I've just picked another kid to sponsor, because he's been waiting a while and looks so precious. My problem is that my current contribution is pulled on the 10th day of the month, and right now, it's the end of the month when money is short - but I don't want to wait and possibly lose the chance to sponsor this boy. Is it possible for my sponsorship with him to begin Jan. 1, 2017 with the debit from my card on the 10th along with my other one?

Hi Mark! Can you email me at socialmedia@compassion.com with this child's ID number? I'd like to take a look at his information and get you set up for this if possible. Was he online? If he is online, it will pull a donation out immediately when you sponsor him there. I don't want that to happen, so I need to pull him off the internet in order to get him on your account. Thank you so much!

Hi Sarah, I got your reply above in my email and have replied to it with the boy's ID#. In the meantime I've also heard from compassion in regard to an In-System email I sent them as well. Their solution wasn't logistically viable for me and things are beginning to get complicated. I had the kid's biography tab up yesterday and then it was replaced with an advisory: "Thank you! But this child is in the process of being sponsored by someone else! Then today, after receiving your email, I searched for him again and he, along with his info, was back! In their email to me Compassion.com wrote that as long as I have his Bio tab open he isn't visible to general viewing. And now, after having that Bio tab open for a few hours, I'm getting that same message as yesterday saying that "he's been sponsored by someone else". Help me please :)

Hi Mark! I have actually already pulled Pat off of the website and will be placing him on your account very soon :)! It's showing you that message right now because I pulled him off. I'll email you as soon as he is on your account!
