You sure can! Whether you’re writing on our website or from your My Compassion account, you can attach one photo to your letter. If you would like to send additional photos, you can just send a blank letter and we will attach it to the original letter.

On My Compassion, the “Upload a Photo” button is in the top left corner of the message area. On the website, there is a blue button in the bottom left corner.

When you write a letter online, we send it digitally to the Country Office. From there, Compassion staff translate, print and deliver the letters (and photos) to your child. We are unable to send emails directly to your sponsored child but our online letter writing process is the next best option.

Yes. Writing online means your letter bypasses our local postal service and will already be in digital format so we can forward it directly to the Country Office. From there, Compassion staff translate, print and deliver the letters (and photos, if included) to your child.

Can I write to my sponsored child?

March 19, 2013 10:49 am

Yes. We encourage sponsors to write to their sponsored child, to include photos and cards and encourage them in their spiritual journey. Children love to receive letters and cherish them. They also love to write to their sponsors and to pray for them. Children are required to write to their sponsors a minimum of two letters a year.

To send a letter, card, paper play set or poster to your sponsored child through our website click here.

What are my donation method options?

March 19, 2013 10:49 am

Donations can be made by pre-authorized withdrawal (bank account or credit card), internet banking, telephone banking, Interac online, cheque or money order. These withdrawals can be made monthly or annually. Pre-authorized donations are safe, easy and convenient. Pre-authorized withdrawal from your bank account is our preferred method of payment, as it saves Compassion hundreds of thousands of dollars each year in transaction fees. Automatic withdrawals can be setup through our website by completing the Update Your Information form or by calling our office. Cheques made out to Compassion Canada will be accepted, as will money orders. Unfortunately deposits can not be made directly into Compassion’s bank account.
