Write your sponsored child

Tell them about Canada and send them pictures. You don’t have to write a long letter; they’re happy to know you’re thinking of them.

Writing the letter

begin with your child’s name and I.D. number.

share words of encouragement.

be mindful of asking sensitive questions, and avoid writing about luxuries your child may never experience.

keep in mind that all letters will be monitored in keeping with our Child-protection policy.

Mailing the letter

mail flat gifts such as photographs, stickers, postcards or other similar items.

avoid sending cash and gifts, which could be stolen or incur hefty import fees.

send letters to the international mailing address noted in your Welcome Package.

use international postage to ensure your letter reaches its destination.
