We received our first letter! Exciting, right?! Well it was until I noticed the date was for 27/11-2018. We didn’t sign up until March this year(2019). So what’s the deal?

Sadly, after one year this month we stopped our membership due to reasons like this. I have also followed this site and the doubts were not rise but were confirmed. So sad.

What do you mean? You had a reply that was dated before you even signed up, a YEAR later?!? That’s kinda odd!

No, after a year of contributing we’ve decided to stop. I only received on photo and no acknowledgments of Christmas or birthday gifts.

The first letters from the children are pre-written before the children are even sponsored. This makes the process faster and more efficient once the child does get sponsored.

Kailea g & Lori, I am a sponsor, not an employee. What Missy said was told to me when I first sponsored. I was told that the child has a letter already written and it would be sent out right away. I had some of the same doubts after dealing with another organization. I do know that God was telling me to sponsor. I decided that I would make a visit soon after I started to sponsor again. "Just to get the real story". I can tell you both that this is the real deal. Real kids, real projects, real changes in the child's life. I have received letters back after the visit and I know that it is from the child. One was sort of short, choppy, simple. The other was full of details, because he was excited to tell me about something he achieved.  Lori, sorry that you decided to stop you sponsorship, I hope that you will look pass the little things and sponsor again one day. No, things are not perfect, I would be suspect if it were.
