Is there a way I can get more pictures of my sponsor child? Unless I misunderstood, it sounds like some people get different pictures of their child in the sponsor information packet but I only have one. Is there any way I can find more / different pictures of my sponsor child or do. Have to wait for the picture to update every 2 years?

Hi Lindsee! I'm so sorry for the confusion! We do not automatically provide extra pictures for sponsors in their information packet. We process information updates, including an updated photo, every two years for all of our children and we provide these full updates for our sponsors via mail and online automatically. However, for some of the children who have been in the program for longer than two years, we have previous update pictures. We keep up to one previous picture for each child. You are more than welcome to request that we send you the current and previous picture for your child via email. It looks like you sponsored child has only been in the program since 2013 so she does not have a previous picture. If you send a monetary gift to your child of $60 or more, we will send you a photo of your child with her gift. We would also be happy to print special posters, extra bookmarks, or wallet photos with your child's current picture on them if you request this.

Hi, would I be able to get an extra bookmark or two of my child Renata? I'd like to get one to use for my Bible study. :) 

Thanks!

Hi Andrew! As requested, I have ordered you bookmarks of Renata. Because our bookmarks are only available in multiples of 10, you will receive enough to pass out to the members of your bible study, or even family if you would like! Thank you so much for keeping her in your thoughts and prayers as you read :).

Hi Kate! As you requested, I have ordered you two wallet-size photos of Maria to be sent to you in the mail. :) The best way to make sure that your monetary gifts go through is to log into your "My Account" and click on "Tax Receipts and Giving History."

 

You will then be able to see a list of donations so far this year and even the history of a previous year. Please keep in mind that a new donation may not show up on your giving history for twenty-four hours. According to our records, you sent a $20 child gift and a $20 birthday gift to Maria in November.

Hi Kate! Although we don't have a way to let you know the date that it reaches your child; all gifts and letters take 2-3 months to be delivered. You can expect to receive a thank you letter in the mail from your child acknowledging your gift, 6 months after it's sent :).
