Compassion, Pinterest and a Contest
As you know by now, it's Blog Month at Compassion. That means they give weekly assignments to Compassion Bloggers so we can help spread the word about sponsoring children in poverty.
This week's assignment has to do with a Pinterest Contest.
We're instructed to create a "My Sponsored Child" pinboard on Pinterest, and then post a picture of ourselves holding a picture of our sponsored child (or a letter we received from them).
Well, we've been sponsoring Yash for such a short time, that we have not received a tangible photo of him yet, nor have we corresponded.
I did, however, capture an image of him from Compassion's website, and my darling, PS savvy daughter created this photo for me. We already had a photo of me holding the frame for another project she's working on, so she added Yash to it.
Yay, I love it. Thank you, Kristiina!
Anyway, back to that contest... Maybe you're not a blogger... and maybe you already sponsor a child...
Well! You can help spread the word, too, via your Pinterest account (don't have an account? Just go to www.pinterest.com for details on how to get one.) Once you're a pinner, go here to follow their instructions for what to do with your "My Sponsored Child" board.
And if you don't sponsor a child yet, you can also enter the contest by sponsoring a child via compassion.com/my-sponsored-child during the contest period. You will receive 30 contest entries for each child you sponsor.
All winners will be chosen randomly.
Ten separate sponsors will win a $25 gift for their sponsored child.
Five separate sponsors will win a $100 gift for their sponsored child’s family.
The contest runs from Sept. 17 to 23, 2012.
Not ready to commit to all this? You can still help Yash win those dollars (and spread the word about Compassion's mission) just by going to my pin board and repinning this:
Yash and I would be grateful!
Okay... let's get pinning!
