I have worked with World Vision as an Artist Associate since 1998. Â Over the course of these years I have seen people in my audience generously respond as messengers of hope. Â They have helped and sponsored 2,500 children living under the weight of poverty and vulnerable to HIV/AIDS.
I’M NOT a politician with influence over nations.
I’M NOT a scientist with an antidote to cure disease.
I AM an artist with a platform and opportunity to be a voice for those who don’t have one.
I AM a fellow traveler in this world where I can stand with others against injustice and advocate for the hopeless.
I AM a follower of Jesus and believe it is right to love everyone and not forget the widow and the orphan.
I work with World Vision because they are an honest organization actively and effectively helping people. Â I’ve traveled to Africa and Central America to see this work first hand. Â I’ve spent time in villages and communities where hope is returning and joy lives, because of our help. Â When you see a child start to believe they have value and worth….it not only changes them, it changes you.
My family and I sponsor 5 children through World Vision. Â I’ve met two of these children in person and witnessed the profound impact sponsorship has on their lives. Â This simple act, when we send money every month, is helping to change the lives of these children, their families and their communities.
