I just received my first letter from my sponsor child, Jeferson, today! So exciting! Even though the letter was written by a tutor (he is only five) it was very sweet. I noticed with the letter was stationary to write one back and an envelope. If I write back with this stationary could I put pictures in the envelope with the letter? Or do I have to get a larger envelope for this?

That's really exciting! I remember getting my first letter from Angela. Her's was written by her sister because she was only 6 when we sponsored her.

You're welcome to include pictures with your letter in the envelope you received. I know that Jeferson will really enjoy seeing them! Just be sure to include your sponsor number and his reference number on the back so they don't get misplaced.

Thank you! I will definitely do this then! I'm so excited to learn more about him!

One other question was that he talked about his favorite toys being toy cars. I read that sponsors shouldn't send pictures of things that show large income divides, such as cars. But could I send car stickers? I wanted to include something like stickers, but a lot of the packs of stickers come with a car or truck sticker.

Hi Steph!

Absolutely! Children love to receive stickers! I'm sure Jeferson will love them! I also send my children bandaids. They love the ones with designs and cartoons, so that is another idea as well.
