As you all know, it’s Blog Month with Compassion International, and this week there is a whole lot of fun going on to celebrate!


First, Compassion is holding a contest for all of you on Pinterest! I super duper love Pinterest and I’m thrilled it’s being used for a good cause in this case!

This contest will involve you creating a board on Pinterest called “My Sponsored Child,” filling it with images and links to go with the theme, and trying to get as many repins as possible!

If you’re not on Pinterest yet, this will all sound like jibberish, but it is great fun, I promise!

To get started on the contest, read this post for all of the details and start pinning!

{You can check out my board here for ideas!}


Secondly, there is an actual Compassion Blog Month PARTY going on tonight, Thursday, September 20th! I wish I could say it was going to be in person with all of you lovely people, but instead it is a Twitter party!
