What are you doing tomorrow night?
Wanna go to a concert?
Wanna help some people in Haiti?
How ’bout do both? Compassion is hosting Help Haiti LIVE tomorrow night (February 27) 7:30CT. There are tons of performers: Big Kenny, Alison Krauss with Union Station featuring Jerry Douglas, Jars of Clay, Mat Kearney, Jon Foreman, Matt Wertz, Brandon Heath, Dave Barnes, and NEEDTOBREATHE. If you’re in Nashville you can head over there but I think it’s sold out. So, you can just snuggle up on the couch and tune in LIVE on their website: HelpHaitiLive.com If you’re on twitter you can live tweet it with the hashtag #hhlive.
OK. So, that’s Haiti. Now about Kenya…my friend (ok, so I’ve exchanged one paragraph of a real live conversation and I read her blog. So, I consider her a friend), Kristen from We Are That Family is going to Compassion’s next Blogger trip to Kenya. Oh, I got tears in my eyes when she announced it! She’ll be there from March 4-10 and if you don’t read her blog or have never followed one of Compassion’s trips, I encourage you to do so! It will be life-changing.
And while we’re at it, I just wanted to let you know about Compassion’s Child Survival Program. It’s so cool—they provide pre- and post-natal care for moms and babies (including skilled birth attendants), they give regular food, teach parenting classes and kids’ classes for moms and kids up to age 3. For $20 a month you can partner with one of these programs. I just started supporting one in Fauche, Haiti. You need to check it out. One of the coolest ministries I’ve seen. And it’s got me thinking about something I want to do…I need to think about it a little more. But if this touches your heart, email me. I want to talk about it.
Ok. That’s all. Lydia is pulling on my arm because we’re going to a museum with some friends today! YAY! Have a great weekend!
