I recently sent both my sponsor children gifts. I wanted to know if I’m notified they received it. Also, when should I be receiving updated pictures of both of them?
Thank you!!

Hi Betsy! Thanks so much for your post and for reaching out! Whenever you send a gift of at least $20, then you will receive a thank-you note from your child for that gift within six months of sending it. If the gift is at least $60, then you will also receive a photo of your child with the gift they were able to purchase! I see that you sent gifts to your children in September, so please let us know if you have not received a thank-you note from your children by the end of March.

In regards to their photo updates, each child receives a photo update approximately every two years. I see that Jhorlan's last update was in October of 2018, so you should expect an updated photo of him by October 2020. Nahom's last update was in July of 2018, so you should expect his update by July 2020!
