I love the new online letter writing templates-- thank you! I have two ideas to share: first, it would be great if we could create a page with more photos (4-8 photos) and the ability to include a text description under each photo. Background designs could be holiday, seasonal, wedding, baby, and everyday designs. Second, it would be very helpful and encouraging if we could access the information that tells if there is a child letter on the way to us. There have been several times when I have called Compassion, because I hadn't heard from one of my sponsored children for so long. The Compassion representative then checked and told me that I had one in transit from that child. It would save Compassion many phone calls to simply give sponsors access to that information. Thank you for your consideration!

I also agree that it would be great to be able to see when a letter is in transit on our account! One more suggestion regarding letter writing is that it would be nice if there was maybe one or two more slightly generic templates. Many of them are made for holidays, birthdays, and for younger children, but when I write to my teenage boys it would be nice if there were a few more templates to chose from! However I love this tool! Thank you very much!

These are all really great ideas. More templates would be great. I feel like I'm having to reuse the same ones over and over so a few more options would be wonderful! Knowing when letters are in transit would indeed be very helpful and would definitely save a lot of worry and phone calls to CI. Being able to include a text under pictures would be great. It would save more writing space in the letter if we are able to explain the picture in a text underneath it. I hope Compassion can put some of these ideas into action!
