Make a brief follow-up announcement the week after your event.
Update your church on how many people chose to sponsor a child. Thank them for their response to the call to take care of the poor. If you still have children who have not been sponsored, remind them that they can still visit the table and sign up.
Complete your Compassion Sunday survey.
On the day after your event, you’ll receive a survey email from Compassion. We would greatly appreciate it if you took a moment to tell us about your Compassion Sunday experience. Your response is critical to helping us know how to better support amazing sponsors like you in coming years.
Continue advocating for children.
Even though Compassion Sunday is over, we know that your passion for releasing children from poverty doesn’t just go away. So, please continue to speak out on behalf of children! Here are a few simple ways you can advocate in everyday life:
- Follow up with members of your church who sponsored a child on Compassion Sunday. Ask how it’s going. Encourage them to write letters.
- Bring up child sponsorship to the people in your life outside church — like family members, coworkers and other friends.
- Post about the impact of child sponsorship on social media. Check out Compassion’s YouTube channel to find inspiring videos to share.
