Are you a new Compassion sponsor? Or have you added a new sponsored child to your family?
One of the first letters we receive from our Compassion sponsored children is an "All About Me" page where they share some of their favorite things. I loved receiving Emerson's first letter this past week. Emerson is our newest Compassion child. We added him to our Compassion family when I was in El Salvador in February. I didn't have a chance to meet him while I was there, but I am looking forward to getting to know him through letter writing.
In his letter he shared that his favorite game is soccer, his favorite food is beef and chicken, and his favorite color is blue.
So I thought, what if I create a page sharing some of my favorite things to send to him?
Using Canva, I created this page to send to Emerson:
The page was fairly easy to create. I chose a background and selected a color that I liked. Then I started adding boxes and changed the opacity so the boxes ended up being a light blue. Next, I added photos and text to the boxes with some of my favorite things. Then I saved the creation as a jpeg which makes it easy to add to an online Compassion letter.
When you write a letter or send a card to your sponsored child, you can upload a full page 'photo' like this to your letter or card.
Our sponsored children want to know more about us and what are lives are like where we live. I sure hope Emerson enjoys learning some of these things about me.
