Compassion International encourages sponsors to write their sponsored child the second Friday of each month. Now, I could ramble on and on about the reasons I think sponsoring a child through Compassion is great, but instead, let me tell you a few cool facts you may not know about how this child advocacy ministry makes letter writing easy and sponsor involvement meaningful.
-You can write your child online. Yepper, bye, bye stamp and jaunt to the mailbox.
-Compassion stationary can be downloaded from their site because although Compassion thoughtfully sends sponsors stationary created to make translation easier, mine disappears in the chaos of the bill basket.
-Struggling to come up with things to discuss in your letter? Compassion lists themes and letter writing ideas monthly.
-You can visit your sponsored child through Compassion Tours. We sponsor Audry in the Dominican Republic, and there happens to be a Compassion Tour heading there this Novemember. Can you imagine?
-The Compassion Blog encourages readers to do more than sign a check. It brings a little section of the world to you through real stories and amazing photographs.
If you already sponsor a child, woo-hoo! Any chance you might write them today?
If you don’t sponsor a child, I’m turning the comments off in hopes that maybe (fingers crossed!) you will click over and check out what’s happening over at the Compassion site.
