It’s Impress Your SPONSORED Kids time! I have to admit that it feels like we just did this a week ago, because it took me forever to finish our flags and get them mailed off. But, we did it! That’s what matters, right?
Today the kids are going to spend the night with my parents (one last Grandparent adventure before school starts!) while my husband and I are going to the movies, out to eat and yes, even spend the night at a hotel. The dinner is with a giftcard, we priceline.com-ed the hotel and basically, I’m going to sleep all day tomorrow. I can’t wait.
Anywhoo. The above paragraph is to give you my excuse for not making a big craft today for our sponsored kids. In lieu of a craft, I want to show you how both World Vision and Compassion make letter-writing easy for you.
Did you know you can email your sponsored kids?!
Here’s a mini World Vision emailing tutorial for you…
First sign into (or create an account for) My WorldVision. You’ll see all the info you’ll ever need about your child, your account and even your tax records! Look at how pretty my Mari Luz is! Now, to email her all I have to do is click SEND AN EMAIL.
That’s it! Then just type to your heart’s content and send! (Aren’t you glad I did a tutorial for you on this? I’m sure you would have never figured it out without me!)
What’s cool on the World Vision site is that they have some sample letters for you to use as inspiration–introducing yourself, thanking them for their letter and more. It’s really nice to have a guide, especially if you’re just beginning this new relationship!
Now, if you have a Compassion child, go to Compassion and sign into your account. It will bring up your Account Summary. Click WRITE MY CHILD…
Then your adorable children’s faces will pop up. Pick one to write…
And then follow the steps through a template, text and even the option to upload a picture!
It will be emailed and printed for your child. Isn’t that fun?
And seriously, how easy is that?!
So, your mission today is to EMAIL YOUR SPONSORED CHILD! It’s that easy! Leave a comment, or update on Facebook to let us know you’ve done it! You can even add a screenshot so we can all see how cute your sponsored child is!
