All-female country music group The Lunabelles are asking for some help from country music fans. The four girls recently traveled to Columbia with Compassion International in an effort to battle childhood poverty. The girls spend the whole week in the country, visiting schools, churches and communities that the organization helps.
“I have been raving about Compassion ever since we left Colombia,” says Dominique Arciero, who sings and plays piano and mandolin. “When people ask me how the trip was, my mind immediately jumps to the people who work hands-on in these little communities to make Compassion’s intentions come true, daily.”
The Lunabelles are one of many country music acts to embrace Compassion International and their charity work. Buddy Jewel, Emerson Drive, John Berry, and bluegrass group The Roys have all supported the charity in the past. Compassion International is the largest Christian organization that battles childhood poverty. They currently help 1.2 million children in 26 of the world’s poorest countries. Founded in 1952, they focus on tackling poverty one child at a time.
