Many of us have a passion for serving children and families in poverty. We may be sponsors, correspondents, child advocates, and event volunteers... but there is still more that we want to do to get involved!
I came across this blog last year telling be about Compassion's Street Team on FanCorps. FanCorps is an organization that is in the business of running “street teams.” It began with music artists and expanded into non-profit organizations.
Compassion uses FanCorps as a platform to evangelize about Compassion's ministry through social networking. How it works is there is a list of "orders" or "assignments" that Compassion comes up with for members to fulfill. Each order is given a point value. Point can be used to earn free prizes through Compassion. Many of these items are also found in the Compassion Store, while others include Christian music, movies, and discounts for Sponsor Tours (my favorite).
