Is it at all possible to find out whether the children I correspond with receive birthday/family gifts from their financial sponsors? The children have upcoming birthdays, and I would like the opportunity to send them a gift. 

With very best wishes,

I understand that I can go to and write a letter there, upload photos there, and the electronic letter will get to one of my sponsored children.  Where on your site is this "letter writing" tool?

You need to log into your account to get to the letter writing tool. When you log in, on the left of your account page, look down the list and click on "Write my Child" and it will pop up a list of your sponsored kids and you can pick which one and write them a letter. It will prompt you from start to finish! Once you get it, it is super simple. I love it!
Hope this helps!

I was wondering how to send gifts to my correspondent kids? There isn't an option that I can see.

Anna, you need to call Compassion to send a gift to a correspondent child. There is no way to do it online.
