Autumn, I am  so sorry to hear that you are needing to cancel your sponsorship. We do have some options that may be able to help if this is due to a short term financial difficulty. For example, we could cover three months for you and then lower your support amount to $19 for five months. Please let me know if this would help you in your specific circumstances. Otherwise, let me know and I will make your child available for another sponsor.

Unfortunately, I also need to cancel my sponsorship. I'm going to be doing a lot more family travelling now and I really need to reallocate my funds to help pay for that as it will be quite expensive.

My sponsorship IDs are:
CO062800064
GH045300154

Thank you, and hopefully in the future I will be able to start another sponsorship.

Hi Courtney! I am so sorry that you need to cancel your sponsorships, but I totally understand. I have placed these two kiddos up for sponsorship again today. Please let me know if I can help you further!

Hi Eric, 
I am so sorry that you are thinking of canceling your sponsorship of Christina. I see that you have been sponsoring her for over seven years and we are so thankful for all that you have done for this sweet young lady! May I ask, is there anything that we can do to assist you in keeping your relationship with her? If your request is due to a short term financial circumstance, we would be more than happy to help you out for a few months. We would be happy to cover 3 months of your sponsorship, meaning you would be completely covered from November through January. In addition, we would be happy to reduce your sponsorship rate to $19 per month for the following three months. Therefore, for the months of February through April, you would only be contributing just $19 per month. Please let us know if you feel this would help, or if there is anything else we can do to help! We look forward to hearing back from you!

Hi Brittany, 
I am so sorry you are in a tight place financially right now and it is causing you to consider canceling your sponsorship. I see that one of our representatives had replied to your email earlier today and asked if it would be helpful for us to cover a few months of sponsorship to allow you a small break from the financial commitment. This means that we could cover the months of October through December making your next donation not due until January. Please know we have stopped your automatic withdraw until we hear back from you. However, if you still feel it is best to cancel your sponsorship, please let us know and we will be happy to fulfill your wish to cancel.

Judy, I am so sorry you are faced with such a difficult decision but I can certainly help you with whatever you need to do. I do want to make sure you are aware that we have some extra options if this is due to a short term financial difficulty. First, we could cover your support for three months and then lower your support to $19 per child for five months. You could also go down to one child if that helps. Please let me know if either of these options would be a blessing to you in your situation. If not, please let me know and I will make your children available for another sponsor.

Hello, I also am in need of cancelation. I am saddened to see that I am one of many, but yeah, I just don't see how I can continue. I am a college student and when I started sponsoring I wasn't thinking of doing so, but now I just don't have the funds to continue. I do want to continue sponsoring, but I would need to wait until I'm out of school, which might not be for another 3-4 years. I saw that help was being offered for short-term funding issues, but I think mine is just too long? Thank you for the good experience it has been. I am really saddened that I just don't have the funds available..

Hannah, I am so sorry that you are needing to cancel but I understand. I could not have supported a sponsored child while I was in college either. As you requested, I have made your child available for another sponsor. There is another option that you might consider - you could become a letter writer and encourager for a child whose sponsor is not able to write. There would be no financial commitment. We would just ask that you write to the child at least three times per year. Please let us know if you would be interested in this type of opportunity.

Casey, I am so sorry to hear that you are struggling financially and are not able to continue to support your child. However, as I told Hannah, I understand that it can be tough to sponsor a child while in college. As you requested, I have made your child available for another sponsor. I would also recommend the letter writing program if you are interested in impacting a child in need without the financial commitment.

I also need to cancel. My income situation has changed and can no longer afford to sponsor a child. Please make her available for another sponsor.
