Can I use my own stationery or send my own card?

You can write using the specific letter writing paper we send to you or online through your myCompassion account. You’ll notice that the letter paper we send you has a barcode on that’s specific to you and your child. If you choose to use your own letter paper, that’s fine, but please attach a sheet of the barcoded paper to help us process your letters quickly.

Alternatively, remember to include your sponsored child’s name and both your reference number and your sponsored child’s on your letter. If you decide to send your own card, please leave it unsealed so it can be easily translated. If you need more writing paper, please email info@compassionuk.org or call 01932 836490.
