The Framework of Compassion: Unity

Without different colors how amazing could a sunset really be? With just one note would your favorite song sound so sweet?

It’s differences and variations coming together that lead to the wonderful things in our lives. Like the many notes in a song, or a palette of colors in the sky. We believe building bridges across our differences allows us to unite as a force for good, and create amazing things in our world.

As Mother Teresa said, “I can do things you cannot, you can do things I cannot; together we can do great things.”

This week, as part of our framework of compassion series we want you to think about the importance of unity in your life. By doing so, who knows what kind of great things you could be a part of?

The Framework of Compassion: Integrity

Continuing our framework of compassion series, today we’re talking integrity.

When thinking about integrity, we’re reminded of the Hansons, an incredible family we met in Las Vegas at our 1000th Community Outreach. They define integrity.

While living in poverty and having four children of their own, they adopted a fifth child in need and gave her a new life.

Inspirations like the Hanson’s remind us why integrity is one of our core values.

For us, excellence means putting our heart into everything we do! For us, excellence means putting our heart into everything we do!

The Framework of Compassion: Excellence

It’s week three of our series exploring Convoy of Hope’s ten core values, our framework of compassion. Today, we strive for excellence.

Merriam-Webster’s dictionary defines excellence as ‘extremely high quality’. That’s a fair, although rather vanilla, definition of excellence. Our definition of excellence is about how we serve those in need:

Providing a hungry child her first nutritious meal in months.

Handing the keys of a new home over to a storm survivor.

Teaching a mother in El Salvador skills to provide for her family.

What’s your definition of excellence? Whatever it is, make it happen. Even better, make it happen for someone else.

The Framework Of Compassion: Service

Today we are continuing with the second week of our series covering Convoy of Hope’s ten core values, our framework of compassion. Last week we covered love. This week we are covering how we make love tangible, through service.

Famous English writer John Bunyan once said, “You have not lived today until you have done something for someone who can never repay you.” This is the mentality we carry at Convoy of Hope when we think about service. Service is about giving and expecting nothing in return.

Like Bunyan, we think of service as a win-win situation. We are blessed with the opportunity to help someone in need as we experience a deep and lasting joy that reaches all parts of life.

This weekend we encourage you to serve someone you love and expect nothing in return. Clean their dishes. Fold their laundry. Show a little love through service!
