Good evening,
My family committed to sponsoring a beautiful child in Haiti and we have fallen behind on our other bills, not just this one over the past several months as I work at a school and we don"t get a paycheck over the summer. It is very important to me that my young daughters continue this journey with our sponsorship, but I feel like I am in a hole that I just cant climb out of. What can I do?

I'm not staff, just a sponsor, but I'm happy to hear you get your daughters involved too.  I do the same and it's been incredible for her :) My girl is almost 3 and has had 3 children for the past year.  She loves drawing for them and deciding what to write.  
Compassion can definitely help you!  They aren't in on weekends (usually) but I'm sure tomorrow they'll answer you.  They have an option where they can pay for you for 3 months, and then cut your payments to $19/month for 6 months.  It's a one-time thing so you can't do it every summer but it could help you get caught up!

Hi Meghann, 

Thank you for reaching out to us. We would be more than happy to help! As Teresa said, we do have some options for you, but they would be a one time thing, as we would not be able to do it every year. Going forward from here, I see you are currently 4 months behind. We would be happy to just cover those past 4 months for you, and that would allow you to pick up this month and start over fresh. Please let us know if you feel this would be helpful! We look forward to hearing back from you!

Hi Shannon, that would be amazing! Thank you so much for blessing us with this help. I get paid on the 15th and can make this months payment then.

Hi Shannon the conversation I started was closed before I could reply to you. I need to cancel my subscription. I appreciate the help for these months but I dont think by January I will be in a better place. In February I need to start paying Student Loans :(

Hello Vanessa! As you requested, I have gone ahead and cancelled your sponsorship with Kaleabe. Thank you so much for your sponsorship of Kaleabe for the past seven months! If you would like to sponsor another child in the future, please let us know and we would be blessed to partner with you again! :)
