I sent my child a Christmas gift nearly as soon as we were connected in hopes she would get it in time. However, on the app it is still asking me if I want to send my first gift. The $25 gift cleared by account on 11.15.18. Did it get fully processed? Will she get it?
And yes, your child will get a Christmas gift. I've already got a thank you for one child who had their Christmas party and received a gift of a backpack and candy. (It was probably so early because this center is particularly remote and they have to make special trips in and out to do the letter writing/bring gifts)
