No matter what form it takes, your correspondence is extremely meaningful to your sponsored child. It is not always easy to find items to send an older child. Listed below are a few ideas of gifts that your teenaged sponsored child would love!
- Hair accessories
- Toiletries (e.g. Toothbrush, Packaged Bar of Soap)
- Postcards from around the world
- Photos of your family, your pets, or your hometown
- Inflatable beach ball
- Pens and pencils
- Small notepads
- Pocket-sized Bible
For more ideas, see our Pinterest board! For a list of items to avoid, please check out our correspondence page. You may send gifts as often as once a month in a flat 6×9-inch envelope. These envelopes may be picked up at your local post office.
These items can be mailed to:
