SEND A PHOTO OF YOU WITH YOUR CHILD’S LETTER!
Have you ever received a photo of your child holding one of YOUR letters?! A few years ago, that happened to me. I received a photo from Hubert holding a plastic bag. In it, I could clearly see one of the photos I had sent to him. It was such a buzz!
However Julie, another Compassion sponsor took it one step further. She sent a photo BACK to her sponsored child…
SIMPLE BUT POWERFUL ~ TWO FRAMES TO CHOOSE FROM ~ FLORAL OR CARTOON MOUSE; FREE PRINTABLE
“The other day, my daughter Lilia got a letter from her sponsored child, and it included the greatest thing: a picture of Gloria, holding the letter she had just gotten from Lilia. Which got me thinking… We read a lot about how much our letters mean to sponsored children, but do they know how much their letters mean to us?… Have someone take a picture of you holding your sponsored child’s latest letter… print out one of these frames and paste your photo onto it, and send it with your next letter…”
PAPER BAG BOOKLET WITH SECRET MESSAGES
And while you are there, make sure you also check out Julie’s neat idea of making a little secret message book from lunch paper bags. Taking care not to bust the quarter inch thickness guidelines for your complete package, each page becomes an exciting pocket to hold a secret message, a Bible verse, a note of love, or special treats like stickers! [Update 2016: new Compassion guidelines allow flat paper items only for our sponsored children, but this is a great idea for your homeschool or Sunday school students].
Thanks Julie, for giving me your permission to share your fabulous ideas! :)
