Let’s Help Kids Go Back to School

Hey, who’s that cutie? Oh, that’s just me, circa 1992.



My kindergarten year was awesome! First off, I had the absolute best kindergarten teacher in the world, Mrs. Taylor. This precious lady loved on hundreds of kids throughout her teaching career. And guess what? She still keeps up with me and prays for me, as she does for so many other former students. To top it off, her husband worked at M&M Mars, and her classroom was M&M themed. Chocolate…kindergarten…what could be better?

As kindergarten was ending, I got chicken pox. I’m not sure there is a worse time to have chicken pox than the last week of kindergarten. But Mrs. Taylor and my parents still made it special for me. I had my own, private kindergarten graduation at lunchtime, between a.m. and p.m. kindergarten.



From kindergarten through twelfth grade and on through college, I had a wonderful education, lacking for nothing. But not every kid is so fortunate.

Did you know…

You can help! Compassion has a textbook fund that covers educational expenses that are on top of what a child sponsorship covers. You can donate to this fund without sponsoring a child, or you can always sponsor a child!
