Hi! I want to send a physical picture of my family to my sponsored child. Is there a way to do that?

Hi Jennifer,

You can mail a picture with your letter, however, Compassion will scan it in Colorado Springs and send the file electronically to the child's country office.  They stopped physically mailing most items (some exclusions apply such as stickers and bookmarks) from the US to the various countries about a year ago in order to save on the astronomical cost of international shipping as well as the lengthy time frame for such a process so that the money can be used to benefit the kids and sponsors will have a faster turnaround time for letters to and from the kids.  Rest assured though that the photo (and letters) will then be printed on high-quality paper and delivered to your child, who I'm sure will be thrilled to see your family.
