Okay, so if you read my blog yesterday you’ll know about the Christmas Cards for Unsponsored Kids and how much they enjoy getting them (If you didn’t read it, then check it out here… http://murray.thelahnfamily.com/2010/11/what-is-christmas-like-for-an-unsponsored-child/).
So today we find out what Compassion had up their sleeve 😉 They’ve partnered with DaySpring cards to send customized cards to projects in Ecuador and for either $1.99 or $2.99 you can write to an unsponsored child and send them a Christmas Card. The card will be translated by Compassion translators so you don’t have to worry that you don’t speak the language. It can even be customized with pictures.
If you want to find out more about it, go to the Compassion blog site at http://blog.compassion.com/send-christmas-cards-a-christmas-card-drive-of-epic-proportions/ or to the “incourage.me” website at http://www.incourage.me/2010/11/a-christmas-card-drive-of-epic-proportions.html or directly to the DaySpring site at http://www.studiodayspring.com/cardbasket_view/?basket_id=160.
Our church is looking into other ways to accomplish the same thing by getting our various groups in the church writing cards or letters. If we get more information from Compassion Canada, we’ll let you know.
UPDATE: Compassion Canada has let me know that if you want to send cards directly to them they are currently sending cards down to Peru. In our case we will be likely sending a larger number of cards, and so we’re going to make them “generic” so that they don’t mention “Peru” in order that they can be sent to other countries as well.
If you want to participate, then you can send the cards to the following address:
Attn: Sheena Morrison
PO BOX 5591
London ON N6A 5G8
… and Sheena will see that they get to the un-sponsored kids!!
