Hi, I gave family gift last month for my sponsored child.  I wanted to know if there was a message included with the gift and also approximately when the gift might arrive. Thanks!

Hi Beverly! I want to encourage you that we received your generous gift for Sanjay on November 3rd. Regrettably, there were no gift instructions on the gift. Thankfully, this gift has not yet been disbursed to your child's family. In saying this, I reviewed your account and see that you had been concerned about Sanjay's left eye and had hoped to help him. I manually made notes on your gift today specifying that you would like your gift to help in correcting the issues that Sanjay has with his eye. The project staff and family will be able to take this into consideration when they receive your gift. Please note that ultimately, your gift will be used for the greatest need for the family and they will make the final decision on how it is used.

If you had hoped to enter a different request on the gift you sent, please let me know and I will make changes before it is disbursed. It takes 2-3 months for your gift to reach your child and so he should receive it sometime in January. You will receive a thank you letter around the beginning of May letting you know how your gift was used. Thank you for your concern for Sanjay and choosing to bless he and his family in such a very tangible way!

Hi, Emily, I appreciate your help.  Actually I wanted to make sure the gift was not earmarked for anything.  I think maybe his family has other more pressing needs at this time.  I was thinking of helping with his eyes but I think I had better get to know him a little better first.  Sorry to cause you all this work, but could you go ahead and change it back to how it was (no use specified?)  Thank you very much!

Hi Beverly! It's not a problem at all :). I just wanted to make the note before it got disbursed in case that was what you were requesting. I have removed it this morning for you. Thank you so much for your thoughtfulness, I know that you just want the best for he and his family. Please let me know if I can assist you with anything else.
