Review for COMPASSION SERVICES INTERNATIONAL, OFallon, MO, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

CSI is great about keeping me updated about how the funds are used. They send regular e mails and video stories that are very inspirational. They communicate about the teams that are leaving for what countries and what goals they set out to accomplish and later how those goals were met; great feedback!
CSI is also prompt in responding to questions about donation receipts and providing a tax statement at the end of the year.
I can tell that these people are very compassionate about what they do for others and are accountable to the people who contribute to their cause ! I am happy to donate to such a great organization!

Thank you CSI for all you do to count for Christ in this present world!

Review for COMPASSION SERVICES INTERNATIONAL, OFallon, MO, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

The reason why I am confident to donate to this organization is that I know the people that are helped by my contributions--the services and money given to people in need are real and relevant.
I really liked the ON-SITE video update about the tornado victims in Oklahoma--this video was so well done and allowed contributors to understand the situation, and real needs of people in Real- Life situations. It is COMPASSION IN ACTION --true reaching out to another in need--a hand up, not just a hand out.

Another example that gripped me was the story of how one family in the church in Greece had not eaten any meat in over a year. Due to the economic depression in the country, any food was scarce. To hear the NAMES of families and individual people,-- to see A FACE and a need before me, made giving to this cause a natural and reasonable inclination. The stories helped me to know the people--they became like family to me, but living on the other side of the world. I felt like I was sending a personal package to someone I knew.

To hear the words from this organization that I could send: 'whatever I could contribute'....
helped me to realize I could make a big difference with even a small gift. This attitude of
giving what I could, helped me to feel good about what I could do, and NOT bad about what I could NOT do. I did not act out of guilt, but out of relief and compassion, joyfully knowing that funds would get to where they needed to be, quickly and efficiently!

I trust this organization. I will confidently continue to contribute to Compassion International through the United Pentecostal Church. I look for, and depend on CSI to let me know where the needs are in the world; both here in the United States or abroad, all places are equally represented.
I want to help those in need around me , close and far , and I know this organization will direct my funds into the most appropriate avenues to help the most people possible.

Thank you CSI for helping me to GIVE !

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

A follow-up video showing 'this is how your funds made a difference'. Also, make available a way for individual monthly sponsorship for a family, Bible School or other student. Also make available water filtration units for families in countries without clean water supplies. To know how to send medicine/ supplies for clinics to medical workers who can share the gospel with people they are treating- set up a way to do this, and communicate this to contributors would be GREAT !
