While preparing for the event, Agape debated whether to take time from the evening to have their donors set up their sponsorship at the event. They also wanted new children to be sponsored and avoid having duplicate sponsorships.
Once a child is sponsored, the sponsorship is immediately updated in the REACH system and on the website.
However, at an event when people are sponsoring at the same exact time, Agape wanted to avoid the possibility of multiple donors choosing the same child and then not being able to sponsor them if another donor completed the check-out process quicker.
The choice of using individualized sponsorship cards at each table helped to avoid this possibility.
Ultimately, Agape was glad they chose to have their donors sponsor children while at the event.
