You may recall that I struggled writing the first letter to our Compassion child, Happyness. This time, it was much easier and I finally got to include everything that I wanted to send in the first letter…including a photo collage!
I thought it would be a good way to 1) put a face with a name 2) serve as a quick “get-to-know-us” since we added our ages, jobs and favorite activities.
If you are handy with Photoshop, it’s really quite simple to make. I’m sure you could also make something similar in Word. I like using Photoshop because I can save it as a PSD file then make changes as needed for the future when ages and activities and photos are sure to need changing.
I printed this as an 8×10 for Happyness. I also printed smaller versions (4×6) and changed “We love you, Happyness!” to “Jesus Loves You!” I’ve used some of the small prints for our Operation Christmas Child boxes.
What kind of fun things have you included in your letters or shoe boxes?
