A few weeks ago you would have received an email from Roshan Allpress, asking you to consider financially supporting the Compass Foundation.Awesome, Charles; being out there, and living it. Shame about the Foundation. It seems the Maxim Institute's devilishly cunning plan to provide the fundy yoof with a worldview has fallen on hard times. Now, I am not one to interfere, but I think they should be looking at staffing: having three full-time staff to run two summer conferences is a little excessive, somewhat like a department store employing Santa all year round.
We wanted to add our support to that call.
As three people who have been keenly involved in Compass for years, we’re totally committed to its vision and mission. Like many others we’ve been enormously impacted ourselves by the teaching and the community of Compass. And we can see the effect this will have on New Zealand in the years to come.
As Roshan explained, the work of Compass has to date been grown on the back of some very generous, big thinking individuals. It’s time now to share that load and in summary we need to raise just on $4000 in monthly support.
We’ve each signed up for $100 a month along with other generous monthly donors who give between $10 and $80 a month, and wonder if you might join us? Just over 100 giving an average of $35 each would see us there. For some of you $10 will be a sacrifice, whilst others will be able to do more. There are over 600 Compass alumni so if just one in six take up the challenge...
Many thanks for giving this some real thought. We’ll keep you updated on our progress toward that target.
Out there living it
Maybe they could make themselves useful by checking the writing of their elders and betters: such a sentence as "like many others we’ve been enormously impacted ourselves by the teaching and the community of Compass" never should have been released from captivity.
