Hi Mary! Thank you for your generosity and desire to bless your sponsored child with special gifts. Compassion has guidelines regarding the total gifts that can be sent to a child each calendar year in order to keep the child/ family from becoming a target due to jealousy and to make sure they are not becoming dependent on the gifts. Regrettably, as a sponsor, you may send your child only up to two gifts up to $100 each, one for their birthday and one as a general gift. However, you are able to send gifts to your child's family to benefit the whole family. A family gift can be given three or four times each calendar year, from $25 up to $1000 total.
