Do you have Compassion?

Shaun Groves first brought Compassion International to my attention.

Their mission - Save kids

He has written some good stuff about his work with them Here, here, & here

He has spread the news about Compassion by offering to come and perform for free in exchange for being able to share about Compassion. But recently he pointed out that this way of getting the word out isn't sustainable. So what is one to do?

Here is my idea:

A grass roots effort to set up local 'task force', 'clubs', 'not-so-secret societies', whatever you'd like to call them with the purpose of telling others about compassion and their mission. To raise awareness in our communities and Save Kids! I haven't thought much farther than this - but do you think it would work? Do you have any ideas? I mean there are clubs for everything - Alumni Associations for Schools, Greeks (Frats and Sororities), Wine Lovers, Book Lovers, etc. Why wouldn't one for Loving and saving kids work? Help me think this through...
