I sent over $60 to my child sabitha, so I was wondering if I will get The picture in the mail or through email or how will I receive it? Also, do you know if it is on the way or not?

Hi Anna! You will receive the photo for a gift of $60 or more in the mail with the thank you letter for the gift. It typically takes two to three months for both gifts and letters to be sent so a thank you letter is delivered within six months of when the gift was sent. For the gift that you sent for Sabitha's mom in November, they have likely already received this gift and may have already written a thank you letter for you. However, you will receive this letter and photo by the end of May. That was such a generous gift! Thank you for blessing this family in such a tangible way!

Emailing the photo would be clearer and more cost efficient. Can it be so? Thanks.

Hi Chak! This is a great idea that we're looking into for the future :). We currently don't have the capabilities to send all gift photos electronically to our sponsors because the photos are mailed to our office along with the letter. Not all of our countries would be able to scan pictures into our USA office. Because we are unable to scan and email letters from children to their sponsors currently, the photos are mailed along with the letters. We also don't want to send photos without the letters because the letter explains the attached photo. Sponsor's also enjoy having the physical and original photo that they're able to hang up or keep in their records :). It is fun to have that tangible letter that you know was taken of your child at their home!
