As Compassion sponsors, we have the opportunity to pour love into the lives of the children we sponsor with encouraging and uplifting words in every letter we mail to them. The words in our letters can make a difference. Here’s some inspiration for your letter writing so you can be an inspiration to them!

You can join in the creativity by pinning and sharing your fun and inspirational ideas with #compassionletter!
