Messina for Compassion International

Want to join me in releasing children from poverty in Jesus' name? I'm raising money to benefit Compassion International. If each of you give just $20, I will reach my goal. More is much appreciated of course, but any donation will make an impact.
Why swimming? Swimming is hard, just like the lives of these children. The drag that opposes moving through water is like the poverty that hinders these children in life. Clean water is one thing many children have little or no access to. And because water represents change...
Water is always changing shape and form, and even color from the clear of a raindrop to the pure white of a snowflake. Would you join me in bringing about change in the lives of children in poverty?
I considered selecting something specific as my goal, but decided instead to allow my donation to be used where most needed, because in our volatile world, greatest needs are constantly changing.
Thank you very much for your contribution to this cause that means so much to me.
