While giving a gift can be a meaningful gesture, in many of the areas we work, sending gifts can cause hostility between the children in the community. So, we ask that you follow some simple guidelines when sending a gift to your sponsored child.
As a sponsor, the most meaningful gifts you can send are photos, letters and encouragement. But if you’d still like to send a little something extra, please consider things that are lightweight and small enough to fit into a standard #10 size envelope. Please also make sure the item has a value of less than $5 dollars.
- Paper dolls
- Paper puzzles
- Scrapbook items
For an item to fit into a standard #10 envelope, it must be no greater than:
- 6 – 1/8 inches in height
- 11 – ½ inches in length
- ¼ inch thick
- 3.5 ounces in weight
Please DO NOT send any of the following items as our staff won’t be able to deliver them:
- Food or Candy
*Please send no more than 6 items per mailing
