Over the summer my child told me that he was learning to play the keyboard and enjoying it. Later he wrote that he wasn’t practicing as much because he didn’t have a keyboard of his own. I know young boys interests change a lot and there are greater needs than a keyboard. However, I would love to consider sending him one if it’s something he is still Interested in. Is this even possible to do?

You can send a monetary gift and suggest that he use it to purchase a keyboard. However, if he has more pressing needs he and his family (with the help of Compassion staff) may choose to use the money for something else.

Hi Kayla! I appreciate that you are interested in purchasing a keyboard to help your sponsored child develop his talent further. As Kristen mentioned above, you can send a monetary gift for your child and include special instructions on this gift. This will let the staff know that you intend for the gift to be used for a keyboard for your child. However, like Kristen also mentioned, if the child decides that there is something he is in need of more than the keyboard, he will be able to use the gift for that instead.
