It’s the question we heard over and over when we asked you what you want to know about letter writing this year on the Compassion Letter Club.
We heard it when you said, “I haven’t gotten a letter from her in a while.” We heard it when you asked about the topics he has included — or not included — in his letters to you. No matter your questions or expectations, we heard what you really want to know:
“Do my letters to the child I sponsor actually matter?”
But we wish you could ask our alumni – the young men and women who receive those letters, treasure them, even memorize them – that question.
You may not be able to ask them, but we sure can!
A few years ago, we gathered nearly a dozen Compassion alumni from around the world, and we asked them all sorts of questions about their lives and their time in the Compassion program. And, inevitably, the topic of letters came up.
When you watch the video below, imagine yourself sitting in that circle with those Compassion almuni. Asking them about why letters matter. And hearing the stories of joy, sadness and constant, beautiful gratitude. And imagine what the child you sponsor would say if you were able to ask…
“Do my letters matter to you?”
Your words matter, not just for the moment but for a lifetime. Keep sharing your life and your love. Send a letter today.
