I was wondering about the online process of additional gift giving. How long does it actually take for the child to receive the gift? I try to time it with birthdays and holidays. I know letters, etc. might take 2-3 months- same for monetary gifts?

Hi Rebecca! It takes roughly the same amount of time to send monetary gifts as it does for letters - two to three months. When we receive the online gift, we wait to wire it so that we can send it at the same time as the regular monthly support to save on wiring fees. The contribution has to be wired and converted into the local currency. When the gift is delivered, the student center staff will meet with your child or his or her family to discuss needs and wants and assist them in purchasing something that would most benefit them.
