It shouldn't end at the Beginning..

Today, May 12th is Australia's Compassion Day.  All across Facebook, Twitter, and Christian Radio Stations, listeners are bombarded with the message of Compassion.

This year is the first year that Compassion Day is focusing on the Child Survival Program, rather than individual Child Sponsorship.

The Child Survival Program is from before birth to 3 yrs and the childs mother / father / guardian.

Compassion is asking for people to commit to supporting the Child Survival Program for as little as $29 a month.  You can choose which Program you would like to support in different countries such as Sri Lanka, Kenya, India, Indonesia and Haiti.
