Does anyone have any recommendation of ways to connect with other sponsor (Compassion sponsors and / or sponsors from other organizations)?  Are there any online communities / groups / forums where you can connect, share experiences / ideas? I've been a sponsor for several years now and looking for ways to connect with other sponsors, similar to the old 'Our Compassion' site which was discontinued.  Is there still a Letter writing club on the Second Friday of every month like there used to be? Any suggestions would be helpful.

Hi, Carla, there are several groups on Facebook. My favorite is Compassion Correspondents. This group is administrated by several Social Media ladies, who work for Compassion. Group members share about their letters, trips to visit their sponsored children, Compassion events, and sometimes personal prayer requests. You can also ask questions to other sponsors or the administrators. It’s a great group— very informative and friendly!

Shawna, when we send an invite to the private group via email, I believe you will only receive an email. I encourage you to check your email and also make sure it didn't go to spam/junk. I'm sorry for any inconvenience this may cause.
