Letter Writing Dos and Don’ts
DO (to benefit your child)
- Correspond at least once every three months with your sponsored child. Our suggestion is: One letter, One page in length, Once a month.
- Tell them about things you enjoy doing in your spare time.
- Tell them about your job, school and family.
- Share your walk with Christ with them.
- Share your dreams for your future.
- Tell them about your hobbies and interests.
- Tell them about interesting places you have visited.
- Include pictures of your family and about your life.
DON’T (to protect your child and yourself)
- Don’t send gifts. (A birthday and Christmas gift for your child is provided by the monthly sponsorship funds.)
- Don’t promise anything you can’t keep. This includes mentioning that you’d like to visit ‘sometime.’ To a lonely child this means you are coming in the next few weeks.
- Don’t make any type of suggestion that you may want to adopt them or bring them to the US.
- Don’t give personal mailing information or phone numbers for your privacy.
- Don’t share personal financial information with them.
