Hi, I called Compassion a few minutes ago, and I could not understand the representative. I have hearing loss in both of my ears so that's probably why. So, I thought I would ask my question here.

I have something I want to send to my little girl, Mayara. I should be getting a letter from her around this time. The last letter I received was on July 13. If I was going to get a letter from her soon.. I was going to wait and send the item when I respond to her letter. If not, I was going to go ahead and send it. Is there any way you could check if I should be getting one from her soon? My sponsor # is 3297568. I had a hard time understanding what the guy was saying on the phone to me. Thanks.

Hi Marissa,  someone from Compassion can tell you if there is a letter in route to you so I will let them do that!  I am sure if you send an email and ask any question you would ask by phone you will get an answer, just not as quickly.   I send lots of paper items to my kiddos.  If it is book I remove the covers and divide it into sections less than 1/4" thick.  I have an older girl (college) in India and she has learned English and she loves the books I send her.  It helps her work on her fluency in English.  I have three correspondents in Spanish speaking countries and I buy books in Spanish and send them the books in the same manner.  Books for younger students are easier to send because they are usually less than 1/4"  thick so I just have to remove the covers and send them, put their name & numbers on them and send them.  Whatever you send now should be delivered at Christmas so they will definitely appreciate it! 

Marissa, are you on Facebook?  There is a group for sponsors that is private (to protect the children) and to join a sponsor sends an email to Compassion at this address:  socialmedia@compassion.com     If you are interested I would encourage you to give it a try, it is a pretty friendly group of sponsors sharing ideas so it is very encouraging.

Thank you for the information, Denise! I have been sponsoring for quite a while now, though. I mainly was just wondering if there was a letter on the way from one of my little girls. So, I am aware of what I can and cannot send. Thanks again, though!

Hi Marissa! I am so sorry to hear that you couldn't understand the representative that you spoke with on the phone. :( You are always welcome to email ciinfo@compassion.com or post here and we would be happy to help you that way! It looks like we actually just sent you another letter from Mayara last week. I hope you receive this letter very soon so you are welcome to wait till you receive the letter or go ahead and send your letter anytime.
