Hello Brian and Celeste! Yes, you can absolutely give a family gift to help your child's family during the Christmas season. You can do so by logging into your online account on www.compassion.com and clicking on "Additional Giving" on the left side of the screen. You'll have the option of sending three different gift types. Choose "Family Gift" and the amount you wish to send. Though it won't be designated specifically as a Christmas gift, it will arrive around the holiday and the family will understand that you meant it to be a Christmas gift.
