I feel as my sponsorship is too much of a financial burden for us currently and feel my sponsored child would benefit more from another sponser. Therefore I need to cancel my sponsorship.

Savannah, I am so sorry that you are having to make this difficult decision to cancel your sponsorship. With this being a financial concern, Compassion would be able to step in and cover your support for the months of January through  March. We can also remove the extra $7 commitment on your account going towards our HIV.AIDS fund. If that would help you continue, I can take care of setting that up immediately. Otherwise, please let me know if you still need to cancel and I will honor your request.

Savannah, I have processed the cancellation for your sponsorship of Enock. I see that you have written him a few times. Thank you for sending him a birthday card. I know that he will be grateful to receive it. You are welcome to send him a good bye letter as well if you would like to. If you would like to say good-bye, please write, "Final Letter," at the top of your letter and include your sponsor number and his child number. Please mail this letter to Compassion. If your financial situation improves and you are able to sponsor another child, we would be blessed to partner with you again. You might be interested in our correspondent program. We have correspondents that volunteer to write to children whose sponsors are able to support them financially, but aren't able to write to them. There is no cost to correspond with a child and it is still a great way to disciple to a child and make an impact in their life. Would you be interested in becoming a correspondent volunteer?

Hi Savannah! The correspondent role is a very important aspect of our ministry. We assign correspondents for sponsors who do not have the time or desire to write, and as soon as an opening becomes available, we can assign a child to you. At that time, we will send you an information packet for the child, as well as writing instructions. The requirement to be a correspondent is a commitment to write at least three times a year. In turn, you will receive three letters a year from the child. However, as you build a relationship with the child you may find you would like to write more often. The more letters you write the more you will receive from your child :). I would be happy to place you on our correspondent waiting list. Do you have any preferences (i.e. country, age, or gender). Please keep in mind that the more specific your preferences are, the longer you may have to wait to receive a correspondent child. I look forward to your reply!
