Are we allowed to share photos of our sponsored children online, such as on our Facebook walls or personal blogs to help "advertise" Compassion, or is this only allowed for the Compassion bloggers? I couldn't find any info about it one way or the other.

Great question, Brett! We actually do not currenty have a policy on where a child's photo can and cannot be used. We ask our sponsors to use their best judgement in sharing their child's photo in order to keep the best interest of the child in mind. One thing to consider is, "Would my child's mother/father be proud if they saw the child's picture here." Also, please keep the child's information and privacy in mind when sharing photos and informaiton about your child. Again asking the "Would my child's parents be proud they knew that I shared this informaiton" is a good guide.

I just signed up to sponsor a little girl! Is it appropriate/allowed to share a photo of the girl in my Facebook post?

Can I put a picture up of the child I am going to sponsor on my facebook wall or add her to family photos on my facebook?

Can I ask my children and granchildren to write Loren or is that not acceptable?

It's normally best to keep correspondence between you and the child to build up your relationship. However, there is no harm in sending an occasional greeting from your family to your sponsored child.
