What our Sponsors are Saying:

Greatest Investment Ever I count the small investment of time, energy and money I've made toward the beautiful children I've met in Compassion's child sponsorship program as one of my best investments ever. To participate in a child's life in ways that benefit them, their family and their community is an incredible blessing to all parties involved. The children receive sustenance, education, encouragement and gifts. The sponsor receives encouraging letters, opportunities to pray and encourage and a grateful heart.

Sponsorship is an wonderful blessing Compassion does whatever they can to help children. When my sponsored child's estranged father reentered the family and beat her mother, Compassion aided immediately with counseling and regular therapy session for the physical abuse suffered by the mother. When India broke away from all NGOs, Compassion worked endlessly to try and retain presence there knowing all too well, their work is of the utmost importance. Writing the children is a wonderful and profound experience.

A Compassionate Heart I am sponsoring a child in Asia. I love being able to write letters back and forth, to check up on her and make sure she is okay. I love knowing that I am able to help someone so easily, when they are in dire need. The Compassion Experience opened my eyes to the realities of third world countries and what we can do for them. Thank you for opening my eyes and my heart.

Matthew 25:40 It is a blessing to have a place that can be trusted to get help to those in need. Along with knowing children and families are helped, it also gives Christian sponsors the opportunity to make a difference and for us to do unto the Lord. Matthew 25:40 "And the King shall answer and say unto them, Verily I say unto you, Inasmuch as ye have done it unto one of the least of these my brethren, ye have done it unto me." --Jesus Christ

We couldnt be more excited!! We heard about Compassion on our local radio station and went to the website and instantly fell in love with Sami! We knew right away he was the one the Lord wanted us to sponsor! We are already planning a trip to meet him. We are so excited for this opportunity to make a difference and spread the love of Jesus and our love to Sami.

My favorite charity I have been sponsoring a child since 1988, shortly after I graduated from high school. I have sponsored countless children since then and I could not be happier! Compassion has always been very financially responsible and they truly do have a heart for all of these kids. In the 1990s I sponsored a child in Africa who was lost in the Zaire war and I thought he was dead until he contacted me a couple of years ago on Facebook! He said he was fine and told me of what a difference my sponsorship made.

I believe in the mission I have seen and heard firsthand stories that Compassion programs changes lives. I highly recommend and urge all Christians to pray about sponsoring a child (or better yet, multiple children!). The children need us, and quite frankly, I have been just as changed and blessed by the children.

It's all about helping the children! I currently sponsor 4 kids & started in Dec 2009. I really like the connection with & communication from the kids. In the past few years I have had problems receiving letters & gift acknowledgements. Some Centers do not stay on top of sending initial get acquainted letters, letter writing & gift receipts. The issues with upgrades to their system in Colorado have REALLY slowed down the process too. I am thinking about stopping my sponsorships due to these & other issues. I am praying about it!

My blessings! I have been very blessed to pour out love to children through Compassion and meet one sponsored child in person. What a blessing all of my children have been to me. The special blessing is when you realize they have finally realized they are special and loved, because it is easy for them to believe they are not. I write to them knowing they may not be able to return what I expect in words, but eventually (and it can take years) they do. Oh the joy they bring!

Very Nice Compassion's child sponsorship program is a great way to help others, and take action. This program allows us to show the love of Jesus to others.

Well Pleased We recently sent a gift to our child in Ecuador through the birthday fund. Shortly after her birthday she wrote and thanked us and was excited to tell us about the new clothes and shoes she was able to get because of the gift. Imagine a child excited to get clothes for their birthday. What more needs said?

Truly an amazing organization!! I love the fact that almost every penny you give goes for the child's development. I love my child so much!! She has been a blessing to me in so many ways. God is working in her life and mine. It is so amazing to watch this young girl grow up in a safe and family oriented pace, amongst the cruel and violent world where she is from. I hope that you can help and sponsor a child. If you are reading these reviews, you are thinking about it. JUST DO IT!!

Rakelane I sponsor my child so that he and his family can hear the Gospel of JESUS CHRIST and the way to heaven. Education no matter how good it is will NOT get a person in to heaven.

Love & Legit I have always been a skeptic but before I became a sponsor I knew people who sponsored through Compassion. They were really involved and had even visited their sponsor child overseas. Also my youth pastor met a grown woman who had been a Compassion sponsor child and she told him how the program changed her life. So several people I knew personally and trusted had these encounters. Their endorsement helped me decide to sponsor and I hope my endorsement will help others likewise. This is legitimate.

Changing the World, One Child at Time I started sponsoring in 2002. At the time I wasn't living in Colorado and had no idea that 10 years later I would start working at Compassion. I thought Compassion was awesome before I started working here. Now that I have worked here for over 4 years, I am even more impressed than I was before. God is working through Compassion International to further His Kingdom. I've visited churches and children in Ecuador and I've seen first hand the positive impact they are having.

Blessing A wonderful Christian organisation. I have been sponsoring a little boy in Indonesia for a year now. It gives great joy to know that he and his family are being blessed by this work.

SHARING GOD'S LOVE I have been a sponsor for a child in Togo Africa and is such a blessing! I have heard from my sponsored child as soon as I began writing to him, and with the new computer website, the letters get sent so much quicker...we are able to respond back to questions and send photos on line. It is a wonderful experience, and has been such a blessing, as I hear how he is doing and the things he is learning about God. My prayer is that more people would sponsor this year! Go for it!

Compassion is a Blessing! We started sponsoring several years ago, our finances were tight and we only had 2 biological daughters. In the years since, God has honored our sacrifice and blessed us & our finances immensely! We are now the very proud parents of 8 children (2 biological, 4 adopted & 2 foster-to-adopt), we are now sponsoring 12 children & I now work with troubled teenage boys in a full-time ministry job! I would highly recommend Compassion sponsorship to everyone! God will bless you for it!

Sponsorship will change your life We have been sponsoring a child from India since 2012. It has been an amazing experience working with Compassion. Their customer service is awesome and they keep me updated on his progress with letters and emails. I love that I can write letters and give him gifts online. It is amazing how much he has changed in the four years we have been sponsoring him. He went from a child that looked so sad to a child with a twinkle in his eye that only comes from knowing and loving the Lord!

Poor Communication & Patent Answers I started sponsoring a child 2 years ago. During that time I asked several times what gifts my child received for her birthday and Christmas and never received an answer. My child moved out of the area and I received a new child with the same lack of communication. I'm sure Compassion International does great work but in my case I don't feel comfortable giving money and not knowing if or what my child is receiving. I'm done sponsoring. I will do it locally where I know what my child is receiving firs

Giving Hope and Love I love what Compassion is all about. I absolutely love the connection I have with my sponsor child. I want to meet my precious Angel one day. It's not expensive and it hurts me to see that children are suffering and I wish I can be able to help them all. I love what Compassion does, prayer is a powerful tool, by sponsoring and connecting with my child, they give me hope, faith and love. It's a rewarding experience.

Love this Organization! I have absolutely loved the experience of sponsoring a child. There's nothing quit as rewarding as forming a relationship with your sponsor child. I have loved getting to know the little girl I sponsor and being able to be a part of her life. I wanted to sponsor a child in order to be a blessing in someone else's life, but she has ended up being more of a blessing to me than I could ever imagine!

This has CHANGED my life! Compassion has really changed my life! I love the Lord, and He spoke to me that I should sponsor a little girl in the Philippines. Now I have been sponsoring her for almost a year, and just started to write to another girl in Ethiopia. I thank Compassion and my church's Compassion Sunday. I highly recommend this program!
