In light of the immediate need caused by the devastating earthquake in Haiti, Compassion International has postponed the Global Food Crisis Day on February 10th and instead is inviting stations to participate in a nationwide "Help Haiti with Compassion Day" on Monday, February 1st.
In a letter to Christian radio stations, Compassion President Wess Stafford says,
"I'm going to simply ask you straight out, will you join with us on that day?
Will you dedicate the entire day to alerting your listeners to both the urgent needs and the opportunity to make a long-term impact in Haitian lives? We believe that the future of Haiti belongs to the children, who will help revitalize this nation in the years to come. And they will do it in Jesus name!
Compassion has ministered in Haiti for over 40 years and I personally spent four years of my life working there alongside these beautiful Haitian children. I witnessed so much that stood against them, yet I know God is for them, even in a time as dark as this.
Please do something on February 1st. Give your listeners a chance to go beyond the immediate relief needs and make a lasting investment in Haiti's future ... the children."
Join Compassion for a powerful, one-day national radio event to help your listeners bring hope to a devastated a country, desperate for both immediate and long-term solutions.
Every station can do something. Let's join together with one voice February 1st to "Help Haiti with Compassion".
