Kids Give Chore Money to Release Others From Poverty

The Flaig kids

If there is one thing we’ve learned time and time again at Compassion Experience events, it’s that kids can have a huge impact on the world if they are allowed to.

The Flaig family visited an event in Spokane, WA and the kids asked their parents how they could sponsor through Compassion. After some conversation, the four siblings decided they could each forego $10 per month of their chore money to support four other kids in developing countries.

When one of our staff asked how long they’d be committing $10 of chore money to their sponsored kids, their mom responded, ‘Until they graduate!’ which promptly caused the youngest daughter to burst into tears. ‘Until you graduate’ is a long time to give $10 per month when you’re in elementary school!

She recovered quickly, though, and could be seen smiling and laughing as she left the event. Because of their sacrifice, four other kids around the world are also smiling and laughing at the joy of having sponsors.

Remember that when you give your kids the opportunity to come up with a way to get involved, they may surprise you with their creativity. Thank you, Flaig family, for setting such a great example!

Mobile Experience-2

Change the Story will bring you as close to another country and culture as you can get without a passport. This interactive, immersive display allows you to step into the life of a child who has suffered under the crippling weight of poverty.

But the journey does not end there.

In the span of less than 30 minutes, you will travel with that child from hardship to hope. And in the midst of hope, you will see that child’s story transformed through the support of Compassion and the child’s life-giving relationship with a sponsor.
