Can I or a group I am part of send letters unsponsored children, similar to how we can send generic letters to those serving in the military?

Groups and individuals may write letters to unsponsored children, but only during the Christmas season, which for us are the months of September, October and November.

The letters should be generic so that they may be given to any child

Include a cover letter explaining that the letters are for unsponsored children. Sponsors may specify the country, otherwise, the letters will be split among several countries

Send the letters to:
Attn: Suzanne Hall
Compassion International
Colorado Springs, CO 80997
or
Compassion Canada
Attn: Sheena Morrison
P.O. Box 5591
London, ON N6A 5GB

That is cool. I wish it could be done all year. The unsponsored kids need to know that others love them, I think.

Since this response was written in 2011, is this the same info for 2012 as well? I just want to plan ahead! Also, I read that there is a limit of 25 Christmas cards that one person can send in for unsponsored children - is this correct?
