Here are some unique ways that you can connect with your sponsored child.

Did you know that you’re part of a group of over 500,000 Canadians who are improving the world we live in, one child at a time? It’s true. And it’s a pretty special thing: connecting with a child in Bangladesh, South Africa, Columbia and other developing countries and inviting them to become a part of your global family.

And while trading photos and letters is exciting, not to mention the memories you’ve made, we’ve got something a little extra for the child who is so close to your heart. Here are four fantastic ways that you and your family can connect with your sponsored child:

1. Email your sponsored child
Letter writing is one of the easiest ways to build a meaningful relationship with the child you support. What’s not so easy? The posting of said letter. Most of us don’t have a stash of international stamps laying around, right? Well, now you can email your sponsored child instead.

It’s super easy. Just log into your My World Vision account, type up your letter, hit submit and our staff will print, translate and deliver your letter for you. 

2. Visit your sponsored child
Imagine meeting the child you’ve been helping and actually seeing how you’ve help to improve their life and grow their future. Wow! Now, you can make this dream a reality. With a little planning and some help from World Vision staff you can have the trip of a lifetime, visiting your sponsored child and his family.

3. Wish your sponsored child a happy birthday.
Who doesn’t love being wished a happy birthday? Your sponsored child is no exception. This year, you can make their birthday extra special by sending a personalized birthday greeting. Want to really show how much you care? Write your greeting in your sponsored child’s language!

4. Send a special gift to your sponsored child’s community.
This item is perfect for those times when you want to give a little something extra to your sponsored child and their community. Your gift of books, toys, sports equipment and more will leave your sponsored child and her friends delighted and overjoyed.​​​​​​​​
