I recently sponsored a child at the Walk for Compassion. I'm new to this. How do I add him to this site and link it to a credit card - to ensure funds go to the right area?

Hi Denise! I'm another sponsor like you. Someone from Compassion can tell you if your sponsorship has been set up after the weekend's over. It can take a few weeks for those forms from events like this to get back to Compassion and then they need to manually enter all the sponsorships into their system. Once your form has gone through this process they mail you a packet with your sponsor number which allows you to set up an online account. Someone from Compassion can look and see if you've been given a sponsor number yet after the weekend.
Blessings, Kristen

Hi Denise! I see that we have your account created (supporter ID 07576223) and we have the child pending on your account. If you would like, you can call us to make your first contribution (800-336-7676)  or you can go to www.compassion.com/firstpayment to make that first contribution.
