Needing help with sponsorship expenses for a few months

Hello!  I absolutely LOVE financially sponsoring my 11 children, and being a correspondent for 10 others.  Doing this is so important to my life!  However, I am going through some extremely bad financial struggles right now and am in a desperate situation.  I really don't want to lose my sponsored kids, but my monthly cost of sponsorship is $418 which is a significant amount of money for me at this time and I just don't think there is any way that I can pay that.  I have recently had to get 2 additional jobs just in order to attempt to cover my monthly bills, so I really cannot afford this additional $418 at this time.  I've heard that Compassion can cover your payments for 2-3 months while you get yourself back on your feet, and then you can resume your sponsorship without losing your sponsor kids.  Is this a possibility for me at this time?  It would be very helpful.  These kids mean so much to me, and I just don't want to lose them.  I want to sponsor them for years to come.  I am just hoping that you can help me out for a few months while I'm going through this difficult time.  And if this could possibly be taken care of before my payments are taken via automatic payment on the 20th, I would greatly appreciate it.  My sponsor number is:  #07300510.  Thank you so much!!!!

Hi Trina, 
I am so sorry to hear you are in tough situation financially! Please know that we truly value you as a sponsor and would be honored to help you out! I have covered the balance on your account, which covers five kiddos from October and your eleven kiddos for November. In addition, I have covered December for you as well. This means you will begin contributing again in January. If you feel you need additional help, please let us know! We hope this helps! :)
