Melanie, I am sorry to hear that you are needing to cancel. May I ask is this due to a short term financial difficulty? If so, we have some options that may be able to help. For example, we would be happy to cover three months support for you through the end of May and then starting in June we could lower your support amount to $19 for five months. Please let me know if this would help. If not, let me know and I will make your child available for another sponsor.

Thank you for the options but I do need to cancel completely. My finances are a disaster right now and I'm giving to three different charities. There has not been one month in a long time that my account is not overdrawn. I also feel like I am too depleted to be a good sponsor. At this time I do not have the inspiration, time, or energy to write letters or send pictures. However, I do love this charity and if things do turn around for me financially and spiritually I will certainly remember Compassion.
Thank you,
Melanie Beck

Hi Melanie, 
I am so sorry to hear that you are feeling overwhelmed by finances right now. I pray that God will lay peace onto your life and lead you to a financially stable place very soon! We completely understand needing to cut back in your giving at this time. I have canceled your account today. Please know that if you would like to, you are more than welcome to send Ritu a final letter. Please write “Final Letter” across the top of the correspondence, along with your child's name and child's number, (BD051601165). Please send your letter to Compassion's address below:  

Compassion International

If in the future you would like to sponsor another child, we would be blessed to partner with you again! God bless!
