My heart broke when I received a pastor's report from a Compassion Centre describing children's sadness when they don't receive a letter. Is it possible to send you cards to distribute to children not sponsored yet and let them know that they are loved and not forgotten?

Something you can do, is send extra cards, stickers, etc., to your child and ask them to give them to kids with no sponsors/kids whose sponsors don't write. That is the only way I know of to send anything physical to a child other than your own.

Hi Ilaria! I love your heart to make sure children receive letters! Thank you for your kindness! Regrettably, we do not have a regular system in place to route letters to unsponsored children. However, you are welcome to do as Garry mentioned and send extra cards, stickers, and goodies and ask your child to share with other children at the center. Also, we do send cards to unsponsored children at Christmas as an extra little encouragement during this special time of the year. The deadline in 2015 for Christmas cards for unsponsored children is by November 2. Please keep these Christmas cards short and sweet and send them to:

Can we start sending Christmas cards whenever? Or do we need to wait closer to November 2?

Hi Laura! Please hold your cards until September and then send them. It would be difficult for us to store the cards for that long. Thank you so much for your interest though!
