Q: I’m all out of mailing labels. Can I get them emailed to me?
A: One of the most common requests heard in Sponsor Services is for more mailing labels.
Sponsors may know they can contact Sponsor Services to request more labels, but what many don’t know is that we can email the mailing labels as well.
Sending the mailing labels by email has a number of benefits. Aside from being much faster than regular mail (almost instantaneous), using email helps reduce the amount of paper being used and is a more eco-friendly choice. It’s also more cost-effective, as it saves postage and material costs. You can also save the email and reuse the mailing information whenever you write your sponsored friend.
Contact our Sponsor Services team at (800) 875-6564 or firstname.lastname@example.org to request mailing labels by email.
When you were a kid, how far did you travel to get to school? Perhaps you walked a few blocks, rode your bike or went to the end of your street to wait for a school bus. Sponsored friends Mary Rose and Jovelyn live in a rural part of the Philippines. The girls and their classmate walk 3 kilometers to school each day. That’s a bit less than 2 miles. While the distance isn’t far, the path they travel has some unique obstacles.
A lot can happen in an instant. The phone rings, a dog wags his tail, a frown turns into a smile, someone clicks “like” on Facebook.
A life changes.
Watch this video, “In an Instant,” to see how the simple click of a button can change the life of a child.
Then, share it on Facebook or Twitter and help create that change.
