Send Love

Your words have great value for your sponsored child and connecting with them can be a great encouragement as they work to build their future. And this Christmas, your prayerful words have the power to bring more hope than ever…

Children in Sri Lanka loved receiving cards from their sponsors last year! 

Use the letter writing template provided with your sponsored child’s latest letter – or use your own stationery, or a simple postcard or greeting card, as long as you leave a space for the translation!  And don’t forget to include your Supporter ID and Child ID so our team know where to forward your letters.

Please send your physical letters to:

Baptist World Aid Australia
Locked Bag 2200
North Ryde, NSW, 1670.

Please make sure your Christmas mail reaches us by the following deadlines: Friday 6 November 2020.

You can also write to your sponsored child online, by signing into (or creating) your supporter account. Not only will sending a digital letter give you the option of uploading photos… but it also helps us to keep our administration costs down. Thank you!

Letter writing tips
Culture in Australia
Share how your family is celebrating Christmas this year, but please don’t give religious advice as it can endanger lives and cause offence.
Share Interesting Facts
Write your sponsored child about Australian food and the Australian landscape. Describe Australian animals!
Your Favourite Activities
Write your sponsored child about what you do for fun. Tell them about special events at your church or in your community… and why you enjoy being involved.


Your Family
Write your sponsored child about your brothers, sisters, children, or grandchildren.
Your Pets
Write your sponsored child and tell them your pets’ names and what kind of animal they are.
Encourage them
Acknowledge this year has probably been hard for them too and let them know you’re sending prayers of peace and joy to their whole family.


We hope that these ideas help to inspire you as you write to your Sponsored Child.

And don’t forget that Baptist World Aid is a Child Safe Organisation… so you don’t need to worry about accidentally sending sensitive or inappropriate material to your sponsored child. Every letter is read to protect your (and your sponsored child’s) safety. Happy letter writing!

Don't forget...

Write your Supporter ID and Child ID on everything you send.
