Please do!

Participate: Any Christian who has a word of encouragement to share with God’s precious children may participate.

Have Fun: Programs or parties for letter writing are a fun way to connect with fellow believers. It is a great way for the children or youth to get together and do something productive and effective, but fun. And there’s no pressure to be impressive in your card-making. Just heartfelt.

Uplift:
I believe in you!
You are amazing!
I’m praying for you.
You are a brave person.
May God bless you.

Include Scripture: Write an encouraging scripture verse to give them hope or to remind them of God’s promises to His children. (suggestions below)

Pray for Them: If God moves you to do, so please pray a prayer over the letter for whichever child receives it. Pray for a good future for them and that they become a mighty man/woman of God.

There Are Rules

Jesus Only: Please do not make denominational references. We only want to promote Jesus and the hope that He brings.

No Additional Contact: Please do not put any personal information such as addresses, email addresses, phone numbers or your last name.

Be Cheerful: Please do not reference their poor circumstances or how hard life is for them. This is about encouragement for a brighter future and personal growth.
