I was very upset to receive a letter thanking me for sponsoring another child. I DID NOT accept sponsoring another child and am even more upset that you have already deducted the funds from my account. For these reasons, I want to cancel ALL of my sponsorship. I do not appreciate the fraudulent manner you have conducted your business.

It is the heart of every single sponsor to see everyone single child or young adult sponsored so they had to come up with a game plan for this to become a reality I am sorry that you are upset and you are entitled to your opinion but is this a way God or Jesus would conduct Himself I think business like calling a organization fraudulent should be conducted not on this public forum and we should have respect for Compassion and everyone who works at Compassion remember WWJD
And Love others Like Jesus Does

Stephen, WWJD? Jesus cleared the temple of unscrupulous businessmen. I am a Christian who works in the business world. What I experienced and described is fraudulent behavior and has evidently been experienced by many others. I have sponsored two children for over 10 years,so do not begin to tell me about the sponsor's heart for children. It is my desire to make others aware of what is really going on at Compassion International. Game plan? The game plan is to follow the initial rules set prior to joining as a sponsor.

I know what you mean but I asked the same thing and they said it is because everyone wants to see everyone sponsored and not left behind

Game plan or no game plan did you alert them when you got the packet to tell them that you did not want to sponsor another child and what was there reply to you you have 14 days to reply to them and let them know you don't want to sponsor another child and it could been your child moved or could have left the program or did go to school that much and was asked to Leave the program

Stephen, WWJD? Jesus cleared the temple of unscrupulous businessmen. I am a Christian who works in the business world. What I experienced and described is fraudulent behavior and has evidently been experienced by many others. This behavior would not be tolerated in what you described as reality, trust me. I have sponsored two children for over 10 years,so do not begin to tell me about the sponsor's heart for children. It is my desire to make others aware of what is really going on at Compassion International. Game plan? The game plan is to follow the initial rules set prior to joining as a sponsor. It is not the "plan" to charge ones account without permission. Please mind your own business unless, as it seems, you are a part of the organization.

I always get a packet when they want me to sponsor a new child I am sorry that they have not performed at a 100% and make sure you got a packet and given you the 14 days allowed to decide to sponsor or not sponsor this child or not I hope this will not happen again and and that they will do their best to alert sponsors so they can pray and ask God for Guidance about if they should sponsor the child or should pass

Hi Diane,  I am very sorry for the misunderstanding here and the confusion and frustration that this caused. I will close your account with us today.  I am so sorry that our communications regarding your Guatemalan child who recently left the program, and another child to consider for sponsorship did not reach you. I see that we left a message for you on June 9 and sent a letter on June 20 explaining what was happening. I do apologize if either of those were unclear or if they did not reach you. We want to honor your wishes for how you sponsor with Compassion, and I am sorry that we let you down here. I am not seeing that we deducted anything from your bank account for this child, though. The last contribution pulled on 7/5/2017 was for your child in Indonesia and for the Partners of Compassion fund. If your bank statement is showing something different than this $45 contribution on 7/5/2017, please call us so that we can look into those charges further. Have a blessed day, Diane.
