To Africa With Compassion

In February of 2008, fifteen other bloggers and I went to Uganda with Compassion International. The trip changed my life in ways I can’t even begin to explain. And more importantly, the trip changed the lives of over 500 kids who were sponsored by people who followed our journey on the web.

These are the posts I wrote before, during, and after the trip.

And if you have any questions about Compassion, feel free to email me. I’ll do my best to put you in touch with some great people who have all the answers.
