I just signed up to sponsor a little boy from Uganda; I can't seem to create an account either. Is that sort of the same issue you have?

Hi Ashley and Melissa! Thank you both so much for your passion for helping children and for choosing to change the story for a child in our program! These kiddos will be so excited to find out they now have sponsors! 

Ashley, we have an account and new sponsor number for you that you can use to create an account online. I'm sending you an email with your new sponsor number and instructions on how to set it up. Let me know if you have any issues :). 

Melissa, I don't see that an account has been created for you yet under your email address. Your request to sponsor your boy might still be processing through our system. Do you have your child's ID number?

Hi Melissa! Like Emily mentioned might be the case, we haven't yet processed your sponsorship for David. I'd be happy to send you an email with your sponsor number and instructions on setting up your online account as soon as we have processed the sponsorship! He is such a cutie! You are going to love sponsoring him. I can't wait for him to find out he has a sponsor because he has been waiting for one since February. You are an answer to prayer for David! :)

I love how much enthusiasm you have for him already, Melissa! Usually, it can take a few days for us to receive those packets from events and completely set up your account. I will watch for your account like a hawk and email you immediately ;)!

Hi Noreen! Your sponsor number is 4040309. I see that you have created your username, which is VocalCoach. Would you like us to reset your password for you?

Hi Katie! Welcome to the Compassion family! Thank you so much for blessing sweet Marchely with your sponsorship :). I am happy to help you log into your My Account. I see that you have already created one shortly after you posted your question here. I would like to verify that you are able to log in now :). Is everything working for you? Is there any way I may be of assistance? Thank you!

Yes it let me create my account the morning after I began sponsoring Marchely! Do you know about how long it should be until I get my packet in that mail? Thanks!

Glad to hear it, Katie! :) It typically takes about ten business days to receive the packet in the mail.

Hi, I sponsored a little boy named Elvis (BO4150992) a few days ago, and I'm not able to create my account yet. I know I'll get my packet in the mail within 15 days which will have my sponsor number, but I was wondering if I could get an email when my account is set up so I can login before that? I'm just eager to get started right away, especially since he waited so long for a sponsor! But if it's too much trouble I understand, I'll just hope the packet gets here soon! :)

Hello,

I just recently sponsored 2 boys Amisi Eryabu and Tuyishime Emmanuel, and my receipt does not show the country for my mailing address (as I love outside of Canada and USA). I was wondering it was not printed clearly in the receipt or I have forgotten to input it. I'm worried that my package would be sent to the wrong address. If you could confirm with me in regards to the mailing address, and when I can set up the account online, that would be greatly appreciated! Thank you very much for your help!!!

Hi Kelly! Welcome to Compassion! We are so excited that you have chosen to love and support two boys through your sponsorship! It looks like both boys are on hold for you through the online system but your sponsorship has not been finalized yet. Normally, addresses outside of the US are entered manually to make sure that they are entered and printed correctly. This manual process could take a few days. However, if you would please email us at socialmedia@compassion.com with your correct mailing address, I will make sure that it is imputed correctly and send you instructions on setting up an online account (complete with your sponsor number when we have it).

Hi Susan, thanks for your quick reply and I have created an online account out of US( I am located in Beijing, China). Also, i have received a mail from compassion regarding the sponsorship. Then i tried to login my account to go next steps for sending some cards, but i could not sign in. So what can i do next. thanks for your help in advance.

Sophia, when you create an account from outside of the US, you actually have to wait for an email back from a Compassion representative who helped set up your account. There's a more involved process behind the scenes of creating online accounts for sponsors living outside of the United States. Once you see that email, you should be able to log in :).
