I would like to share an idea for the website that Advocates can do to share a Child Packet.

I would like to pass along  an idea that could help Advocates share a child packet with someone else.

When I get a Release 3 packet or a child packet from another source, it would be great to have some options, other than a printed packet, that would help us share that child with other people easier.  For example, it would be great to be able to get a PDF of the packet, a high-resolution JPG of the Child, and/or a direct link that would enable a new sponsor to enter their information and sponsor that child.  It would be great to have a link within the PDF as well.

It would be great to be able to get a JPG of a child that I am advocating for to share on Twitter, Facebook, Instagram, etc..  Then if someone is interested, I could send the potential sponsor the packet in a PDF (which contains a link to sponsor that child), so they can read all of the information about that child, and sponsor the child, if they choose to.

Ideally it would be nice if I could go the Compassion website and request a PDF of the packet and a JPG of the child and have it emailed to me for sharing.

When I share sponsorship opportunities on Social Media, people are understandably hesitant about giving me their billing information.  Also, I have found when I do a Pay Later for them and Compassion mails them their Welcome Packet, they are slow about sending back the payment information.  Whereas, I think if people had everything in an email or on a Social Media post, they may tend to take care of it quicker.

It would also be great, if I could get an email letting me know that the Child I was advocating for was sponsored.

Just some thoughts.
