A Brief Blog Profile: Compassion

by Thomas Hynes


There are a lot of Christian blogs out there. They cover a lot of ground. Some talk about family. Some talk about personal finance. Some even talk about fried chicken sandwiches.  The blog Compassion, however, talks about something else. As the name might suggest, they deal with charity. You know? The stuff Jesus Christ was all about. It can be easy to forget that. But, at it's core, Christianity is about helping others. The same can be said for this blog.

On the blog, you can read about the difference between fostering development as opposed to dependence. Sounds a lot like that old expression. Give a man a fish, he'll eat today. Teach a man to fish, and he'll never go hungry. (Wonder who said that one originally...) This post presents 6 questions every person should ask themselves before getting involved with something like sponsoring a child in need. And this post asks readers to think about what inspires them the most.

At this point, I should probably mention that Compassion is part of a larger charitable organization. They connect sponsors to children in need. In full disclosure, this is not just a blog. The main goal, I'm betting, is to get more people to support children in need. And, you know what? I'm totally ok with that.




Reader's Comments


Thanks for posting and getting Compassion out there. I am a full supporter and they are a great organization!

News Widget

Our widget allows you to display PR Newswire content on your site with very little back-end programming required.  You not only get the headline, but also the body of text of the news release, keeping the user on your site at all times.  In order to do so, the difference between our Widget and other widgets is at the end of the sign-up process, you will be provided with two pieces of source code -- one for the page where the Widget itself will be displayed and one for the pages that will display the body of text of each news release.  In addition, the sign-up process allows you to have 100 percent control over every aspect of the Widget's appearance, so that the Widget can blend in fully with the look and feel of your site. Still not convinced? Here's what one blogger had to say about the widget.
