Join the Celebration Via Live Stream
We are so excited that many of you will be present in Colorado Springs Saturday evening to celebrate as we honor Dr. Wess Stafford as he retires from 36 years of service with Compassion and introduces Santiago “Jimmy” Mellado as he accepts the mantle of leadership from Wess to serve as Compassion’s next President and CEO. We realize it is simply not feasible for everyone to be present, so the evening celebration will be streamed live online for you to "attend" from the comfort of where you are. The celebration takes place from 7 to 9 p.m. Mountain Time on Saturday, Sept. 14.
After the event takes place a recording will be available on the online.

OMOD Webinar Sept. 17
One Meal One Day is a national event that brings people together to skip a meal, experience hunger and give funds so that children in poverty can receive the help they desperately need. Mark your calendars, because November 6th, 2013, is about serving children in extreme poverty by skipping a meal and raising both funds and awareness to fight poverty.
You can look forward to receiving more information in the mail, or to learn more now visit onemealoneday.com.
Register for the webinar on September 17th to learn even more about the OMOD campaign and resources available for you to share with your friends and family! This webinar is open to sponsors, advocates and non-sponsors. Click here to register!

Volunteer Opportunity at MOPS Convention
Compassion has a unique opportunity to connect with young moms this October at the annual Moms of Preschoolers (MOPS) Convention, MomCon 2013, in Kansas City, MO.
We have created family-oriented resources to come alongside moms and dads as they help their children see the world through God's eyes. In addition to our ongoing resources such as Explorer Magazine and Quest for Compassion, we will provide a special mini Gift Catalog with a complimentary family activity guide. Would you like an opportunity to connect with these young moms and share all that Compassion has to offer their families? We are looking for volunteers to serve at our booth October 17-19, 2013. Please email Jill DeRaad if you are interested!
You can access the advocate volunteer slots for the MOPS convention by doing an event search through My Account.
