Aye, aye, aye. My mom has picked up 2 new kids from the batch of babies that has come in. May I please 1) get them transferred to my account as correspondents and 2) have their photos emailed to me? In a separate question, I had my mom's account set up on automatic payment some time ago and it got turned off due to one of the many times we had cards compromised in stores last year. I would like to set her back up on auto payment, but I am paying the past due amount down so as not to shock the wallet. Is there a way to set up automatic payment but make it only for the current month, or will it take the entire amount due the first time it runs? Oh, and the new children are Fernanda (NI1600716) and Hendricks (NI1600709). Her sponsor number is 3542984. Thanks!

Good morning, Lindsay! Your family is getting so big! :) You and Joselyn are such a blessing, tell her thank you from us and we appreciate her so much! 

As requested, I have moved Fernanda and Hendricks over to your account to be your correspondent children but they're still on her account as financial children. 

Now, her children are not all current on their support through the same month, just so you're also aware of this. We have the ability to set up automatic withdrawal to begin pulling on a specific date but not withdrawal the back support until you're ready. Her two new children are current through March and so if we set her up on automatic withdrawal, we would set the next donation to pull in April for them. Maykim, Nirupama, and Anumika are current through the end of September, and then Aboubacar, Yiliany, and Yuliany, are current through the end of October (this is just an FYI in case you were wondering).

So all this to say, yes! We can set your automatic withdrawal up to only pull March's donation. Then, you can make the back support up as you're able, manually either online or asking us to do it. If you have a card already on file that you'd like to use, let me know and I can set each of them up and ensure they only withdrawal March's support.

Fantastic! I was surprised to find that her account was so far behind but I can't even keep track of how many card replacements both she and I have been through in the past year, She, in fact, has a new one on the way so I'm going to make the monthly payment for the other kids who haven't already been paid on that, and then we'll set it up with her new card when it arrives and is activated. I'll put it so one half comes out on the 5th and half on the 15th.

Okay, wonderful! So just to clarify, are you waiting for the new card to make any future donations on your mother's account or would you like me to process any one time donations on a card we already have on file? We have both a MasterCard and a Visa on your account. If you're wanting to use one of those, just let me know. Otherwise, I'll just make notes on Joselyn's account that you'll be contacting us with your new card when it comes in.

I already did it. When the new card comes in I can set up the new little ones on my own, then I'll let you know about the others. So it'll be everyone's April sponsorship that goes on the new card with automatic withdraw.

Lindsay, I'm sending you an email with the photos for both Fernanda as well as Hendricks. You're such a wonderful daughter helping your mom out with her account the way that you do :).

Thanks! It's funny how life works. I think my sponsorships helped her mentally through a very rough time she had last year both mentally and physically. We had a big problem because she wouldn't eat, for example, but then I'd get a letter from a kid saying how their favorite thing about the project was that there was food there. My mom would hear that and try harder to eat her food, for example, because she felt bad that she was throwing so much away when a 5 year old girl had nothing. She also started sponsoring in that time...though it turned out she didn't remember doing so later (good ol' pain meds! lol). It's very good to have her and the rest of my family so supportive of the program, even though my mom and I are the only sponsors.
