3 Things To Include In Your Christmas Card

Christmas cards

  1. The highlight of your year

Sharing your highlight of the year can give your sponsored child insight into your life as well as take them along for the journey. Did you welcome a new family member? Maybe you started a new job or moved house? However big or small, share a special moment from your year with your sponsored child.

For example: My favourite moment this year was finding out I was going to be an aunty. What was yours?

  1. How your family celebrates Christmas

Christmas is celebrated in different ways around the world. For example, in rural Mexico some families carve radishes into nativity scene figures! However you celebrate, your sponsored child will enjoy hearing about your plans for Christmas Day.

For example: On Christmas Day, my family and I will attend church together and then spend the afternoon at the beach. How do you celebrate Christmas?

  1. Your prayer for the year ahead

Share a prayer you have for your sponsored child for the New Year. It can be something really simple.

For example: I pray that you will grow in your love for Jesus in the year ahead.

Thank you for writing to your sponsored child this Christmas. Your message reminds your sponsored child they are loved and cared for—and the cards often become treasured possessions kept for many years.

Send in your Christmas cards by 30 September OR write a special Christmas letter online today.
