Who are we?
We are a group of young people who are raising money for Compassion by riding our bicycles from Caboolture to Toowoomba for Easterfest. We’ll be starting our ride at Caboolture Sizzler on Sunday March 24 2013 and finishing on Wednesday March 27 2013 at Queen’s Park, Toowoomba.
Our trip will be approximately 224km’s and will consist of a mixture of city roads, country roads, mountains, hills, farmland and bushland. We will be covering the costs of the trip ourselves – equipment, food, accommodation etc. which means that more of your donation will actually go to Compassion. Please note that Everyday Hero takes a small commission to cover the cost of their servers, payment gateways etc.
Who/what is compassion?
Compassion is an international Christian child development and child advocacy ministry committed to working in partnership with local churches around the world to foster the spiritual, economic, social, physical and emotional development of children living in extreme poverty in over 26 developing countries.
Compassion’s holistic child development programs are unique in being delivered in partnership with local churches in developing countries. These local congregations can best identify the specific needs of children in their community and are able to contextualise our programs to drive change in their own community. Because we believe that it’s not enough to simply feed a child in poverty without introducing them to the source of life, Jesus, our programs address not only the physical needs of children and their families, but also their spiritual needs through Bible-based teaching.
