How do I know I can trust Compassion and that the child I am sponsoring is real?

odd...are you taking a poll Shaina? A place to start would be Charity Navigator. Which has given Compassion the highest rating possible, for many years in a row now.
God Bless.

Ha! :) I've noticed a few people searching for this answer, so I thought I would add it to your community. No worries- I definitely plan on providing an "official" response but I LOVE hearing sponsor's responses to this question.

The child you sponsor is REAL!! In 2004 I went on a Compassion Tour to the Dominican Republic and met my 3 Compassion kids and toured several projects. I even got to go to Lisandra house and sat with her as she read her school book to me. I played with them during our outing to a very nice park with a pool...they went swimming.. My dream is to take another tour, it was a wonderful experience. Expensive but a trip of a life time!!

Just ask any sponsor. They will tell you how awesome Compassion is. And they will likely tell you about the wonderful lettters they get or the fun they have had with their sponsored children on a sponsor tour.
