How does the Compassion app help you feel closer to your sponsored child?
Leigh: “[I like] being able to see the center locations on a map. I’m not sure why it makes me feel closer to be told that the center in Indonesia is 10,000 miles away, but knowing that it’s 80 degrees and partly cloudy there is fun! And it’s another reminder that these are real kids with real lives and real needs.”
Allegra: “You can see information about your child's country, climate and their home and school life. This is helpful because I can get a better, more tangible idea of the child’s world, and it gives me more ideas of things to write to them about.”
Mike: “I really enjoy the mapping and weather feature (maybe because I’m a geography geek)! Being able to see the exact location of the Compassion center and also know the current time and weather where my sponsored children live allows me to imagine what they might be doing at the time I check the app.”
