It’s been awhile since I’ve shared a letter template, and in all honesty, it’s not for lack of trying. I’ve had a bit of crafter’s block when it comes to dreaming up new templates – and while I’m gearing up to share more templates for older sponsored kids, coming up with ideas is no easy feat. So, friends, if you’ve got an idea for a template that you’d love to see, please leave a comment or drop me an email and share your inspiration. I’m always looking for new themes and for ideas that will help sponsors write more often and with less anxiety.

This time, I’m sharing a pretty generic letter template that, in my mind, would be perfect for an older boy. However, the template is by no means limited to any one group. Feel free to use it as you need it!

You can download it from scribd here. 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. 

As I said before, I’m working on turning several of my existing templates into “older” versions.  If you have one that you’d like to see created for an older child, please let me know. Right now I’m just going back through them in a random way, updating whatever speaks to me at the moment. Also, I’d love it if you’d share any suggestions for new templates with me (for whatever age children).

*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.

It’s a chilly 5°F today, and I’m definitely feeling like a giant icicle. I was planning on creating an older-child version of my Easter template, but this snow themed template seems much more appropriate.

Please remember to write your child’s name, child’s number, your name, and your sponsor number on the letter. I accidentally left out the blanks for those on this template.

Free Letter Writing Template: My Family

Today, I am joining Michelle from Blogging from the Boonies as she posts a week long series on getting entire families involved in Compassion Sponsorship and the relationship between sponsored children and their sponsors. This week, in keeping with the theme of family, I thought it would be fun to roll out a new template where children and adults can share more about their loved ones.

Like my previous templates, this one can be used by any sponsor, young or old, to write their sponsored child. It would be a great tool to enable you to empower your own children to write their own notes to your sponsor child(ren), and would be a fantastic addition to any letter you send. However, it may not be the best option If you are working with very young children. Instead, I’m going to point you toward Jessica’s awesome template that is PERFECT for preschoolers.

 

If you don’t have a Scribd account, and don’t want to register, you can view the template here on Google Docs.

Be on the lookout for several new templates over the next few weeks, and as always, if you’ve got an idea for one, please let me know!

 

All About Me: A Free Letter Writing Template for Kids

I’m continuing my series of copy-able letters to sponsored children. To read more about this series, click here

Today, I am so very thankful that Sharon shared my letter writing templates over on OurCompassion, which led Michelle from Blogging from the Boonies to reach out to me about creating a few new letter templates for children to use when writing Compassion Sponsored kids. I must admit, I don’t frequent Our Compassion as much as I should (I blame it on a picky log-in system). But I did pop over after I “talked” to Michelle on facebook, and am now super excited to share this new template with all of you. This “All About Me” template is based off of an idea that Michelle suggested; and includes an area for a drawing, as well as several fill in the blank type questions.

Also, I wanted to point out that there is a link on the main menu (at the top of the page) that will list all of the templates I’ve created so far. Hopefully that will make them easier to find and use 🙂

It’s finally starting to look a tiny bit like spring around here, and I am beyond excited. To celebrate the beginning of the longer days and warmer weather, I whipped up a happy & sunny letter template. Hope you find it as cute as I do – and more importantly, I hope it inspires you to write your sponsored kids 🙂

Earth day is in April, and quickly approaching – especially in terms of letter-sending time. So, what better way to celebrate than with a new template? Ladies & gents, for your viewing (& sending) pleasure, I present to you: an earth themed letter writing template! Not only is it great for Earth Day, but it is generic enough to be used all year-round. Enjoy!

Monday is Martin Luther King, Jr. Day here in the states. I realize that this letter template is much too late to make it to your sponsored child before the holiday, but, I really feel like this is something that could be sent at any time of the year.

I’m not really sure why the template is showing up sideways. I’m working on it, but for now I really wanted to get it published. So here you go:
