I like to print out bible versus and inspirational quotes to send to my older kids.  I have several pinned on my pinterest page if you are interested.  http://www.pinterest.com/casey_snyder80/compassion-international/. Hope this helps!!

I just had a college-aged girl graduate from Compassion, and I have a few more that I sponsor.  I do send stickers, which they can give to their younger sisters if they don't want them.  Scripture cards are great, as mentioned above.  They are always asking for pictures.  I think mainly what they are looking for is a friend that cares about them.  Someone they know is going to pray for them, and let them know there is someone across the world that cares about them, is concerned when the bad weather comes (which is all the time there!).  Most of them are interested in Christian music and play an instrument.  I do most of my letters online to them, as they care more about what you have to say, then what you can send them.  They usually spend their birthday money, or any other money on clothes, as they do need to be able to have clothes for school, and if they are working already, then they for sure need money for clothes.

Brittany, I sponsor a college aged gal in India and she knows English fluently. I send Rose Publishing pamphlets I buy at the Christian bookstore (using a coupon of course). I send other booklets I find at the bookstore as well. When I send a book, I remove the covers and separate into less than 1/4 inch sections divided at chapters with th new chapter starting the next section of the book. I use an exacto-knife to help me cut the binding of the book and the I scotch the binding to make sure the sections of the books won't fall apart while they are reading it. My girl in India loves the books and says, please send me more! Once our kids know English it opens a whole new world of things we can send!
