I feel like I need more instruction on how to mail my child letters. Do I have to write their name & spons # on the outside of the envelope or on the letter itself? I am anxious to write but this is keeping me from doing it more...

You should write your child's name, number and your sponsor number on the letter itself. I like to use printable address labels with the information printed right on it so that it can stick it to the letter, stickers, coloring pages etc. that I put together for my kids.

You may write on any stationery you have. Just be sure to include your child's number on your letter as well as your sponsor number as Kristen said. Also, be sure to include this information on anything else you send with your letter (photos, stickers, etc.)

I have seen on my account that I can write online to my child. But what should I do if I want to send something to her? Can't I send her a handwriting letter?

On the website, I see how to send an online letter. I would like to send a handwritten letter. What do I need to know to do this?

Thanks.

I have always written online, but I want to send a birthday card and some stickers and paper dolls, How do I address this? I will need to use a 8 X11 envelope. Thanks, Jyll Johnson, sponsor 3090636-3

I sponsor more than one child. Do I need to send letters to each of them in separate envelopes? Or can I send everything together to Compassion in one envelope as long as the child's name and sponsor number is on the materials? Thanks.

Hi Kali,
Yes, you can send letters for more than one child in an envelope.  No need to use separate envelopes - just make sure that your sponsored children's names and numbers are on all items. :)
