Advocacy can take on many forms and look different for each person.
It can look like wearing a t-shirt. It can look like working at a concert. It can look like talking about your sponsored child with your neighbor or friend, It can look like doing a Compassion Sunday presentation. It can look like sharing the gift catalog with your small group. It can look like writing a Compassion themed blog. It can look like running in a race.
Advocacy has many faces and one purpose....to spread the message of sponsorship and to help release children from poverty in Jesus name.
