As you might remember, our family sponsors two World Vision children. Lenah from Kenya and Vinicius from Brazil. Throughout the year we send them letters and cards and little gifts. I especially try to send something around their birthdays. The trick is, we can only send 6x9 inch envelopes. No big packages or boxes. Lenah just turned 9 in August. She's easy to shop for. Stickers, pencils, notepads, headbands, necklaces... There are tons of little things that would make a 9 year old little girl smile. And Vini's birthday is coming up in November. He will be turning 15. I have no idea what to send him. None at all. Any ideas?

Inflatable beach ball or something similar? for some reason that is all I can come up with.

Baseball cards? Those may be a little culture-specific though. Comic books maybe... If you can find them in Portugese. Yeah, that's a tough one.

Thanks, girls. Both good ideas. I'll let you know what ends up going in the package.
