THE ROYS On A Mission - Partner With Compassion International To Help Bogoto's Needy

THE ROYS On A Mission - Partner With Compassion International To Help Bogota's Needy

Organization Offers Nutritional, Spiritual, Educational And Health Assistance

Nashville, TN (September 2, 2010) -- Brother and sister duo THE ROYS traveled to Bogota last month with volunteers from Compassion International to learn more about the organization and its mission to positively impact a community of 13 million. During the trip, Lee and Elaine each chose to sponsor an eight-year old child - Miguel and Nayelis.

The four-day trip THE ROYS took to the impoverished country was a busy one; Lee and Elaine attended a training seminar and visited an educational center filled with needy children and members of CI. THE ROYS observed extreme living conditions: dirt floors, no heat, and one home without a roof. "It was truly an eye-opening experience," explains Elaine. “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." The duo performed at several impromptu gatherings to joyful crowds of children and volunteers.
The siblings returned to the U.S. with a new outlook. "The families we met in Bogota live in destitute conditions, yet they have a grateful attitude," Lee adds. "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."

THE ROYS are also donating their time and energies to the Jerry Lewis MDA Telethon, and will perform on the broadcast this Labor Day weekend.
