A holiday wish for our sponsored child

Last year I was reading a fellow bloggers post about Compassion International. Compassion International is a Christian child sponsorship organization dedicated to the long-term development of children living in poverty around the world. At that point, our family made the decision to sponsor a child in need from Uganda.

For minimal money a month, we could actually give a child a meal a day, ability to attend school, necessary medical care and of course, hope. Our family feels wonderful that we can do this but the more important lesson was the that our son learn that there are much less fortunate children around the world and that he can help. When Capital One asked if we would like to help spread awareness for the Wish For Others campaign, I knew sharing our story about Precious, our sponsored child, would be perfect. Through a campaign called “#WishForOthers,” Capital One is hoping to help make the holidays a little brighter this year by helping to share and grant people’s wish for others.

I asked my son what his wish would be this holiday season and he agreed that wishing for peace, happiness and health would be wonderful for Precious and her family. Here is a sweet picture of Precious below.

Isn’t our little man adorable? So proud of him!
