Letters to sponsored friends translate into smiles

Did you know that every year, we process more than 1 million letters from sponsored friends to their sponsors?

That’s tremendous cause for celebration! Behind every letter is a special story and friendship that we treasure.

Here are three sponsored children in El Salvador who recently received letters from their sponsors. Their smiles say it all.

CFCA sponsored child Norma in El SalvadorNorma is 8 years old. She enjoys attending school and playing with her friends. Photos, like the one Norma is holding from her sponsor, are a fun, meaningful and practical way to deepen ties between sponsors and sponsored friends.

CFCA sponsored child Veronica in El SalvadorVeronica, at 10 years old, writes frequently to her sponsor. They share many things in common. For example, their favorite cartoon is “Tom and Jerry.”

CFCA sponsored child Luis in El SalvadorLuis is 10 years old. He loves to play soccer. Here he is, reading aloud from his sponsor’s letter.

Developing a sense of friendship and mutual encouragement is one of the most rewarding aspects of sponsorship through CFCAís Hope for a Family program.

Don’t wait – write a letter to your sponsored friend today!

    1. Hi Mary,

      You can write letters to your sponsored child by using our eLetter feature, which can be accessed from the ìMy Sponsorshipsî page when you log in to the CFCA website. This feature allows you to write an online letter to your sponsored friend, and you can choose from several different backgrounds that are updated to reflect the current season and significant holidays.

      When you click on the submit button, we will email your letter as a PDF file to the project office that serves your sponsored friend, and the office staff can then print the letter.

      Because the letter will still need to be translated and hand delivered, it may still take several weeks to reach your sponsored friend, but it guarantees the letter will reach the project and saves on the cost of postage.

      (If you havenít created a username and password yet, just click on the ìRegisterî button from the ìManage My Accountî page to get started.)

      Thanks so much! If you have any questions regarding eLetters or writing to your sponsored friend, feel free to contact our Sponsor Services team at (800) 875-6564 from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. Mondays through Fridays or at mail@cfcausa.org.
