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. (Check out these easy-to-use templates!) Your letter shows them that someone cares about them and their future – a very important feeling for a child!
