Hi! I start my new career this Monday and I'm so excited to be able to sponsor my girls again.
One of my girls birthday is Oct 29, another Dec 8... I will not be able to send their bday or Christmas gifts until November. Will this be acceptable?

Jenn, how exciting! Congratulations on your new career! Gifts are definitely optional and will be a huge blessing if and when you are able to give them. If you are able to send them in November, that would be great, but we understand if you are not able to as well. Do we need to change anything on your account at this time?

I think you guys have me covered in October, and I've really appreciated not having to give up my girls during an already stressful time. Thank you so much for all you do daily.

Oh! Actually.... how would you recommend I send them... one gift for each holiday or lump sum them and explain to the kiddos?

Hi Jenn! It depends on how you want to do it. All birthday gifts go directly to the children you are sponsoring. Christmas gifts work differently though. Compassion pools the funds sponsors give towards Christmas so that we are able to purchase a gift for every child in the program, your girls included. If you would like to put money towards the gifts they will receive from that fund, I recommend sending the gifts separately so that they get gifts specially for both celebrations :).
