I hope this description makes sense.
I am sending a single birthday card with stickers inside. It comes in a card envelope. Should I leave the card for you to keep these two items together on the trip to Uganda or can I send them to Colorado in this envelope because you are going to remove the card anyway?

Hi Sarah! I'm not quite sure what you are asking, but it sounds like you are wanting to know if you should take this card with the stickers on your trip to Uganda or if you should send them to our office in Colorado. Is that correct?

No. Obviously I did not articulate well. I want to send a birthday card to my child in Uganda.  I know to put the Sponsor ID and Child ID on the card and the stickers. Do I need to put them in the card envelope (the one that comes with the card when you purchase it) and in a separate envelope to send to Colorado -- so you can use the envelope to keep them together? Or are you going to remove them from that envelope before sending on anyway?

I usually put the child's name, child ID, and sponsor ID on the back of the card and on the back of the stickers. I put them both in the envelope the card came with and mail it to Colorado. I assume the envelope gets thrown out anyway. Not an official answer from Compassion, but that's what I do :)

Sarah, thanks for the rewording! I probably just have "Friday brain" ;). The items will be removed from the envelope once they arrive at our office, but you can just send them in that one envelope and not double up on them the same way Erin does.

Thank you. I suspected that but did not want to cause more work than necessary (for me or you) :)
