Hello! I was wondering about printing the letter writing templates on the compassion site? I want to send more letters to my sponsor child but I can't seem to figure out how to print the templates online :( i haven't received any in the mail in a while and i need to hand write and mail it so it can be mailed with some stickers and a card i am sending as well. If this is not possible and I need to find other stationery or wait for more to come in the mail that is fine too! I just would like to know if it is possible and i'm just not seeing it somewhere :) thanks!

I usually just write my letter online on the templates. However, it is possible to print an almost empty one to write on with pen if you'd rather.  Also, you can use any sheet of paper you want to write a letter. Just make sure to put your sponsor name, ID, child name and child ID on the top of each piece of paper.

This is how to print the online templates.
1. Choose the child and get into Compose Letter mode
2. Choose the template you want
3. Under write letter write anything (You could do "." to make it as easy as possible to white out. But another good choice might be to write Dear <childname>,  then you don't have to write that afterward.
4. Click next until you get to Preview and PRINT that preview.  That gives you the template on paper for you to write on
5. Go into My Drafts and delete the empty letter you created.

Under “write letter” you can actually just hit the space bar. Then there is nothing to white out!
