Oh dear :( I was so happy to receive a letter today from my correspondent Mayla and thought "Wow, she really wrote a long letter!" but it turns out there was another young kids letter stuck to her stuff. Different project, but at least the same country. How do I forward this on? I apologize because I know this has been answered before but it didnt come up when I searched topics. Lol. Now I'm all nervous about my letters getting delivered to other people. Hopefully everyone would be kind enough to send the letters on their way.

Oh, Lindsay :(. I am so sorry about this! I know what a bummer it must have been to open up that beautiful letter and have it not be from your child. Thank you for offering to send the letter in so that we can try and get it to the correct sponsor. I will also contact our field office staff and ask that Mayla write another letter to you. 

You may scan a copy of the letter to us at socialmedia@compassion.com and Susan or I will take care of it. You can also mail the letter into our office at the following address:

Oh no, no, no! I *did* get Mayla's letter so all is wonderful with that! I just got an extra letter from another little girl who I don't sponsor folded in with Mayla's letter. I'm off work today for Veteran's Day and don't really keep office stuff at home since I'm ALWAYS at work it seems (or on vacation, Yay!) so I'll either swing by Staples and scan this out or I'll take care of it way too early tomorrow morning. Since the post office is off today too, I'll have this out tomorrow afternoon on my "morning" break.

Hi, Emily/Susan! I just sent off the e-copy of the letter. Please let me know if you do not receive it because the security settings on my work computer are funny about getting things out sometimes, even when I'm using a personal account.I'll have the hardcopy in the mail today as well.
