Sponsoring a child and keeping in touch with them is a real joy. But until recently, sending letters or emails, changing giving records, and tracking project updates meant visiting several parts of our web site, calling us, or sifting through World Vision mailings.
Our team thought: Wouldn’t it be great to put all of this material online, all in once place?
So we launched www.myworldvision.org last fall with all sorts of information about your sponsored children and their communities.
Now, you can:
- Instantly send an email to your sponsored child.( It’s easy -- we’ve even included samples to give you suggestions.)
- Check out new photos and updates from your child's community.
- Find out how to send a special gift or package to your sponsored child.
- See your giving history, change your payment method, and manage your World Vision account all in one place (for all donors, including sponsors).
- Learn facts about your sponsored child’s country, its history and challenges.
- And much more!
Many of you have tweeted, emailed, and called to give us your opinion:
WOOOOHOOOO!!!!!! Thank you so much for the new website with the ability to email my World Vision child! Also I have been sending the World Vision cards and such for years and had NO idea I could also send small gifts on my own!!! It was made VERY clear on the site with ideas and all!!! THANK YOU!!!!

The new sponsor site -- My WorldVision -- really helps me learn more about the world my sponsored children live in. I love the extra information about each community, especially where it shows the progress World Vision is making in working with the families who live there…I love this new site, so much information! How wonderful!
I am so impressed with the new email set up for writing to our sponsored kids!!! It is so-o-o-o easy to use!!! YAY! No more forms to fill out with all the account info…the email is ready to write with the click of a button!!! THANK YOU!!!
I have not been on your site for a bit. I am so happy with the changes since last time. I can email my child more easily, I can see information about my child’s area, and find out how to send things and visit her. Thank you for making the site more user-friendly. So happy to be part of World Vision for all these years.
