Community Members Put Compassion Into Action
Positive Life Radio Listeners Sponsor 170 Children

Children receive support through Compassion International.
Compassion is more than just a word for 170 children in countries such as Colombia, Haiti, Uganda, Peru and Guatemala. For these children, compassion is a person living in the College Place and Walla Walla area—someone who cares enough to provide hope.

That hope has come in the form of sponsorship. During the Positive Life Radio Days of Compassion, listeners from throughout the Inland Northwest signed up to sponsor children who otherwise would face a life of poverty and disease.
“We team up with Compassion International [www.compassion.com] every year,” says Sali Miller, promotions manager. “Sponsorship makes a huge difference for these kids. Thirty-eight dollars a month means food, clean water, medical care, education opportunities and life-skills training for a child. Meeting these basic needs gives children a chance to build a better future.”
Of course, it’s not always easy reaching out to help someone. It can stretch the family budget here at home. But, as one sponsor says, “Being financially uncomfortable is worth it.”
“It’s not too late to join the program,” Miller says. For more information visit the Positive Life Radio website at www.plr.org or call 1-800-355-4757.
