Sarah, I'm so sorry to hear that you are facing financial struggles and need to cancel your sponsorship. Regrettably, I was unable to locate your account using your email address or name. Will you please provide either your sponsor number, child's number, or the email address associated with your account? Since your request is due to financial concerns, we may be able to help you. Compassion would be happy to cover your support for three months. Please let us know if this would help you or if you still need to cancel. I look forward to your reply!

Hello again, 
It is with a heavy heart that I have to cancel my sponsorship  for good this time. Unfortunately, my financial situation has not changed enough to continue supporting my child. This was a really hard decision because my child is so precious to me, and I pray that someone else will get the blessing of continuing to support him. I will continue praying for him, his family, and this whole organization. One day, when I have a steady income, I hope to sponsor another child once again. 
Thank you for your help and thanks to Compassion for all the good you do.

Katie, I am so sorry that you've had to make this decision. I can't imagine that has to be for you, but I have taken care of placing your child back up for sponsorship again. We would love to partner with you again in the future if you are able to!

Hello I need to cancel my sponsorship and if possible refunded the money that was automatically drawn out of my account. I hate to do this but right now I am not financially stable enough to provide this money every month. Whenever I have a steady flow of income and can sponsor again I for sure will!

Hi Joana, 
I am so sorry to hear that you need to cancel your sponsorship of Kithurshikka, but we certainly understand! I have taken care of canceling your sponsorship of this kiddo today. I have also placed a request to have your January contribution refunded back to you. Please allow a few days for this to be placed back into your account. 
If you ever feel led to sponsor again, please know we would be blessed to partner with you in the future!

Hi, I'm unable to find a way to cancel my sponsorship, but I'm going to need to. Is there something I have to do other than letting you know?

Peter, I am so sorry that you are in need of canceling your sponsorship :(. Please let us know if there is anything Compassion could have done to serve you better. If this is due to financial concerns, Compassion would be able to cover your support for the months of January through April and reduce your sponsorship rate to $19 per month for May through September. Please let me know if this would help or if you still need to cancel

Rachel, I am so sorry to hear that you've had to make the difficult decision to cancel your sponsorship. If this is due to a financial concern, Compassion would be able to help by covering your donations for the months of June through August and also reducing your sponsorship rate to $19 a month for September though January. Let me know if this would help or if we still need to cancel the sponsorship for you.

Hi Sarah,

Thank you for the offer; however, I am starting graduate school and moving out of state so I have new expenses for the next few years. I will be unable to sponsor as of now but hope to sponsor again in the future.

Rachel, as you requested, I have cancelled your sponsorship of Jordan at this time. Thank you so much for the past five years you have been sponsoring him! If you would like, you are able to send a final letter to Jordan. You would need to mail this letter into us with your sponsor number, his child number and the words Final Letter written at the top.

If you would like to sponsor another child in the future, we would be blessed to partner with you again. :)

Hi Cortnee, I am so sorry to hear that you are struggling financially and are no longer able to sponsor Enrique. I would love to keep you connected with him if at all possible. I would be happy to pause your monthly contribution for the months of June through August. Then beginning in September, I can reduce your monthly support for him to $19 for an additional three months. Your normal monthly contribution of $38 would not resume until December. Please let me know if this would help you or not.

Hello Leah, I do appreciate the willingness to help out but I’d feel more comfortable canceling my sponsorship all together. We are hoping to reevaluate our financial commitment to support next year.

Steven,  I am so sorry that you have been unemployed and need to cancel your sponsorship as well. Would it help if Compassion were to cover your donations for the months of July through September and also reduce your sponsorship rate to $19 a month for October through February? IF so, please let me know. Otherwise, let me know if I still need to cancel your sponsorship.

Hello, I need to cancel my sponsorship. We simply can't make it work financially right now and she deserves sponsors that can make more time for her. We will also decline the reduce payment option. Our sponsor number is 07485717.
