Do you remember celebrating Valentine’s Day at school as a child?

I certainly do.

My classmates and I would zip around the room with bags of valentines, dropping one into each person’s decorated shoebox. At the end of the day, we’d all turn over the boxes, dump out our valentines, and eagerly start reading …

As a child, receiving valentines meant a lot. Maybe it was knowing that someone had taken the time to pick out one specifically for you — whether it was themed with superheroes, puppies, or princesses. There was a certain excitement in seeing your name scribbled on the front and wondering what message you’d find inside.

Perhaps you remember exchanging valentines at school, too. Or maybe you have kids or grandkids who are experiencing it now. If that’s the case, I encourage you to ask them what they think about valentines.

Chances are they love them.

And your sponsored child would love one, too!

This February, you can use the downloadable valentine we’ve created to show your sponsored child how much you care. It’s free and can be personalized in minutes! Click here to download it. Once you’ve finished, simply mail your valentine to:

[Sponsored Child’s name and ID #]
c/o World Help Child Sponsorship Program
P.O. Box 501
Forest, VA 24551

You do so much for your sponsored child already. You provide essentials like food, educational opportunities, and medical care. You give hope for a better future.

But that personal touch is just as important.

Think about your own family. You cook and clean so they have a healthy meal to eat and a comfortable space to come home to. More than likely, you buy them a birthday gift or two, as well.

These are all sweet gestures, but what makes these relationships even better is communication. Talking with your kids over dinner. Calling your mom. Sending a “get well” text to your friend with the flu.

Your sponsored child wants to hear from you, too.

He or she probably isn’t exchanging valentines with classmates or having a Valentine’s Day party with chips and juice. So, a simple note from you could be the dose of encouragement that he or she needs.

By sending a valentine, you’ll let your sponsored child know that he or she is loved and is always in your thoughts and prayers … no matter how many miles separate you.

Thank you for sponsoring a child. Your love and support are transforming his or her life forever.
