2018 Gift Catalog
At Compassion Planet, we do more than rescue; we believe every at-risk youth entrusted to us has the capacity to overcome as well as become valuable leaders, and members of our community. The gifts in this year’s catalog were chosen to have the greatest impact on the youth we serve as they transform their lives.
