Like most young people, my kids live in extremes. Some day they are extremely awesome and some days they aren’t. A lot like me, actually. But every day, we are all one choice away from changing the world.
Last week I introduced them to JoJo Rock, a 9 year old rapper, who wrote a creative arrangement of Amazing Grace to help raise money, so he could sponsor his own child and spread the word that Compassion sponsorship really works. (I completely agree).
I love this kid already.
I pulled my kids over to my laptop and shared this song with them:
My six year old said, “I want to do something like that!”
And she wasn’t talking about rapping.
World Changing. It’s the new black.
We sat down as a family and I shared four causes I knew of that had an immediate need. My kids chose to buy a sewing machine for someone in a third world country to start their own business and are planning a garage/bake/stuff sale. They are in charge!
Our kids rock, sometimes they just need a little inspiration from other world changers like JoJo and a little encouragement from us.
This weekend everyone brought ten things from their room to donate to the sale. It’s a small idea, big impact.
You can make a difference today: Would you help JoJo raise money to help his sponsored child?
I dare you to be inspired and encourage your kids to rock!
