JoJo Rock and Ozzy from The Sowers Group have teamed up to spread the message that child sponsorship through Compassion really works. Ozzy was sponsored through Compassion as a child when his father died. He is living proof of the difference child sponsorship can make in the life of a child in Africa.
JoJo Rock has been sponsoring his sponsor child Charles since May 2011 through Compassion Australia. JoJo raises money through his music to make the monthly payments. Over the past 2 years JoJo and Charles have been writing letters to each other and JoJo considers him part of his family.
JoJo is an advocate with Compassion. The words to many of his songs are crafted to inspire people take up the fight against child poverty. He speaks at his performances about what we can all do to make a difference in the world today and most people are left inspired or challenged. His story of one child helping another less fortunate is one he hopes to see replicated across the world.
JoJo started rapping at 7 years old. Since then he has had many opportunities to perform live and spread his message. He comes alive on stage and loves to interact with the crowd. He is very inspirational for young people and enjoys travelling to youth groups to let the youth know that it doesn’t matter your age, you can make a difference too.
JoJo Rock has been interviewed on many radio stations to promote his music and cause. He is full of life, engaging and a very entertaining, as can be seen by his radio interview with Chris Smith from radio 2GB in Sydney Australia.
