We live in a fast-paced, so called "social" society that does a good job of keeping us consumed in our own little world. We rarely make time for things that stretch us out of our own comfort zones, and when we do, it’s usually because we don’t have much of a choice.
What if there was something we could do that would change the life of someone on the other side of the world? What if a few small sacrifices meant that a hungry child could be fed? We take for granted our overflowing fridges and heaping dinner plates, but so many people go without even the most basic necessities. There are many things we can do to make a difference, and one way is to sponsor a child.
Chalice is a Catholic organization that Cat.Chat has been supporting for almost 15 years. They offer sponsorship programs in over a dozen countries all over the world. Chalice is known as one of the top rated international aid charities.
Pray together as a family and discern if sponsoring a child is something you’re meant to do. For only $37 per month, which is probably less then your family's average fast food meal, you could help provide a child with education, medical care, food, and so much more. Not only will sponsorship support a child in need, but it'll be a huge blessing for your own family. You can send your child letters, plus you'll receive a picture of them and a homemade Christmas card every year.
So what are you waiting for? Take a step outside your usual daily routine and get to know a child who really isn't that much different from your own kids. It's a small way to make a BIG difference.
