I was a camp counselor for a few weeks, and my girls had a lot of questions about sponsorship. Most of them are young (12-15) and from lower income families, but love the idea of ministering to a child. I sponsor a child through correspondence, and a lot of them were interested in this, since they are currently not in positions to sponsor financially. Does Compassion still do this, and-if so-how can I help my campers get involved? Thank you!

Hi Alli! Thank you so much for being a wonderful advocate for children living in extreme poverty! We absolutely love your heart to see the value in letter writing :). Anyone can get involved with our correspondence program by simply contacting us via this online help forum, calling us at 800-336-7676, or emailing us at socialmedia@compassion.com. Of course, since the children's ages you mentioned are minors, they would need the approval of their parents to become a correspondent sponsor, and the children would need to understand the expectations of being a correspondent sponsor. The role of the correspondent is to build a relationship with a child through letter writing, which means they would receive all the correspondence from the child. We are looking for people who will commit to writing a minimum of three times a year. If your students desire to get involved in this ministry, please encourage them to speak with their parents or guardians about it :). If their parents or guardians give their consent, then they or their parents may contact us to get started :). Please let us know if you have any additional questions. Have a blessed day!
