Compassion is a Christ-centered, church-based and child-focused charity who act as advocates for children, committed to Jesus Christ in all that we do.
B.R.E Productions International, Inc have been proudly sponsoring children at risk since 2010 and, to date, have been involved in financially sponsoring over 12 children between the ages of 3-18 in their journey from childhood to adults.
Christianity is the core structure of Compassion's ministry and how the life of Jesus, His experiences and teachings shape their programs, reflect the spiritual commitments of their staff, and guide their children and young people on how to love people, respect communities and cooperate with nations.
We fight poverty personally. We are child-focused. When a child is registered in our program the beneficiary of the support is the specific sponsored child.
We work with the neediest and most vulnerable children that we can reach — the poorest of the poor.
Our Child Sponsorship Program offers:
The minimum standards for our Child Sponsorship Program dictate that each church-run child development center provide four to eight hours of programming each week, at least 48 weeks out of the year, and that individual child attendance be taken each time the center is open
Critical needs include opportunities to provide medical assistance (e.g., surgeries, transplants, casts, wheelchairs and canes, cancer treatment, etc.), extra food and nutritional supplements, income-generation training, emergency home repairs and disaster relief, access to clean and safe water, education assistance, and other necessities.
Releasing Children From Poverty
Compassion is a child-advocacy ministry pairing compassionate people with children living in extreme poverty to release the children from spiritual, economic, social, and physical poverty.
Compassion's global Board of Directors serves to define and protect Compassion’s mission. They also help guide the adoption of new policy and ensure that all corporate activities are aligned with our strategic ministry objectives.
Through Compassion's holistic child development model, they blend physical, social, economic and spiritual care together to help children in poverty fully mature in every facet of life and transcend what is often a generational legacy of poverty.
Compassion are able to deliver whole-life care, by way of our frontline church partners, that is personal, individualized, relational, and tailored to the child's age, gender, health, culture and family situation.
When you sponsor a child in poverty, your sponsored child will be linked directly to you. Your sponsored child will know your name and you will be able to write letters to each other.
B.R.E Productions International, Inc. have been sponsoring St. Jude's since 2019 and are supporters of their ground-breaking treatments and discoveries which don't just treat the disease but treat the child as a whole.
The mission of St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital is to advance cures, and means of prevention, for pediatric catastrophic diseases through research and treatment.
More than 70 years ago, Danny Thomas was a young entertainer with a baby on the way. Work wasn't easy to come by, and his despair grew. He turned to St. Jude Thaddeus, the patron saint of hopeless causes. “Show me my way in life,” he vowed to the saint one night in a Detroit church, “and I will build you a shrine.”
That prayer marked a pivotal moment. Soon after, he began finding work, eventually becoming one of the biggest stars of radio, film and television in his day. He was on Make Room for Daddy, later known as The Danny Thomas Show.
Danny had a simple goal: to entertain people and be successful enough at it to provide for his wife and family. But work wasn’t easy to come by. As he and his family struggled, his despair grew. He wondered if he should give up on his dreams of acting or find a steady job.
Consistent with the vision of the founder Danny Thomas, no child is denied treatment based on race, religion or a family's ability to pay.
Danny used his fame to fulfill his vow and to change the lives of thousands of children and families and, on February 4th, 1962,
St. Jude Children's Research Hospital opened in front of a crowd of 9,000 in Memphis, Tennessee and vowed, based on Danny's dream, that "no child should die in the dawn of life."

Finding Cures. Saving Children
Since then, St. Jude's have made incredible strides in childhood cancer research.
They have helped improve the survival rate of childhood cancer from 20% to 80%. And ALL, the disease with a virtual death sentence in 1962, now has a survival rate of 94 percent.
Today, St. Jude Children's Research Hospital is a world leader in developing new, improved treatments for children with cancer, and they have created more clinical trials for cancer than any other children's hospital.
St. Jude's freely share those breakthroughs, and every child saved at St. Jude means doctors and scientists worldwide can use that knowledge to save thousands more children.
St. Jude's Cancer Center supports five major interdisciplinary research programs that are organized with the specific intent of translating basic science discoveries into curative therapies for children with cancer, while minimizing long-term side effects. Their three disease-oriented programs focus on Developmental Biology and Solid Tumors, Hematological Malignancies, and Neurobiology and Brain Tumors; their Cancer Control and Survivorship Program strives to improve the quality of life of individuals surviving childhood cancer; and their Cancer Biology Program embeds basic cancer research within the heart of the center, facilitating direct interaction between the disease-oriented programs and the major laboratory resources in the center.
And still today as when they opened their doors, families never receive a bill from St. Jude for treatment, travel, housing or food – because all they should worry about is helping their child live.
Danny Thomas passed away in 1991, but he left us with an enduring legacy and commitment to saving the lives of children everywhere.
St. Jude Children's Research Hospital won’t stop until no child dies from cancer.
Be The Match® is a global leader in bone marrow transplantation. We conduct research to improve transplant outcomes provide support and resources for patients, and partner with a global network.
When their 10-year-old daughter Laura was diagnosed with leukemia, Robert Graves, D.V.M., and his wife Sherry were ready to do anything they could to save her. Desperate to save her life, they turned to alternative treatment options. They agreed to try the first ever bone marrow transplant for a leukemia patient from an unrelated donor.
Laura received her transplant in 1979. And it worked.
The success of the treatment inspired the Graves to give other families the same hope for a cure. Thanks to Dr. Graves, other patient families, doctors, congressional support and funding from the U.S. Navy, a national registry of volunteers willing to donate bone marrow was born.
The cure for blood cancer is in the hands of ordinary people. One simple action can be the difference that gives a patient hope for the future.
Transplant becomes a reality for more patients
Beyond establishing the registry, we also invested in medical research to find the answers that would save the lives of more patients.
For the thousands of people diagnosed every year with life-threatening blood cancers like leukemia and lymphoma, a cure exists. Over the past 30 years Be The Match ® , operated by the National Marrow Donor Program ® (NMDP), has managed the largest and most diverse marrow registry in the world. We work every day to save lives through transplant.
