Hey there!
I was checking my blogs this morning, and I read this one by Mary Faith http://newplan15.blogspot.com/2012/02... It says that you were/are looking for 150 correspondents for your newly sponsored children. Is this usual? I know that Compassion only allows 3 correspondent children to one sponsor. But, if you are in need of a correspondent sponsor, I am always available and willing. Anyway, I was just curious :)

Hey Lizzie - no, it's not something that typically happens. It was one-time urgent need on Friday. Here's what happened: An incredibly generous business sponsored 150 new children, and asked that we find correspondents (someone who will write only) for each of those newly sponsored children. Our wait-list for correspondents was actaully quite low and we received word that it would likely be several months before we could find correspondents for that many children, so we posted a plea on Facebook and Twitter for correspondents (waiving the 3 child limit for Friday only). In just 2 hours, we had enough responses to fill the request for all 150 children! The response was AMAZING and so appreciated! It was a tremendous success and now these children will start receiving letters immediately instead of having to wait for several more months!
