Correspondence

The sponsored children enjoy receiving emails, letters, cards, and photographs from you!

Many children and families have been encouraged in their faith through their sponsorship relationship. Therefore, we encourage you to write your sponsored child to provide them the opportunity to get to know you!  Communication is initiated by you sending an email to your sponsored child (via Lifeline) and then they will respond to you. 


Correspondence options:

 

Email your sponsored child

This is the fastest and best option to stay connected with your sponsored child! 

    • Email your letter to This e-mail address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it .   Feel free to attach photos and scanned cards in your emails!

    • To ensure your child receives your email, please include the following in your email:

      • Your complete name & your Lifeline AN (account number)

      • Sponsored children(s) full names & child ID number

    • Your child will receive the email within about 1 month.  Translators will read the email to your child and an email reply is sent back to Lifeline (for the permanent files) and then onto you. You'll also receive a photo of your child receiving your email! 

    • You may send an email once each quarter throughout the school year. (note: it is difficult to locate the students during summer break.) The following are the children's typical school year:

      • Haiti: September - May

      • Honduras: February - October 

      • Navajo Nation: August - May



Hand-written letters/cards 

These are a great way to encourage your child when they are included in the gifts that you personally send through Lifeline.

    • Include letters, cards, and/or photographs with your gift package mailed to Lifeline, according to the gift deadlines.  Visit Sending Gifts for details about gift packages.

    • Gifts to Haiti & Honduras may take up to six months to reach your child, so keep this in mind when sending birthday cards, Christmas cards, etc.

    • Your letters/cards are translated to your sponsored child during their gift distribution.
