Welcome to Catherine's (not) BIG 6-0 Birthday Celebration!
As you may know, my ‘big 6-0’ is just around the corner, and, in ‘normal’ times, I’d be planning a party, to which you’d be invited!
Given that these are not ‘normal’ times, I’ve decided to turn my birthday party into a fundraiser for Compassion. I’m doing this to bring much needed relief to children and families living in poverty who have been severely impacted by COVID-19. Will you please join me in the fight against poverty and hopelessness?
I’ve been involved with Compassion for almost six years and have had the privilege of visiting my sponsored child, Ana, at her home in El Salvador, twice. There, I was able to witness first-hand the wonderful work Compassion does at the community level. Here at home, I volunteer several times each year at Compassion events, raising awareness of Compassion and signing up child sponsors.
