TREASURE CHEST OF COOL LINKS FOR HAPPY COMPASSION SPONSORS …
…OVER 60 PAGES (AND SHRINKING… huh?!)
Welcome to the treasure chest of cool links! You are welcome to download this list for your own use, but it is a continual work in progress, so be sure to check back periodically for the updated version. (Last updated: 31 May 2015). Eventually, a direct link will show against each topic on the list, to the exact page you are looking for on my web site, making it a quick and easy reference for busy sponsors. The easiest way to find something specific on the downloaded list is to: Press CTRL + F – then type what you are looking for into the search box… enjoy! :)
A bit of History behind Cool Links – consider it ‘today’s piece of useless information’. This list was originally compiled by me for the Compassion International sponsors forum from my own research and many, many suggestions that other sponsors have found helpful. I know for sure that many of the links are now broken. It was originally my intention to update the list and post it here, however this would have been a mammoth task ~ as well as probably giving WordPress a bad hair day! :) ~ so I am attacking it in smaller chunks and adding my own creative ideas, free printable designs and articles for kids as we go. Be patient while it loads and be warned. It’s an eye-glazing list. I think I’ve given Google Docs a bad hair day instead! :)
A great BIG THANK YOU to everyone who has shared their treasure with us! You are welcome to keep adding your suggestions in the comments section below and I will make sure they are included on the next update.
