Mail Call Monday: An Independence Day Letter Template

I’m continuing my series of copy-able letters to sponsored children. To read more about this series, click here. To view other templates, click the “Sponsor Letter Templates” link under the main blog header (or here, if reading in a feed).  Want to pin this template to Pinterest? just use the “pin-it” button at the bottom of this post. Easy Peazy!

Since it’s Memorial Day here in the States, and that means the mail won’t be running – and since I haven’t gotten any letters from my sponsored kids this past week – I thought we might be overdue for a new letter template.

So in keeping with the Memorial Day/Honoring Service theme, this one’s for Independence Day. (Sorry to my out of States viewers – If you’d like to see a difference country-specific template, please let me know, I’d be happy to create one!)

Until then, hope you all have a happy Monday! And a very special THANK YOU to all of our armed forces men and women and their families. Your service means more than you know.

If you do not have a free scribd account, and do not want to create one, you can view the template here on Google Docs.

Ideally, you should mail letters to your Compassion Sponsored children 2-3 months in advance of a holiday – I realize this template is a bit late, but I also think that it could be fun to fill it out on the holiday and send it with a couple of photos. Either way, you kids will love to hear from you – even if the letter is late (it won’t be late to them – it will be right on time, because it comes from you).

*Also, please note that I do not encourage you to abandon letter-writing and just send these templates. Instead, these are meant to be used as a guide in building your relationship with your sponsored kids. As you learn more about your child, it should become easier to write them without using the templates. Hopefully, these templates can be helpful in ‘kick-starting’ relationships or  sending short notes when you’re pressed for time or when your brain is tired.
