Dear sponsor, I would like to know …

Have you ever wondered what sponsored children like to know about you? Well, wonder no more! We asked five adorable children in Colombia what they would like to know about their sponsors.

Hopefully this helps you in writing your next letter to your sponsored friend!

  1. I love this post. It is such a good reminder to write and share our world with our sponsored friends just like they share theirs. These are some curious and ambitious kids!

  2. Ohhhh my goodness sakes. I sure hope sponsors also take the time to write letters. While the sponsorship is of course important, and provides the benefits, it is the letters that develops and binds the relationship. The sponsored are soooooo excited to hear from us. Believe me, I know. Yo se.

  3. And it is easier than ever to write using the “online letters” facility of the CFCA website. You just type in the letter and it is sent automatically. No envelopes no stamps, no trip to the post office. So easy!!
