Hi Meredith, 
We would be honored to help you out for a few months! I have covered the months of September through November for you. If you feel like you may need any additional help in the coming months, please feel free to reach out to us and we can see what we can do! :)

Hi Shannon,

The September payment just came through my account so I just wanted to double check about September through November being covered.  I didn't account for the September money to be in my account and it actually overdrew it so I just need to be sure about the next couple of months.

Hi Meredith, I am so sorry about the contribution processing from your bank account for September. The contribution was set to pull automatically on the 11th of each month, which is the same day that we processed this request. We wouldn't have been able to stop that from pulling, but we should have let you known, so I apologize for that. For future reference, we would need three business days to stop the automatic withdrawal from your checking account. Would you like me to request to have the $38 refunded to your account for you? I can confirm that the contributions will not pull in the following months. Just to clarify, if you would like me to have the refund processed, your contributions will be covered for the months of September through November and resume pulling on, December 11, 2018. If you do not want the refund processed, your contributions will be covered for the months of October through December and resume pulling on, January 11, 2018. Let me know what would be best for you.

I also would like to see if I have any donor months left? I think I’ve got November covered but October has been rough...

Samantha, I hope the job transition goes smoothly for you! I will be praying for you during this time! I can go ahead and cover your support through the end of 2018, which I have taken care of today. Your next donation will not be needed until January.

I'm in college and money is really tight right now. I also don't feel like I have been very active in my child's life. It has been more of another bill rather than some one I pray for and interact with. I feel like I should take some time away from my sponsorship for a while? Can I do this?

I am in a similar situation. I am recently financially independent and my sponsorship is affecting my ability to make rent and pay utilities. Is there something I can do?

Hi! I am in the same situation.  I owe for September and October due to a new debit card and the old one not working.  I am overwhelmed trying to pay all of that and going forward.  I need to cancel my sponsorship.  The child we signed up to sponsor prayerfully withdrew from the program.  We were reassigned another child automatically.  It is a great program, but at this time, we need the money for other needs close to our heart locally.  Thank you for your help.

I too am full time in school and just had to go part time at work. Bills are getting unbearable, is it possible to have my account placed on hold? My October payment has already come out but if we could hold it for awhile that would help me tremendously!
Thank you!

I also need to cancel my sponsorships for the same reasons... financial hardship. As soon as I am out of debt, I plan on signing back up to sponsor. How do I cancel my sponsorships?

Hi! I am looking for an sponsors who can help me with my little charity that I started turning 3 years now. I am donating school supplies for children ages 6- 12 years old.  This Christmas, I hope to gather donations as a gift from them, they are 80 children. If you have your stuff like toys, clothes, shoes etc..even they are already used , that is a big help and can make them smile.  Hope anyone here can help me. Thank you in advance and God bless.

Hi Sharon, 

What a wonderful way to help others! Thank you for your generous heart to help others! Please know that Compassion itself will not be able to donate, as the funds we receive are for specific children in our program, but we will definitely keep you and your ministry in our prayers! God bless you in all that you do!
