What to write

Your sponsored child would love to get to know all about you. Tell them about your family and what you do for fun. If you have children or pets, it’s great to write about them too. Or get your kids to write as pen pals. It’s best to keep your letters short and simple for easy translation.

What to avoid

It’s best to steer clear of topics like religion and politics, as cultural backgrounds can be varied. But it’s always ok to let your sponsored child know you’re praying for them. Avoid writing about material possessions. It’s important that you never include your address.
