Can i send extra money to my child? I understand we cannot send toys, etc but would love to give extra as a small gift. My goal is to write once a month with photos via the web site. i also will want to send something for his birthday.

First of all, Sally, I want to thank you for taking time to write to your sponsor child! It makes him feel so special to get letters from you and I am sure that they encourage him.

And yes! You can send a monetary gift. On average, it takes 2-3 months for it to reach them.

Here's what you can send -

Birthday Gift $10-$100
General Gift $10-$100
Family Gift $25-$1,000

Also, when your sponsored child completes Compassion's program, you may send them a Final Graduation Gift between $10-$2,000.

To give a gift online, go to your account and click on "My Sponsorships." Then select the child you wish to give a gift to. Then to the right of their photo, click the "additional Giving." There you can choose what amount and which type of gift.
