When I found out about the correspondence program, I quickly asked to be a part of it.
The correspondence program is for cases where an individual or a business will financially sponsor a child but is not able to commit to regularly writing to their child. Correspondent sponsors step in and commit to writing to the child a minimum of 3 times per year. Although no financial commitment is required, a correspondent sponsor may want to give birthday, family or Christmas gifts to their assigned child.
This is in my opinion, a win-win situation for everyone involved. More children in the program can have their physical needs met through the financial sponsorship and as an added bonus, a relationship can be developed with the correspondent sponsor.
Terri from Compassion Canada assigned 2 children from Haiti for us to correspond with. Dayana is 11 years old and Edwin is 4 years old. This was the perfect match for our family of 2 girls and 1 boy.
