Hello!
During the late summer time, my husband and I attended an outdoor concert, family atmosphere, in a garden setting in Denver.
There must have been about 5 thousand people, sitting on picnic blankets, having taken their own food.
At the time I wondered, what if Compassion International were able to have a
Christian focused praise ,worship, prayer and fundraising concert extravaganza?,
and in several major cities? , to pray together for the ministry and all the precious children all over the world....I'm getting excited just thinking about this possibility.
What if....Compassion International Benefit concerts could be held in all the major cities?

Also, what about Christian based Compassion International Christmas carol concerts with rejoicing,praise,prayer and fundraising.
My husband and I do not go to a church and thus have not participated in Compassion Sunday.
In my heart I beleive there are people who would love to donate to Compassion
International even though they may not be able to sponsor a child.
There could be a large screen showing CI clips of the work that CI does.
Of note, people paid approx $40 ticket to attend the summer concert I went to.
Family tickets could perhaps make it more affordable for families to attend.
People were not allowed to take any drinks into the concert, other than bottled water.

Heres another thought. Has CI considered making and selling greeting cards and calendars for fundraising with photos of the beautiful children, or featuring some the
artwork of children? I would love to purchase these if they were available.
Thankyou for having this forum where I could express my ideas.
I'm having some insomnia tonight, and I'm already seeing myself working on the Hot Chocolate with marshmallows at the Christmas Carol concerts!!
