I haven't gotten all the correspondents that I'm already lined up for, but since the waiting list is so long may I please be added on for 5 more in addition to the 4 I'm still waiting for. Thank you!

Please add me to the correspondent waiting list.


I emailed Compassion a few days ago about being added to the waiting list but still have not heard back (am I supposed to be informed that I have been added?). Could I please be added to receive a boy or a girl under the age of 12 from any country? Thank you!

Hi Compassion, is there any way I could also be added to the waiting list for two more correspondent kids? Writing to mine has been such a blessing already, and I've barely had her for a week! Thank you so much in advance 

also, my sponsor number is 3508998

Hi Hannah! I am so glad that you are already enjoying writing letters to your new child. Every time you send a letter, you are also sending hope and love to that child! We are grateful for you and as requested, I have added you to the list for two additional children. They will be added to your account as they become available.

I recently received my first correspondent child, thank you! I emailed a few days ago to ask to be put on the waiting list for more children but I may have sent it to the wrong department. Can I please be added for two children from India/East India - a girl and a boy? My sponsor number number is 1137708. Thank you.

Hi Philippa! I would be happy to add you to the waiting list for a couple more children to write to :). Regrettably, the sponsor number you provided belongs to someone else. I did find one account under your name however. Are you from Australia? If you are able to provide your current child's reference number so that I am able to verify this account is yours, I will place you on the correspondent list at that time.

Hi Emily. It seems I have two sponsor numbers. I sponsored a child through the American site, but she was transferred to the Australian office. That is the number I gave you. It is definitely my number though so I am concerned that you found it belonged to some one else, as I just wrote to my sponsor child using that number on the letter etc. Was someone else's name attached to that number? The number I should have given you is 3521855. That is the number I have through the American office with my correspondent child. Thanks for your help :)

Philippa, thank you so much for clarifying your sponsor number with me! I looked up your 3521855 account and was able to locate you :). Please rest assured that your other sponsor number for Compassion Australia is assigned to you. I do not have access to your Australia account and so that is why I was unable to see the account with the sponsor number 1137708. If you need to do anything on that account, you will need to contact our office in Australia and they will help you as that number is assigned to a different sponsor in our USA office. 

As requested, I have placed you on the waiting list for 3 additional children to write to! Once a child with those criteria becomes available, we will add him or her to your account. You will remain on the waiting list until you have both a boy and a girl from either East India or India to correspond with. Please let me know if I can help you further.

am I on the correspondence sponsor wait list?.


I emailed ciinfo@compassion.com to be put on the wait list to be a correspondence sponsor but I haven't gotten any confirmation of that request. Can someone check that I'm on the list? I'd really like about five more kids to write, in addition to the two I sponsor. Thank you!

Hello Rachel! I am so sorry if we did not receive the email you sent to our office concerning this inquiry.  As requested, I have added you to the waiting list to correspond with 5 additional children. When a child becomes available, we will add them to your account and you will remain on this list until you have been linked to 5 more kiddos. Thank you so much for speaking truth and life into their lives! Let me know if I can help you with anything else :).

Hi Samantha! Thank you for your desire to write to a child! I see that you financially support one child with us already but this will be your first time being a correspondent for a child :). The only requirement to be a correspondent is to write your child at least 3 times each year. Each letter you send will be so encouraging and fill them with hope and the truth that they are loved! I know you will be a great correspondent because you are already such a faithful letter writer for Ribka. I have added you to the waiting list today.
