The children eagerly await any correspondence from their Godparents. We strongly encourage letter writing as it helps create a special loving relationship. Even short notes will elicit a smile from your Godchild.

“The children are so excited when they receive cards and letters from their Godparents. Many of them carry pictures and letters with them at all times so they can show visitors that they have someone who cares enough to send them letters. It takes so little time for us to write short notes and send cards and pictures, but it means the world to them.”

Make the Most of Writing

Keep your letters simple. Write about things your Godchild will understand, such as family, pets, hobbies and activities. Encourage your child’s learning activities and special interests such as art, dance and sports. Click here for a list of useful phrases.

Emphasize things you have in common. As time goes on, you will discover shared interests, perhaps a favorite school subject or a love of music. Because of your significance in the life of the child you sponsor, these common interests will enhance the child’s self-esteem.

Please avoid discussing material possessions, which will emphasize differences.

Send pictures of yourself and your family. Such photographs will become prized possessions.
