Good Morning Compassion,
May I be added to the list for three more correspondence children? It doesn't matter where from.
Thank you,
Jacqueline

Hello Susan,

May I please be added to the correspondence list, as well?  I would love to correspond with another girl!  I have no preference of age or country.  Thank you so much!

Susan  (or anyone else who knows),

Sorry to hijack this thread but could you point me to a resource about the correspondence program? I've seen mnetion of it in passing but am unfamiliar with all the fine print. For example, it's my understanding that this program is to write to children for whom the monetary obligation is being paid by another sponsor who has opted not to write. What happens, though, if that sponsor leaves and the child gets a new sponsor who does correspond? I have more, but I'm sure I can work some of it out on my own if I have the resources.

Lindsay, 

I'm so sorry but we really don't have an official resource on the correspondence program. However, I'm happy to answer any questions you might have! The program links a child, who is already financially supported but their sponsor is unable to write letters, with a volunteer, who has a heart for writing letters. We've seen the incredible impact of loving letters on children in poverty and we developed this program to help make sure that more children receive letters. There is no financial commitment as a correspondent sponsor but only the commitment to write at least two letters a year. You would receive all of the materials as if you were sponsoring that child and would be the only one writing those letters back and forth. If a financial sponsor cancels their sponsorship, the correspondent sponsor would be notified first to sponsor that child. If the correspondent sponsor is unable to financially sponsor that child, the child would be made available for full sponsorship (letters and donations). If the child leaves the program, both the financial sponsor and the correspondent sponsor would be notified. We would give the correspondent sponsor another replacement correspondent child unless they tell us otherwise.

Thanks, Susan!

I'd love to be a correspondent to another kid so please feel free to add me to the waiting list. I've been debating taking another on but sponsoring 4 already, this would be a great way to contribute without necessarily accruing much more monthly expense.

Great! I'm happy to help! I just added you to the correspondent waiting list. As soon as a child becomes available for this program we will send you their packet and you will be able to begin writing.
