After sponsoring kids for over a decade, I know Compassion International provides help and hope where it's needed most. I'm looking forward to seeing more of what they do and sharing how others can be a part of that too. - Blogger Holley Gerth
COLORADO SPRINGS, Colo. (PRWEB) February 11, 2015
Next week, four well-known bloggers will join Compassion International on the organization’s 13th Compassion Bloggers Trip. The bloggers will learn more about the global child development-through-sponsorship ministry and visit some of the world’s poorest and most vulnerable children in Compassion’s programs in the Dominican Republic.
To date, more than 7,500 children living in poverty have been sponsored through the efforts of Compassion bloggers. Daily visits to Compassion child development centers and other areas of great need will allow the bloggers to write and upload photos and videos to their blogs and social media from their own perspective on topics surrounding extreme poverty.
Bloggers on this tour include:
- Holley Gerth, blogger of holleygerth.com and Wall Street Journal bestselling author
- Bonnie Gray, blogger at faithbarista.com and author of Finding Spiritual Whitespace
- Lisa Leonard, blogger at lisaleonardonline.com/blog and owner of Lisa Leonard Designs
- Ruth Soukup, blogger at livingwellspendingless.com and New York Times bestselling author
