Your advocacy for children will have a greater impact if your members of Congress know who you are. This Christmas, send them a greeting card to introduce yourself, encourage them to draw near to Christ, and begin a relationship you can build on throughout the year.
We've created a Christmas card you can use – follow the steps below to get started!
Step 1: Download and print our World Vision card by clicking the photo to the right. Be sure to print three copies – you have one House representative and two U.S. Senators who represent you!
You can also add a personal touch by including a photo of you, your family, or a meeting you've had with your member of Congress.
Step 2: Write a personal note in each card. Thank them for their service and include a written prayer, a Scripture verse, or a word of encouragement. We also encourage you to identify the faith leaning of your congressperson and address the note accordingly! (Avoid politically divisive comments – you'll have plenty of time later in the year to talk about where you stand on issues!)
Step 3: Locate the nearest district office address for each of your representatives. You can use our handy search tool below, if you need help!
Step 4: Put your cards in the mail!
