Hello:

I would like to send a traditional birthday gift to a sponsored child. When I click on the icon for "Birthday Gift", only money values are shown. Am I to understand that "money" is given to the child according to my selection or is the money applied to a tangible gift for the child by compassion international?

Yes, you may give a monetary birthday gift to your child. The staff will take the child to the market and help them purchase what they would like.

You can also mail a real card and a flat, paper gift to the child as well. Here are some ideas: http://www.bloggingfromtheboonies.com...

Log into your account on the CI website. Then click Additional Giving on the left side of the page. You can then choose which child you want to send a gift to and the amount.
