I just read that sandwhich bags are not ok to send in Compassion correspondence.  Are freezer bags that zip up ok?  I used one to send a pre-assembled puzzle recently.  Also, it seems like they might be useful to the children if they are in a dusty or rainy country.  They would make good letter or sticker holders.  Thanks!

Hi Beverly! Please assemble the puzzle with glue first (so that it's flat) but you are welcome to enclose it in a sandwich or freezer bag as long as it fits the size guidelines. It is usually best to send paper or laminated items though.
