I’m continuing my series of copy-able letters to sponsored children. To read more about this series, click here. To view other templates, click the “Sponsor Letter Templates” link under the main blog header (or here, if reading in a feed). Want to pin this template to Pinterest? Just use the “pin-it” button at the bottom of this post. Easy Peazy!

It’s been awhile since I’ve shared a letter template, and in all honesty, it’s not for lack of trying. I’ve had a bit of crafter’s block when it comes to dreaming up new templates – and while I’m gearing up to share more templates for older sponsored kids, coming up with ideas is no easy feat. So, friends, if you’ve got an idea for a template that you’d love to see, please leave a comment or drop me an email and share your inspiration. I’m always looking for new themes and for ideas that will help sponsors write more often and with less anxiety.

This time, I’m sharing a pretty generic letter template that, in my mind, would be perfect for an older boy. However, the template is by no means limited to any one group. Feel free to use it as you need it!


You can download it from scribd here. If you do not have a free scribd account, and do not want to create one, you can view the template here on Google Docs. 

As I said before, I’m working on turning several of my existing templates into “older” versions.  If you have one that you’d like to see created for an older child, please let me know. Right now I’m just going back through them in a random way, updating whatever speaks to me at the moment. Also, I’d love it if you’d share any suggestions for new templates with me (for whatever age children).

*Please note that I do not encourage you to abandon letter-writing and just send these templates. Instead, these are meant to be used as a guide in building your relationship with your sponsored kids. As you learn more about your child, it should become easier to write them without using the templates. Hopefully, these templates can be helpful in ‘kick-starting’ relationships or  sending short notes when you’re pressed for time.
