The Roys Reflect On Travel To Bogota With Compassion International
September 2, 2010 at 8:31 AM (PT)
PEDESTAL RECORDS duo The ROYS traveled to BOGOTA last month with volunteers from COMPASSION INTERNATIONAL to learn more about the organization. During the trip, LEE and ELAINE each chose to sponsor an eight-year-old child, MIGUEL and NAYELIS.
LEE and ELAINE attended a training seminar and visited an educational center filled with needy children and members of CI. The duo also performed at several impromptu gatherings to crowds of children and volunteers.
ELAINE said: “It was truly an eye-opening experience. We live in such an incredible country, and we take so much for granted. LEE and I will be sharing our mission experience with our fans at our live shows."
LEE said: "The families we met in BOGOTA live in destitute conditions, yet they have a grateful attitude. ELAINE and I have a good life, and are so fortunate to be able to do what we do for a living and share our musical gift with people."
