I and 14 and me and my friends gathered out money to donate to compassion, but can only send it in cash. if you have a donations mailing address, that would be great. if not, what can i do?

I'm sure Susan or Emily will tell you what can be done, but what I do is I use my parents credit card and give them the cash.

or have your parents write you out a check.  If they will not do that, go to Walmart or the post office, and ask for a money order.

Hi Aiden! That is so AWESOME that you and your friends raised money to help children in poverty! We normally say not to send cash in the mail because it has a tendency to get stolen or lost on its way here and is difficult to track. However, if you can get one of your parents to help you to go get a money order or use their debit or credit card that would work great. Again, thanks so much for your hard work in helping children in poverty! You all are an inspiration. :) Let us know if we can help in any other way.

This reply was created from a merged topic originally titled I think it would be a good idea to have a place where kids like me can mail cash ....

i want to send a donation, but cant send a check or credit card. a mailing address would be nice.
