The child number that are on the letter I received from Regina and the child number that is listed in her information on the computer do not match. Yours has an extra 0 in it. Which is correct? Regina's number should be ME9910122. This website lists two zeros in a row. Also, we were told that her number wouldn't change, but her letter has a different number at the top by her name (0536639). Which of these three numbers are the number i am to use. My sponsor # is 02432836? Thank you!!! Cindy Yeats

They added 0s in the child numbers both in the center number area and the child #. To allow future expansion for more children to be sponsored. You should be able to use either ME9910122 or ME099100122 to refer to your child with no problems. I suspect the third number is an internal database number. But having never seen a letter from my sponsored child I cannot be certain.

Hi Cindy! I am so sorry for the confusion about Regina's child number. Like Sarah mentioned, we did update the child numbers by adding more zeros to allow more children to be registered in the program. Please use the child ID ME099100122 for Regina now, and do not worry about the other number 0536639 by her name. We use that number internally, but you don't need to use it yourself :).
