Do good. Now. Wordmark

The last year has been tough. By 2021, we hoped things would be better, but we’re still asking the same question:

“What good does the future hold?”

The reality is, we simply can’t control what tomorrow brings. So maybe it’s time to ask new questions:

“What good does today hold? What good can I do today?”

Taking care of your family. Coaching your child’s hockey team. Dropping groceries off at your elderly neighbour’s house down the street. Donating to the food bank. Praying for someone at work.

Maybe the good we’re all looking for is already here, in the gift of each day. Maybe it’s about living life day by day. Not growing tired of spreading beauty in our homes and our communities. Maybe it looks like simple acts of kindness that ensure our brothers and sisters thrive.

What does your good life look like?

For us at Compassion, the good life is simple. It’s seeing children thrive.

You see, at Compassion, we’re committed to doing good each day, ensuring children and families around the world have all that they need to escape poverty. How do we do this? By being good neighbours.

We equip local churches around the globe to respond to the immediate and long-term needs of their neighbours. This ensures children and families trapped in poverty have the help and support they need from people within their own communities, so they can hope for tomorrow.

“I have been fundraising for Compassion in my business since November 2020. I decided to donate to Compassion because I absolutely love all the work they do and truly believe in what they are accomplishing.”

“My wife and I have been privileged to call many international boys and girls family by way of Compassion’s child sponsorship program over the years. It has been nothing but joy to be invited to serve in some small way in this God-loved ministry together.”

“Someone once said, ‘it is not how much it costs, but how much it will cause.’ What God is ‘causing’ through Compassion in the lives of children is so tremendous and awe-inspiring, that any cost of volunteering (and there isn’t much) is counted a privilege.”
