Hello Kelli! What a wonderful idea for you to give your parents a sponsored child as a gift for Christmas :). We can certainly make this happen for you. What I would suggest is making two accounts. One account would be set up as a financial account for you, while the other would be set up as a correspondent account for your parents so that they are able to send and receive letters from the child they choose. The best way to make this happen would be for you all to find a child to sponsor online. Make sure you set up the account in your name with your card information. Once the sponsorship is processed, please email us with your parents names, phone, email, and address, and we will get a correspondent account set up for them :). You can email our team at socialmedia@compassion.com. Yes, you can pay for an entire year, which would be a total of $456. Let me know if you have more questions!
