Hello Aida, thank you so much for generously blessing Sandra with special monetary gifts for her birthday and Christmas. I am sure that she is very grateful for these gifts. I am sorry that you haven't received a letter from Sandra thanking you for the gifts you sent. I have sent an inquiry regarding the $30 birthday gift that you sent Sandra in June of 2017. The most recent gift you sent was in June of 2018 and it may take up to six months to receive a letter for this gift. However, I did remind them of this in my inquiry and asked that you do get a letter for this gift too. If you do not receive a letter about the most recent gift by the end of December, please let us know at that time. Christmas is handled differently than birthday gifts. We do this as a fund, so all the money that is donated for Christmas is pooled together and we buy all of the children gifts with these generous donations. They are given something that is equal in value and age appropriate, every child development center chooses what the children are given. We do let the children know that the gift they receive is a special gift from their sponsor. I would encourage writing Sandra a letter and asking her what she received at Christmas.
