My church youth group sponsored a child but can not keep up the payments. I have agreed to take over this for them. The account has been edited to reflect my information but the sponsor name should be changed to my name instead of the original sponsor. How can I do this. The original name was Christian Lightfoot, #07769323.

Hi Phyllis! For tax purposes, we won't be able to simply change the name on the account from Christian's to yours. We would need to create a completely new account, but we would also need to confirm this change with Christian before moving the child to an account in your name. Please have Christian email us at socialmedia@compassion.com in order to confirm. Thank you!
