A Few of My Favorite Things: A Letter Template for Sponsors

I’m continuing my series of copy-able letters to sponsored children. To read more about this series, click here

This time, instead of sharing the letter, I thought it might be fun to create a template that you could print off and fill out yourself 🙂

This template covers “favorites” and would be a great early letter to send. I hope you like it, and I hope it makes your life easier!   Of course, I can’t mention my template without mentioning Jessica’s. Her’s is great if you have young kids that want to participate in the writing process.


If you don’t have a Scribd account, and don’t want to register, you can view the template here on Google Docs.

Here’s the one that I printed to send to my Ecuadorian girl, Emily. (I don’t have a color printer at home, so I added some bright colors with colored pencils. Whatever works 🙂 )

Template to Emily "Favorites"

I’m considering creating several of these easy-to-fill-out templates for sponsors. That way, if you only had a few minutes, you could print it off, fill it out, and mail it in will minimal headache…

Let me know what you think – because comments are some of my favorite things!

~ ps, want to pin this template to Pinterest? just use the “pin-it” button at the bottom of this post. Easy Peazy!

      Glad you like the templates 🙂 Bummer about the booklets – I’ve been hearing that Compassion’s been having trouble sending stapled items through, maybe if it were bound with small string (like the album they describe in the link you included) they would go through…what do you think?

    Love it! Looks like an excellent amount of space for the questions asked — not too little, not too much — and good questions with just enough meatiness to them for introductory relationship-building. Thanks for making this. This is the page I landed on from a search (for something a little different, admittedly, but that’s the internet for ya) and it’s an old post, but I dared to hope and found you’ve posted more since then. Woo hoo!

    BTW, when clicking the “templates” tag, all the posts get repetitive with the little message about not wanting to encourage abandonment of letter-writing… and it’s totally worth the repetition. (My hope is to use these during those first 4-6 months of mostly one-sided letter-writing until we get a bit of relationship developed and can write from that relationship.)

    And a quick question from the peanut gallery of inexperience — around what age range of child would you recommend using these for?
