Write to Your Child
Thank you for taking the time to send a letter to your sponsored child. These communications of love are so important to the children. Given their backgrounds of extreme poverty, suffering, trauma and abuse, it is reassuring and uplifting to know that they have a sponsor who loves them and takes the time to send them some words of encouragement and prayer.
You may use the following form to send a letter to your special child. Your letter will be printed, translated if necessary, and delivered to your sponsored child. To ensure quick delivery please include your name, your child’s first name and also their correspondence number. (The correspondence # can be found on the original bio or a recent update.)
If you would prefer to send your child a card or handwritten letter, you may do so by mailing your correspondence to:
Angels Of Hope
C/O Food For The Poor Inc
6401 Lyons Road
Coconut Creek, FL 33073
(include child name and correspondence #)
For slightly more than a dollar a day, you will forever change the life of a young child or teenager. Please become an angel for a child who needs love, hope and an opportunity for a better future.
Every child is a precious gift from God – especially vulnerable children who long to know that they are not forgotten. They need angels here on earth to watch over them and ensure their needs are met.
That’s why the Angels Of Hope program was created. For many years, big-hearted donors like you have supported the most vulnerable children in the Caribbean and Latin America; fueled by the idea that every child needs and deserves love, support and guidance.
The program reaches thousands of precious children in eight countries. Compassionate donors like you support Angels Of Hope children’s homes in El Salvador, Grenada, Guatemala, Guyana, Haiti, Honduras, Jamaica and Nicaragua.
Through dedicated care and prayer, the course of these precious children’s futures are changed, releasing them from devastating poverty and helping to mold them into healthy adults.
Will I be able to correspond with my child?
Corresponding with your child is a special way to build that lasting bond and relationship. Your sponsored child will correspond with you twice a year, and you will have an opportunity to write back at those times. Please include your child’s first name* and correspondence # on all letters, cards, etc. to ensure they are delivered to the right child.
Children who are too young to write will send a handprint or drawing. Your sponsored child will eagerly anticipate a letter or any form of correspondence from you. Even sending photographs of your family life or a postcard with a caring note can lift your child’s spirits and become a meaningful experience for him or her. If you prefer, you can submit a letter to your child online at: www.foodforthepoor.org/write.
* Using only the child’s first name protects the identity and adds security for underage children.
Can I send gifts to my sponsored child?
As part of your Angels Of Hope sponsorship, the children’s home where your sponsored child lives will help celebrate your child’s birthday as well as Christmas — two special occasions in every child’s life. You can help celebrate your sponsored child’s Christmas and birthday by sending a donation to make these events even more festive at your child’s home. (We’ll send you reminders at the appropriate times each year.)
Please do not send packages or any physical gifts such as toys, stuffed animals, books, etc. These types of items incur additional costs to deliver. In addition, sending packages in the mail internationally can incur customs fees that the children’s home would have to pay before they can collect the gift.
You may send additional gifts to your sponsored child, but they should be small, paper items attached to your letter that will fit into the envelope. Please include child’s first name and correspondence # on all additional gifts. For example, bookmarks, cards, stickers, pictures of you and your family, etc., are fun, easy to send and help forge the bond between you and your sponsored child.
