I want to send my child an encouraging bookmark. I want to include the Compassion International logo on the bottom of this. Is there a way I can download a logo or get a .jpeg file emailed to me so I can include it?

Hi Jason! I want to encourage you that it's not required to place our logo on items that you send to your child. Because you're the one that's going to be creating this special bookmark for your kiddo and not Compassion, please feel free to make it your own with a unique style :). Is there a specific reason you were wanting to place our logo at the bottom of your bookmark?

The logo is not important to the bookmark. What I want to do is send Kevin a bookmark using his first name. Then create an encouraging word using each letter of his name. I want to get it laminated to keep it safe for him. I can create it here, but I would need help getting it translated into his language. I want to laminate the final product after it's translated. I want to send it to him for his birthday in October or Christmas. Is there a way I can get this done easily?

Hi Jason! I love how thoughtful you are being about this special gift for Kevin! An acrostic could be very affirming and encouraging to this young man! I usually suggest Google Translate for something like this but it will not translate into Guatemalan K'iche. You are welcome to ask around online to see if anyone knows this language. Otherwise, I may be able to help with translation into Guatemalan Spanish if you would email me (at socialmedia@compassion.com) the words that you wanted translated. I will try to have them translated keeping the letters of his name.

Jason, thank you so much for sending us what you're wanting to do for the bookmark! We are going to do our best to help you with the translation and are having one of our co workers that is from Guatemala, assist us. It might be difficult to keep the letters of Kevin's name with the words you wanted to associate with each letter because when translated, the words begin with a different letter. For example, in Spanish, 'Kind' is spelled 'Clase.' We will try to come up with words that have similar meanings to the ones you chose but still begin with each letter in his name. We will send our response in an email to you shortly. We love your idea and your creativity! :)

Thank you guys for all your help! I would not need it until August. I want to send it to him for his birthday. I am assuming the scriptures will translate fine as well.
