I sponsor a little girl in Honduras and I'm trying to send her a card through an online company. I can make a card with pictures and they print it and send it as an actual card to wherever. Is it possible to get it translated? Could I send it to myself, include a paper for translation, and send it out to compassion? or would it not get translated?

You can send cards and letters written on your own stationary with no trouble, so I don't see why it wouldn't work to do exactly as you said- Send the order to yourself and pass it along to Compassion with extra space/paper for translation. Just make sure you have the child's name, number, and your sponsor ID on each piece.

Hi Lindsee! Thank you so much for wanting to send your child a personalized card! You are welcome to send the card to yourself and mail it to us. We will send it to the country office in Honduras and it will be translated and given to your child. Just as Lindsay said above, we ask that you label the items clearly so that it is processed correctly and given to the correct child.
