Will someone please check and see if Ana Yareth's center received the gift we sent last year? I don't want to request that they write a letter I just want to make sure they got it.

Hi Adam! I'm sorry you haven't heard from Ana yet regarding the incredibly generous gift that you and Brittany sent to she and her family in October. Rest assured that our records show she and her family did receive it! Thank you for your grace with not expecting a letter but we certainly want you to know how they were able to be blessed by your gift. I also see that you're due for another letter from her anyways. I sent an inquiry to our office in Colombia this morning to double check that they did receive it as our records say, and while they're verifying this, I requested that she write you a thank you letter regarding how it was used.

What is center gift about and how is the donation used? If a sponsor sends a center gift then does the center know whose sponsor sent the gift? Do you also get a thank you letter from the project along with the photo?

Hey Jenny, a center gift goes to your sponsored child's center and they can use it for building improvements or whatever they need at the center. You can send up to $2,000 a year for a center gift. I'm sure there's a minimum but I don't know what it is. The center knows who sent the gift and, when we sent one, the director sent us a letter with a photo of what they purchased.

Thanks. Adam! Do you know if the children get to know whose sponsor sent or if your child knew that you sent a center gift? ;)

Jenny, Center Gifts are for the whole center. Because they are not specific to that child, and the center staff handle the gift, we do not typically share which child's sponsor sent the gift. That said, there is always a possibility that the child will find out.
