I have some paper dolls for one of my children and I wanted to laminate them so they may last a little longer. There are some other things, such as flowers leaves etc., I would send in the future that would be laminated. Are laminated items acceptable?

If I send my child's items in an envelope(8.5x11), inside a larger envelope for mailing to CO, do the items and decorated envelope get sent to my child as a package?

Hi Suzanne! Yes, you are welcome to laminate your paper items to help them to last longer for your child. The answer to your second question would be yes. The reason why we do not send outer envelopes is because we do not want your return address to be sent to your child. However, if you enclose a decorated envelope inside of a larger envelope addressed to Compassion, we will send the decorated envelope to your child.
