Hello! I recently separated from he Army and I have been struggling with finding a part time job while I attend school so I can't afford my sponsorship anymore. My wife and I sponsor 2 other kids through a different program and the third is becoming too much for us. I would like to become a sponsor again once our finances become stable again. Thanks.

Aaron, first off, thank you so much for your service to our country! You definitely sound very busy and we don't want this to be a burden but a blessing to both you and your child. I have made Godwin available for another sponsor today and we certainly welcome you and your wife back in the future when you feel led to sponsor again. I pray God opens up employment for you soon and that you finish well in school! :)

Hello! As much as I hate to do it, I need to cancel my sponsership. I have been sponsoring the child since college. There's always ups and downs. I still managed to continue but now I really have financial difficulty. I moved overseas and now a stay home mom. I tried to continue my commitment but now we are struggling financially with just my husband salary. I can't keep up with the payment. I apologized I am behind (unpaid payment). I just can't afford it anymore. My child id is CO5270386. I appreciate your help.

On Yee Leung, I certainly understand if you're unable to continue. You've already made an incredible sacrifice to sponsor Cherlys as long as you have and we are so grateful for your long term commitment to her and the investment you've made in her life. It sounds like your life is very different now and I can imagine it's been quite the transition moving to another country and going down to one income. 

As requested, I made your girl available for another sponsor. I pray God blesses your family and the new life you're building overseas. I pray he provides for you and gives you hope and energy in the new season he's called you into. Thank you for your partnership for the past 12 years.

Hi Emily. I am so sorry you are going through a financial struggle, but I certainly understand. Before I put Sika up for sponsorship again, I may have  a few options to help you through this time and still allow you to sponsor Sika. Compassion is able to cover your monthly sponsorship for the months of February through April. We can also reduce your sponsorship to $19 a month from May through October if that would help you out as well. Please let me know if this option works for you. In the meantime, I have stopped the automatic withdrawal from your credit card.

Amy, I'm so sorry to hear that you've had to make this difficult decision. Especially after having built a relationship with your child over the last several years. Please know how much we appreciate the difference you've made so far in their life! 

We certainly understand if you need to cancel and we can help you with that. We value you so much as a sponsor and I did want to make sure you were aware of the options we have available for you in case your financial situation is short term. When sponsors are going through these seasons, Compassion is happy to help you out for a few months and we can even temporarily reduce your rate. 

Regrettably, I wasn't able to locate you in our system under your name or email address. Please post your child ID number or your sponsor number here and I'll look up your account. If you're interested in hearing about these options we have available, please let me know and we'll take a look at your account to see what we can do to help you maintain your relationship with your kiddo. If not, I'll make he/she available for another sponsor.

Hi Shelby! I'm so sorry to hear that you need to stop your sponsorship but I definitely understand starting a job for the first time and trying to adjust and get used to paying bills. I have stopped your donations and have made your boy available for another sponsor. If you ever feel led, you're always welcome to sponsor again with us in the future :). God bless you and good luck with your new job!

Hi Alorraine2012. I am so sorry that you need to end your sponsorship or postpone it for the next six months. I can cover your donations for Lucia through August at this time. I am only able to cover three months of donations in advance at a time. If you still need assistance after August, please let us know. We might be able to assist you with covering another three months at that time. Let me know if that would help you out  and I will take care of it for you.

Hi Sandra. I'm so sorry to hear that you are struggling financially and need to take a break from sponsoring. It is so stressful when there's not enough money to take care of everything. We value the difference you are making in Taliana's life and the relationship you're building, so we may be able to help you! We would be happy to take care of a few months' support for you. This would be a gift from Compassion, and you would not need to reimburse us. This means that we would take care of Taliana through October, and your support would resume in November.  If this option would help, please let me know and I would be happy to take care of this for you. If now, and you would like to make Taliana available for sponsorship, please reply with that instruction and your request will be honored. Thank you for heart to help children in need. God bless you!

Hi Heather! I'm sorry you haven't received a response to your email yet. The turn around time for emails to that queue is 48 hours, so that's why you may not have received a response by this afternoon. I am so sorry to hear you need to end your sponsorship though, and am happy to help you here if you would rather! If you feel more comfortable emailing, you can email me directly at socialmedia@compassion.com and I will answer you today.

Christina and Alexis, we are happy to help you both with whatever you need on your accounts. I know, Christina, you mentioned that this is due to financial issues. We do have some options that may be able to help if this is due to a short term financial difficulty. For example, we would be happy to cover your support for three months and then lower your support amount to $19 for six months if it would help you to keep the relationships you have with your children. Please let me know if these options would help. If not, please let me know and I will make your children available for other sponsors.

Hello. I'm also contacting compassion international to unfortunately cancel my sponsorship. I am a college student with an unreliable amount of income and I would rather my child be given a steady sponsorship. The sponsorship associated with my account is under juliewilson500@gmail.com. I would like this sponsorship to be canceled. I emailed customer service but have yet to receive a response, so I hope this helps. Thank you, Julie Wilson

Brian, I'm so sorry that you are no longer able to sponsor Joy Haldar. Per your request, I have canceled your sponsorship of Joy from your account. You should receive a confirmation letter in the mail within the next 1-2 weeks. Thank you so much for your support of Joy for the past 11 years and the impact you have had in her life :). You may write Joy a final letter if you'd like. If you would like to write her a goodbye letter, then please write "Final Letter" at the top of your correspondence. If you would like to sponsor another child again in the future, we would be blessed to partner with you :).

Flor, I am so sorry that you need to end your sponsorships for these two precious children :(. Before I put them back up for sponsorship, we may be able to assist you financially so that you can continue with them.  Compassion would be able to cover your donations for the months you missed as well as January through March. We can also reduce your sponsorship rate to $19 a month per child for April through September. In October, your donations would increase to $38 per child. If that would help, please let me know and I will take care or it right away.

If it would help either of you, Compassion would be able to cover your sponsorship donations for February through April and reduce your sponsorship rates to $19 a month from May through October.

If not, please let me know and I will place your child back up for sponsorship today.

Hi I need to cancel my sponsorship. I am a college students and after battling with my parents they have asked me to cancel it immediately. We have come to see our finances are not being managed well and thus we cannot make this commitment. As a college student I wish I could pay on my own, but I cannot sadly. So if you could please cancel it that would be helpful, although sad.

Hi Johnathan! I definitely understand how tight finances are when you're in college, and I'm happy to help! First, I would like to make sure that I have located the correct account for you. Are you sponsoring Abdoul from Burkina Faso? If so, I am happy to take care of his sponsorship for the months of February through April, and then you may resume your sponsorship in May. Please let me know if this will help, and I'll be happy to take care of this for you :).

Hi there, I have been supporting my sponsor child Deedy for quite a while now and have recently moved into my own unit and am completing my uni degree. Money is extremely tight for a student and I do not think I can support my child any longer. I tried to budget it in last year but it didn't quite work out for me. I think it would be wise for me to step down from this commitment. I am sad to be doing this, but I feel this what I need to do. :(
Thank you.

Hello. I have been sponsoring my sweet girl Eden (ET061200223) for about two years now and am so happy to have helped her in any way that I have been able to. Unfortunately, however, with college and my financial situation, it is becoming very difficult for me to keep this up and I am going to have to cancel my sponsorship. I very much hope that Eden is quickly picked up by another sponsor as she is a wonderful, sweet girl with big dreams. Thank you for your help.

Financial struggles are very stressful, and school is not cheap! Please know that the two years you have given Eden your love and support have had a positive impact in her life :). Thank you so much for all that you have done, and if you would like to sponsor again with us in the future, we would be blessed to partner with you. Per your request, I have canceled your sponsorship and make Eden available once again. Please rest assured that we will do our best to find another loving sponsor for sweet Eden as soon as possible :). You are also welcome to write Eden a final letter to say goodbye if you'd like. Please make sure to write "Final Letter" across the top of your letter along with your child's name and number. Have a blessed day!

Hello,

Unfortunately I am unable to continue to sponsor Micael (BR046100388) due to finances. Because I’m in school right now money is/ will be extremely tight for the next few years. As much as I loved supporting him, it is no longer realistic. I would rather give someone else the opportunity to sponsor him. Thanks!

I've recently received word that Compassion will no longer be able to support centers in India and my sponsored child won't be supported. I don't want to be assigned a new child now and I'd like to make sure that my sponsorship is cancelled (my sponsor number is 01481717) and my payment methods are deleted from my account. Could you let me know if there's something specific I need to do? Thanks!

@Sarah - I really wish that would work for me. I deeply care about both of those children. I am currently on a budget that came a little too late for me to accept that offer right now, it'll take me a few years to be back in a place that I have financial margin for that.

For example, we would be happy to cover three months for you and lower your support amount to $19 for six months. Please let me know if this would help in either of your specific situations. If not, let me know and I will make your children available for other sponsors.

How do I go about canceling my sponsorship? I am a college student and my financial situation has been extremely difficult lately and I just can't afford to sponsor a child anymore. I also haven't had any communication from my child since March of last year which is disappointing and I never got pictures or a letter after I sent her a birthday gift last August.

Leah, I am so sorry to hear that you  have gone so incredibly long without a  letter from your child. It is not normal to go even six months without a letter. I can understand that it must be difficult to make the sacrifices to continue your sponsorship as a college student when you are not getting any letters or building a relationship. I sincerely apologize as well that you did not receive a thank you letter for the birthday gift. I just sent an inquiry to our field office to check on your child, make sure everything is alright, and request a letter as soon as possible. I also stopped your automatic withdrawal and adjusted the next three months as a courtesy because this is due to our error. You should be receiving letters and hear what your child was able to do with the generous gifts that you had sent. I would like to ask that if possible we could keep the sponsorship until we hear back from our field office in Haiti with a thank you letter and photo. Once that has been done, please let us know if you are willing and able to continue the support. I just want to make sure that you at least receive the thank you letter that you are entitled to receive.

Hey, I am contacting you in regards of my sponsorship. I have absolutely loved sponsoring my little girl for these 2 years. However I know it's time to let her go, I know she will find a family that can afford to give her so much more than I can right now. She will forever be prayed for by me and I know God will bless her with so much these next few years. She is a beautiful bright young girl and I wish her all the blessings in the world. I just want so much better for her. Maybe in the next few years I will be able to sponsor again. However I know this is what I need to do for her. Thank you so much. Can you please cancel my sponsorship?

Hi Shawn, I am so very sorry to hear that you and your wife are going through tough financial times! I see that you have been sponsoring Khusnul since 2013! That is fantastic! Because we value you as sponsors, we would be happy to cover your sponsorship for the next three months and then for the following three months we would be happy to reduce your rate of sponsorship to $19 a month, if you feel this would be helpful. Otherwise, we will be happy to fulfill your request to cancel. Thank you in advance for getting back with us!

Hello! I recently signed up to sponsor a child this past Friday night at a for King and Country concert through the Compassion representatives there. I am a college student, and because of further discussion I have had with my parents (who are providing for me at this time), I won't be able to sponsor this child. I'm not sure that my information is in the system yet, so I'm not really sure how to cancel my sponsorship.
I hope to come back to Compassion in the future when I am able to make the payments.
Thanks for all you do!

Hi Bailey! I certainly understand that this might not be a good time for you to sponsor while you're in college and although you're not going to be able to go forward with this, we are so grateful for your heart for children! You are always welcome to sponsor with us when you get out of college and feel like you have the means to do this. 

We don't have an account setup for you yet as it can take up to four weeks to complete this process when you sign up to sponsor at an event. So that I can manually take care of this for you, what is your child's ID number and name?

Hi Bailey:

When I first heard about Compassion, I was still in high school. I wanted to sponsor someone, but knew it wouldn't make sense until I finished high school and university. 15 years later, the time was finally right and I was able to select my first girl! Now I have a few, and I'm having the time of my life with this. It is so hard to be patient, but hold that thought -- your time will come!

Emily, I was just charged the $38 for the first donation. I'm not sure if there's anything I can do to get a refund (money for my family is really tight right now). I also looked up my account and it still shows that I am signed up to sponsor him.

Bailey, I'm so sorry that a donation still withdrew. There was miscommunication when I requested that this child not be linked to an account for you and the note was not seen. For this reason, the child was still linked when we received your information from the concert. 

I deeply apologize for this and I have manually removed Ej from your account today and made him available for another sponsor. I've stopped your automatic withdrawal and also requested that the $38 donation be refunded back into your account.

Eleanor, I'm so sorry to hear that you are no longer able to support Daleska, Jennifer, Novita, and Senita. Would it help you if Compassion covers three months of support for these kiddos and then reduce the rate to $19 per child per month after that for six months? Please let me know if this temporary option would help or not and I will certainly honor your request.

I am so sorry to hear that you are thinking of canceling your sponsorship of Tian, but we do understand. If you feel it would be helpful, we would be happy to cover 3 months of sponsorship for you, to allow you a small break from sponsorship. If you feel this would be a good option, please let us know and I will be happy to cover the months of August through October. If not, I will be happy to fulfill your wish to cancel. I look forward to your response.

Good luck in school and know you're always welcome to sponsor again with us at a later time when you're ready :). God bless you!

Melody, my heart goes out to your family and I'm so sorry you're struggling right now. We value you so much and appreciate the five years that you have faithfully committed to loving and encouraging sweet David and Jayanto. 

I apologize as I don't know what your exact situation looks like, but if at all possible, we want to help you out in any way that we can. Would it help if we covered your support through the end of January? Starting in February, we could reduce your rate to $19 per month per child for up to six months also. If that is still a bit too much, although I know this would be difficult, we could even go down to just one child so that you're at least able to maintain a relationship with one of these boys.

Let me know if any or all of these options would help your family right now. If not, I will make them available for another sponsor. In the meantime, I've stopped your automatic contributions until we hear back from you.

I'm very sorry, but for the conceveable future, my husband and I need to cancel our sponsorship. We love your organization and we love our little girl and her family, and will definitely continue to pray for her daily, but we are no longer able to continue with sponsoring her. We've been struggling for about a year to make the payments on it, as well as everything else in life, and will soon find ourselves without a home.
I wish you all the best, and hope to join up again at a later date.

Charity, my heart goes out to you and your husband right now. I cannot imagine what you're feeling as this season sounds like a big shift financially for you. Thank you for your sacrifice in trying to maintain your relationship with Insos as long as you could. I have made him available for another sponsor today. I pray that God would provide for you and show you His love and faithfulness in this difficult time. You're always welcome to come back with us again but we definitely look forward to you and your husband being back on your feet and your situation improving. God bless you.

Ashlee, if you need to discontinue your sponsorship, we can definitely help you. I'm so saddened to hear that you're going through a hard time financially and have had to make this difficult decision. We are so grateful for your desire to help children and I know this must have been tough :(. 

I have stopped your automatic withdrawal today but before I completely cancel your account, I wanted to make you aware of options we have available in case this is just a short term situation. 

Would it help you if we just removed your extra giving to the Partners of Compassion Fund and went down to only sponsoring one child? This would decrease your monthly rate. We would also be willing to cover your support for three months and if needed, after that we can reduce your rate temporarily to $19 per month for up to six months. 

Let me know if any or all of these options would help you out. If not, I understand and can make your children available for another sponsor.

Hi, we have sponsored Stephanni for a year now, but due to health/medical costs and recent loss of employment, we cannot afford to continue to support her. It breaks my heart, but our financial situation will not be changing any time soon and she deserves a sponsor who can pay, on time, every month. Can you take care of this for us?

David, I'm sorry to hear that you are going through such a hard time. It sounds like you have been through quit a lot lately. I just said a prayer for you that God will give you and your family comfort and peace in the midst of this storm and that your circumstances would improve quickly.

Compassion has an option for sponsors who are going through short-term financial difficulties to try to help them maintain their relationship with their sponsored child. They would be willing cover your support for 3 months and then reduce your rate to $19 for up to six months. My hope is that this might allow you to continue sponsoring your girl, however, I completely understand if you still feel you need to cancel at this time. The ladies at Compassion who monitor this forum will be back on Monday and they will be able to assist you. God bless.

David, it sounds like you have so much going on right now and are really in a tough place. I'm so sorry to hear that you're family is going through such a difficult time and like Adam, we pray that your situation improves quickly and God opens up doors for your family and comforts you during this time. 

I certainly understand if right now is not the best time for you to sponsor Stephanni. We're so grateful for your sacrifice and for sticking with her as long as you were able. If the options that Adam mentioned to you would help, please let us know as we care deeply for you and your relationship with her and want to help where we can. But if not, we don't want this to be a burden on you and understand if you need to discontinue. 

Regrettably, I was unable to locate your account by your name and email address. But if you're able to post your child's ID number or your sponsor number, that will help me locate your account and I can process your request depending on how you feel led to go forward. 

God bless you, David!

My husband just lost his job so unfortunately we will only have my paychecks to live on which isn't very much. We have 2 kids of our own and I have to make sure they are taken care of first. I'm not sure how to end my sponsorship so if someone could help me, I would greatly appreciate it. I'm very saddened by this but we were barely making ends meet before.

Becky, I am so sorry to hear that your husband lost his job. I know this can bring some strain to a family so I am praying for peace and provision for you and your family in this time. We do have some options that may be able to help if you need a little assistance until you and your family can get back on your feet again. For example, we would be happy to cover your support for three months until after the Holidays. Then starting in February we could lower your support amount to just $19 for six months. Please let me know if this would help. If not, let me know and I will make Fedrick available for another sponsor.

I am sponsoring Redeit Tomas in Ethiopia. If you are able to help me for that time frame, I would greatly appreciate it. I do not want to give up this relationship with Redeit! So three months to get my family back in order would be a big help. I believe my account is under a different e-mail address: Becky.pfaff@yahoo.com

Just want to be sure you are fixing the right account!

Hi Becky! I'm sorry that we had the incorrect account up; your name is just popular in our system :). I found your account with Rediet and updated it so that his support is current through the end of January. Come February, if your situation hasn't yet improved, let us know and we're happy to help and possibly reduce your rate if you think that will be of assistance in your circumstances at that point. 

I'm so glad we're able to help you maintain your relationship with him and I pray that God provides for your family during this difficult time and gives you peace and rest as you job hunt. I also pray that your husband finds a job here very soon and has favor with his future employers! 

I would also encourage you to remove your email address if you don't want it to be seen as this is a public forum :).

I have a suggestion for those who are out of work or not making enough money on the jobs they have now.Pizza delivery or waiting tables at a restaurant.For now I only have the pizza delivery job and it is sufficient.You'll have cash every day or night you work. I work with a driver who has a job in IT. For now he works that job full time and still keeps the delivery job two nights a week. He has been laid off work twice in the past year and it's a good thing he can continue this job on a part time basis.

I've been working my job full time and kind of looking for another job part/full time.Nothing yet.Something else is out there for us all.When I go this job I had another full time job that I later quit because it wasn't for me.Something better for all of us when the time comes.

Hi Emily,

I think the options are great, but for the foreseeable future, I'm not sure we can continue. We already cut unnecessary expenses (TV, gym membership, etc.) and it's still tight. I understand Williams suggestion for a part-time job, but they don't just come because you apply. Here is our sponsor number: 3545833

Thank you for helping me.

I'm sorry we weren't able to help you continue but I pray your situation improves quickly and I've made them available for another sponsor, today.

I also noticed your profile picture. I'm not sure what this specific situation looks like but I am praying for your loved one as I know it can be difficult to have someone you care so deeply about to be struggling with their health. But we serve a God who heals! So I pray for full heath and recovery and comfort for your family. God bless you!

I just signed up last night. As much as I would love to be a sponsor, I need more time to consider it. Please cancel my sponsorship before my child learns she has a sponsor. I don't want to start sponsoring only to stop shortly after and give that false sense of hope. After spending more time in prayer and consideration, I will start a sponsorship again in the future if I am able. Thank you!
ps-I love the child I have signed up to sponsor. Ideally, I would love her to be "held" for me. But I know that isn't always realistic. =)

Hi Emilee! I definitely understand if you need more time to consider sponsorship or if now is just not a good time for you to support a child. We are so incredibly grateful for your heart and you're always welcome to sponsor a child with us again if you ever decide to in the future. 

Regrettably, I cannot hold her for you long term because our goal is to find these children sponsors as quickly as possible. However, I have placed her on hold for you for two weeks. If you decide in the next couple of weeks that this is something you would like to go forward with, let us know. If not, we'll make her available for another sponsor and you can always continue to keep her in your prayers if you wish as prayer is powerful! God bless you and I pray that God leads you and guides you:).

Would you mind holding her for two weeks? (as well as the initial payment I made)I will contact you within two weeks with a final yes or no.

If you already made her available that is okay.

THANKS A MILLION!

No problem, Emilee! Trust me, I completely understand that your heart is conflicted. I have put her on hold and after you've prayed about it, let us know what you decide.

I deeply appreciate all of your help. However, I do - sadly- need to ask you to remove the hold. It is only because of my current financial situation. If I ever decide to sponsor, I will definitely keep Compassion in mind! Thanks again.

Emilee, I am so sorry as I saw your comment the other day and removed the hold on her and made her available for sponsorship. I just forgot to come back on here and let you know it had been taken care of. We will find her a sponsor as quickly as possible and you're always welcome back as a sponsor again if you ever feel led to do so :). God bless!

Even with your available options, I regret that I need to cancel my sponsorship for personal financial reason. I will continue to pray for my child and hope that a new sponsor can be found soon. Thank you.

Jessica, I'm so sorry that your situation is forcing you into this difficult decision and that our options cannot help you out. I pray that your circumstances improve quickly and we are so grateful for all you've done to bless Laura and for hanging in there with her for this long. As requested, I have made her available for another sponsor today. God bless you and know that you're always welcome to sponsor with us again at any time.

I hate to do this, but I need to stop the sponsorship for Migdalia. Money is going to be tight for quite a while. Also, I really don't want to lose Lady Lyn either, but I am afraid it may come to that in the near future. All I can really afford right now is to keep supporting Katherin. Is there anything that can be done? 3132343

Trevor, I'm sorry to hear that you're going through these financial struggles right now. I know how stressful things can be when money is tight. I'm not exactly sure what your situation is like but I pray that God will provide for all of your needs and give you peace during this difficult time. Compassion does have some options available for sponsors facing short-term financial difficulties. They are willing to cover your support for three months and the reduce your rate to $19 for up to six months to help take some of the burden off while you get back on your feet. Please let the Compassion staff know if you think this would help you in your situation. If not please let them know and they will be able to assist you with making Migdalia available to another sponsor. Thank you so much for everything you've done and continue to do for children in need, even in these difficult circumstances. God bless you, and I hope that your situation improves very soon.

Trevor, I'm so sorry that things are not ideal right now :(. We definitely want to help you in any way that we can like Adam mentioned. So that you have a few months to figure out your financial situation and get back on your feet, I have updated your account so that the support for all three of your children is paid for three months by us. Don't worry about support for any of them for the next three months. Lady Lyn and Migdalia are current now through the end of January and Katherin is current through the end of February now. We can re evaluate your situation after this point and my prayer is that your situation will have improved. If not, we can continue to work with you and figure out what the best options would be for you and your children :).

We value you, Trevor and are happy to help you out! I pray that God helps you to get back on your feet during this time. He's such a good Father and loves to provide for his children. Keep your chin up and thank you for your sacrifice and love for your kiddos!

Hello friends at Compassion. It is with a heavy heart that I am letting you know I am no longer able to continue my sponsorship. As our family's financial stability has recently changed, we have been put in the difficult position to reconsider all monetary obligations, commitments, and donations that we incur each month. Unfortunately, we have to cancel our sponsorship and put the monthly donation to our family's own needs in order to make ends meet. Can you please tell me what I need to do in order to terminate our monthly commitment with Compassion? Thank you.

Laury, I just said a prayer for you and your family. The ladies at Compassion who manage this community will be able to assist you tomorrow. I'm very sorry to hear that you are experiencing difficulties financially and now you are having to make this difficult decision on top of everything else. Thank you for being a blessing to your child for as long as you have. I just wanted to let you know that Compassion is willing to help sponsors who are going through financial struggles try to maintain their relationship with their sponsored child. They could cover your support for you for three months and then reduce your rate to $19 for up to six months if you think your situation might be short-term. Please let these ladies know if you think this would help or not and they will be able to assist you with whichever decision that you need to make at this time.

Good morning, Laury! It sounds like this was a really difficult decision for you and I'm so very sorry that your family is struggling :(. My heart goes out to you as I know that can be tough but God cares so deeply for you and your family's situation. I pray that He would provide for you during this time and give you peace.

It sounds like you not only had to reconsider your sponsorship but also other areas in your finances as well. After reviewing your account, I have went ahead and made your kiddo available for another sponsor today. Dawensky was so blessed by you and we truly appreciate your heart to want to sponsor him. Please know that your always welcome to sponsor again with us when you get back on your feet. But we certainly want you to take care of your family.

Susan or Emily, I had called before to ask if I could pay Mishels sponsorship payment last Friday but we had to replace tires on our car, is there a way I can pay all my past due $76 in 2 weeks on December 4th?

Hi Jennifer! It looks like you chatted with us a few weeks ago and had just said that you would call back to make the donation on the 20th. No donations have been put through yet. This means that whenever you can make the donation is just fine. :) Would you like me to setup a $76 donation to pull December 4th so you don't have to contact us again?

This reply was created from a merged topic originally titled No longer able to support my two children.

I find it necessary to cease supporting my two children, Heyner and Raquel. I have lost my full time job and no longer have a steady income. I do not know when I will be able to pick back up supporting 1 or more, and I want to be sure Raquel and Heyner are supported.

Larry, I understand that it is uncertain when you loose your job. I will be praying for peace and provision for you during this transition. It looks like you had chatted right before posting this comment and we had offered you some assistance but I am going to honor your request. I have made Heyner and Raquel available for other sponsors. Please let me know if I may be of any further assistance.

I Owasso! We certainly understand and we had seen your other post and offered to help you out for a time. I'm sorry if you didn't see that response but it sounds like your situation might be more long term. As requested, I have made Zephania available for another sponsor today. Thank you so much for the difference you made in his life! You're welcome to sponsor again with us if you ever feel led in the future :).

Hello! I recently signed up to sponsor a child at a conference through the Compassion representatives there. I am a college student, and because of further discussion I have had with my parents (who are providing for me at this time), I won't be able to sponsor this child at the moment. I hope to come back to Compassion in the future when I am able to make the payments. My sponsor #07641940

Hi Jacqueline, 
I am very sorry to hear that you will not be able to sponsor Pablo, however, we do understand. I have removed him from your account, as of today. We do pray that God leads you back to Compassion in the future, and we would be blessed to partner with you again. Good luck in school! :)

I started sponsoring my child back in January of 2017. Recently, the company I worked filed bankruptcy and I lost my job. I'm not in a place financially to keep sending in my monthly payment. Sponsoring through compassion has been an incredible experience and I'm so thankful. However, I would like to know if you guys offer any other solution or could tell me how to cancel my sponsorship until I'm able to start work again to afford the monthly payment. Thanks so much.

Ashley, I am so sorry to hear that you lost your job. :( I am praying that you are able to find another job soon. If it would help you in this difficult time, we would be happy to cover three months of support for you. Then, you could just let us know how you are doing after the three months and we could go from there. Please let us know if that would help you in your situation. Also, I was regrettably unable to locate your account from your name and email address. Please post your sponsor number or your child's number so that we can further assist you.

hello, i would like to cancel my sponsorship permanently. I hope this has been a blessing to Maick (HO-223-0659), but i made the commitment for only one year and am now moving onto other ministries. I sincerely hope another sponsor picks him up and shares with him God's Love.

Thank you for this opprotunity,
Keith (07178950)

Keith, I am so sorry that you cannot continue with Maick, but thank you so much for blessing his life over the past year. I have cancelled your sponsorship as of this morning.
