Blog Trip Marks Five Years of Successfully Communicating the Ministry of Compassion International through Popular Bloggers
COLORADO SPRINGS, Colo. (Jan. 15, 2014) — On Jan. 27, five popular bloggers will launch a blog tour with Compassion International that will highlight their experience visiting some of the world’s poorest and most-vulnerable children in Uganda.
Daily visits to Compassion International child development centers and other areas of great need in Uganda will allow these bloggers to write blog updates and upload photos and videos from their own perspective on topics surrounding poverty in Uganda.
Trip leaders, Wess Stafford, Compassion International president emeritus, and Shaun Groves (blogging at shaungroves.com), Christian singer/songwriter, speaker and blogger, will lead the following bloggers on the tour:
“For five years Compassion International has been inviting bloggers to see our ministry to children for themselves and write honestly about what they experience,” said Groves. “The firsthand accounts of these talented bloggers have moved thousands of readers past skepticism to generosity. Their pictures put faces on statistics. Their words bring conversations across oceans and into our living rooms. They make poverty and hope real for people who will never get to see Compassion's ministry for themselves. More than 6,000 children have been sponsored because of the efforts of Compassion Bloggers.”
Readers can follow the Uganda blog tour at CompassionBloggers.com/Uganda14 from Jan. 27-31.
