In Mali, a Save the Children staff member stands with a group of sponsored children excitedly displaying letters from their sponsors.

Children look forward to receiving letters from their sponsors. Explore our tips and tools on writing a letter or emailing your sponsored child.

Writing to Your Sponsored Child

When you sponsor a child, you’re creating lasting change in their lives and beyond. Letter writing is a great way to build on the unique, life-changing bond between you and your sponsored child.

You can send a letter through postal mail, email or by sending a message via your online account.

Children from all around the world tell us that receiving letters from their sponsors has made an incredible impact in their lives.

Take a moment out of your day to write to your sponsored child. Your letter shows them that someone cares about them and their future – a very important feeling for a child!
