Release a child from poverty! I totally love this program! I have sponsored two children through Compassion, and it has been an overall good experience! I love how personal it is to be able to write the children. I love receiving their letters! As a humanitarian I encourage anyone to sponsor a child! Poverty is a horrible and desperate situation that no one should have to grow up in. As a Christian, I encourage others to give a child hope, to give a child the blessing of sponsorship, to give them the light of Jesus.

Beautiful Children I have enjoyed interacting with the children I sponsor through Compassion International. It is a joy to receive each letter from them. I was priviledged to see some of them face to face during Compassion Trips. It was wonderful to meet them and share God's love with them. It is hard to explain the joy of meeting someone in person who you only "knew" through letters. I would highly recommend Compassion. I feel like my sponsor children encourage me as much as I do them. To God be the Glory!

One of my greatest joys I've been a Compassion sponsor, volunteer, and advocate since 2012 and I love being a part of the ministry. I've visited one of my four children twice and I get to see firsthand how my sponsorship benefits him. Receiving letters from my babies is the best mail I ever get! I have enjoyed watching them grow in stature, maturity and in Christ over the years. I recommend child sponsorship through Compassion to as many people as I can. It's truly a blessing on both sides.

3 reasons I participate. There are basically three reasons that my wife and I participate in sponsoring a Child. 1.Cause I can. 2.Cause I want to. Most important 3. because I get to. What I can give makes a very large difference. I have watched a Child grow up and I got to be a part of something more wonderful than I ever could imagine. Yes, it's cause I get to.

Be a Light to Children in Poverty I highly recommend Compassion International. I sponsor a child from the Dominican Republic. I believe that Compassion International's heart is in the right place. I love their mission of freeing children from poverty by providing them with food, shelter, education, and Christ's love. It is exciting to know that you can be a part of their mission in a small yet very real way.

Wonderful Organization! I have sponsored a child in Ethiopia for almost 13 yrs now, from the time he entered the program. He is getting ready to graduate the program soon. I am so proud of all that Compassion does and would highly recommend this organization. Once he graduates I know that we will continue sponsoring a new child because the work that they do matters.

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!
