Hi Matt! It sounds like you want people to have the opportunity to start their sponsorship of a child they pick up at an event (like Compassion Sunday) immediately instead of waiting for a few weeks for the packet to be processed. Is that correct? We actually have a way for sponsors to do that :)! Sponsors can start their relationship with their child right after picking them up at an event by entering their information on line at: https://www.compassion.com/firstpayment/ as long as they have the child name and ID as well as the source code for the event. You are welcome to share that link with any new sponsors you speak with!

That's what I usually tell people they can do. I worked several events and after 2 or 3 events I thought of this.  I also told people about the other programs since some people didn't find a child to sponsor after looking at the child packets.

Matt. If you haven't been to visit your sponsor child yet, I hope you do as soon as you can.
