If I send my child a letter every two weeks, will they get the letters all in one package because you hold the letters for a time, or will she get them spread out over time. How often does Compassion send the letters to each area?

Compassion sends letters every Thursday to the country office. The project centers only get letters once a month. The leaders will travel to the country office to pick up the letters for this kids. However, most writing sponsors try to write twice a month.
God bless,

Lizzie is right, letters are shipped to the country office every Thursday. Depending on the project's location and calendar, they will pick up letters from the country office when they can, but at least once a month. For those projects nearest the office, they may choose to pick up letters more often.

I wrote to my child on line in October. I have not heard from her since before then. I also sent her a birthday donation and a christmas donation. It has been over 4 months since I have heard a peep from her.

Sara, I have been waiting 5 months to hear from one of my kids. I have sent many letters and packages and monetary gifts. I did find out that I am his 6th sponsor, so maybe he is not as excited about this sponsorship as I am, having been dropped so many times. Hoping we both hear from our kids soon!

Hello, Sara!
Compassion allows a six month grace period between letters from your child.
I hope you receive a letter really soon :)

Lizzie, since location is not shared publicly, there really isn't a way to find out. Sorry!
