I, sadly, can no longer afford my sponsorship. I need to cancel my account... I have loved the last five years being Joseline's sponsor. :(

I am having financial difficulties this year and have fallen behind on my donations for Joseline. I can no longer afford my sponsorship for Joseline. I have loved being her sponsor for the last five years and will miss our correspondence. It makes me extremely sad to have to cancel and I hope another family will be willing to help her out. Please help Joseline have the best Christmas and 14th birthday! :(

Cynthia, I am so sorry that you have been going through financial difficulties :(. I certainly hope that is resolved for you very soon! I can certainly honor your request to cancel if needed, but I may have an offer that will help you be able to continue. Compassion would be able to cover the months that you've missed as well as December's donation. Starting in January, we can reduce your sponsorship rate to $19 per month through May. Please let me know if that would provide you with enough assistance or if you still need to cancel.

I, honestly, wish I could but there is no way that I can do that either. I will need to cancel... Is there a way for Joseline to get another sponsor fairly quickly? I want the very best for her and want to know that her family and her will be provided for.

Cynthia, I have processed the cancellation request for you. I appreciate your concern for Joseline and her family. There really is no way for me to know how quickly we will be able to find a new sponsor for Joseline. Please know that we will do our best. However, she will remain in the program and we will continue to provide for her needs through our unsponsored children's fund while we search for her new sponsor. I would encourage you to write her a good-bye letter and to keep her in prayer. You can mail your good-bye letter to:

Compassion International
Attention: Correspondence
Colorado Springs, CO 80997

Please write, "Final Letter," at the top of the letter along with your sponsor number and her child number. If your circumstances improve and you would like to sponsor with Compassion again, it would be a blessing for us to do so. Thank you for the last five years!
