Here are Compassion’s mailing guidelines:
Because of strict mailing and customs regulations in the various countries where Compassion works, we cannot send our field offices items that exceed 8-1/2" x 11" and 1/4" thick.Items need to be paper or cardstock, we cannot send plastic, foam, metal etc.
So, I snapped a picture of just a few of the items that my Mother-in-law brought us.
Items pictured are: Color Your Own Child of God Crosses, Noah’s Ark Sticker Scenes, Cupcake Boxes with Crosses, Continents and Animals Make a Sticker Scenes, Cross Fuzzy Pictures, Wreath of Jesus’ Life, Cross Gift Bags, He Lives Bags, Magic Scratch Postcards and Cross Bookmarks.
Items from Oriental Trading Company come in packs of twelve, most times. If you don’t have local sponsor friends to split the packs, you can always send extras to your Compassion Child and ask them to share with their family members or other children in the project. Remember, you do not have to send your letters in a business sized envelope! We always send our Compassion packages in big manila envelopes!

I hope you all have a great Resurrection Sunday!
