I heard that you can start a letter-writing relationship with children who are sponsored by businesses who cannot write to them. How do I start?! I'd love to do that!

Hi Lily! 

I just added you to the waiting list for a correspondent child. We are absolutely delighted to have you write to a child! We assign correspondents for sponsors who do not have the time or desire to write, and as soon as an opening becomes available, we will assign a child to you. At that time, we will send you an information packet for the child, as well as writing instructions.

The requirement to be a correspondent is a commitment to write at least three times a year. In turn, you will receive three letters a year from the child. Our experience has shown that children who receive consistent encouragement tend to set higher goals for themselves. Your role is a very important aspect of our ministry.

Will I receive a packet in the mail like I did for my sponsor child? The one with the picture and bookmark and everything?

Yes, you will receive a packet just like you did for your financially sponsored child, bookmark, picture and all. :)
