When I do a Christmas donation does that money go towards my sponsored child? In my account it shows that his Birthday gift donation goes directly towards him. However when I donated to the Christmas gift fund it doesn't say if it goes to him specifically.

For Christmas only, all donations are pooled together and every child is bought a gift. This is so that unsponsored children are able to receive a gift at Christmas too. 
This is taken from the Christmas donation page:
"Here's How It Works:
  • Everyone in Compassion's program receives a gift! We combine all donations to purchase gifts of equal value so no one is left out. Your participation is so important to make this possible.
  • Presents are purchased locally and are given out at a special Christmas program celebrating the birth of Jesus!"
