Compassion comes in all shapes and sizes….

As we prepare for the completion of our Street Meet Project, we've got to stop and give a shout out to all that contributed. Wow! We love you!

For some of us at home giving 5 or 10 dollars may not seem like a lot – but to these street and slum children it can mean the world. We had 28 AWESOME contributors for our “Street Meet” Compassion Project, but it was three special ladies in particular who helped us surpass our initial goal by over $500.

Maddie and Charlie opted out for gifts at their birthday parties this year and decided to raise money for Indian street children through the Tribe of Lambs compassion project.

These girls already are understanding the joy in giving back to those who need it most. 

I want to share with Bobbi cause the kids in India draw with sticks in the dirt.  They don’t have crayons.  They don’t have money.    Bobbi can go shopping for the kids.  It will make them happy and smile.”
