5 tips to becoming a life-changing letter writer

By Kay Yoke

In our age, letter writing seems old-fashioned. But, for Maya, Kay’s old-school traditional letter-writing transformed her life.

Here are Kay’s simple tips on being a letter-writer.

1. Schedule a time to write. Put a reminder on your calendar. Sponsored children often write back when they receive a letter from their sponsor.

2. Find a place to write: your kitchen table, or attic office where you will not be distracted.

3. Keep it simple and short. Write as if you’re writing to your niece, nephew, or grandchild.

4. Make it special. Including a simple and inexpensive gift is a great way to show you are thinking of your child. *Note* Send gifts that fit into an A4 sized envelope, taking into consideration weight, tax and delivery costs.

5. Make your letter heartfelt: encourage, praise, love, and pray.
