Do My Letters Really Matter?

In short, YES! The support letter you write serves a pivotal role in making the child you partner with feel known, special, and encouraged. For many children, your letters become a precious gift they keep for years.

In our busy lives, we know writing letters can be a challenge. Setting aside intentional time to write to your child is hard enough, let alone knowing what to say to make a meaningful connection. It takes time and energy, but we promise the investment of your time reaps so much joy in the life of a vulnerable child as they learn they are loved and thought of by someone across the world.

Here are some tips to help you get started.

Therefore encourage one another and build one another up, just as you are doing. 1 Thessalonias 5:7
