4 Ways To Save Time Writing Your Sponsored Child
Posted By Web Team On July 9, 2013 @ 12:05 am In Letter Writing | 18 Comments
In the first two years of sponsoring my child, I mailed two letters.
I felt terrible about sending so few, especially because I had received six or seven.
So why didn’t I write more letters? The answer is simple: It wasn’t convenient.
I know that is a bad excuse. The truth is, it was more convenient to sleep or hang out with friends or watch TV. I knew letter writing was important, I just never gave it my time.
Then I found out I could write my sponsored child  online. Knowing I needed to step up my letter-writing game, I decided to give the online letter-writing tool a try. I am so glad I did. It was a game-changer.
If you are having a hard time writing to your sponsored child, here are four reasons to try writing online:
Since I started using the online tool, I send a letter every one to two months. I am much more pleased with that rate. The increase in letters has also positively affected my relationship with my sponsored child.
Now my relationship with him is more personal, meaningful and fun. It feels more like an actual relationship and less like a sponsorship.
So if you’re struggling to write letters, try writing online. Letters are the primary way to let your sponsored children know you love them, and online is an easy way to do it.
To get started, log in to your Compassion account . In the Account Summary section, beneath My Messages, there is a list of the children you sponsor. Just click the name of the child you want to write to and away you go.
If you don’t have a Compassion account, you can easily create one using your donor number and email address.
