Hi Sarah,
We are very thankful that you desire to send your child special items along with your letters. We encourage you to send letters and cards as often as possible. Please know that the only physical items that are able to be sent are musical or pop up cards, bookmarks and stickers. All of these items must be 100% paper, except the stickers which may be plastic. Anytime you send something to your child, please make sure to keep it to six pages or less. All letters, coloring pages or pictures will be scanned into an electronic document, unless otherwise noted above, and then printed in the child's country office to be delivered. 

In addition, please note that you do need to send a letter along with any stickers or bookmarks. If you choose to send a musical or pop up card, please do not write in it. We ask that you use a separate sheet of paper for your note so that it does not get damaged when we scan it for translation. 

You may send your items to our address below:

Our mailing address is as follows:
 
Compassion International
Attn: Correspondence
Colorado Springs, CO 80997
 
(A street address is not needed as we have our own zip code.)

I hope this is helpful! If you have any other questions, please let us know!
