Hello, I absolutely love sponsoring my child and I’m glad that I can help her in any way. Recently I’ve had cut back hours at work as well as many medical bills I need to pay and I will be out of the country for awhile. I want to keep sponsoring Madeleine but was wondering if I could stop payments for 3 months to allow me to get caught up on other bills. Thank you for your time and God bless. -Brogan Sponsor Number 07159337

Brogan, I'm so sorry you've had lots of medical bills that you need to get caught up on. I am able to cover your donations for the months of April and May, but we are only able to cover 5 months of donations within an 18 month period. I can reduce your sponsorship donations for a few months, June through August, to $19 per month if that would help you out as well. I'll take care of waiving your April and May donations today, and you let me know if you need me to reduce the rate for June through August.

Hi Sarah,
Thank you so much! I really appreciate it! I love being a sponsor and hate not being able to make my donations, but hadn't realized I'd be without work, so thank you for taking away the anxiety! :)
Blessings!

Hi I recently hit a financial bump and really need at least the next two months covered. I really would love to keep sponsoring the child though.

Hi Brogan, I have completed your request and reduced the monthly contribution from $38 to $19 for the months of June, July and August. The normal monthly contribution of $38 will resume in September.

Hello!

I love sponsoring a child but like the others above I have had some unexpected medical bills come through and I am unable to pay.  Is there any way to temporarily suspend payments?  Maybe like 3 months worth and then I can get back to paying again?

Thank you!

Hi!
I also like the above, am sponsoring a child and feel so grateful to be able to financially support another but I also recently have been unexpectably being confronted with financial disadvantages. I would love to continue supporting my child but I cannot at current. Is there anyway on halting my sponsorship for at least three months??
Sorry for the inconvenience.
