Is it okay for us to send items to our child for his siblings?  He has 4 siblings and I wanted to make bookmarks for them and send girly stuff for his sisters.  Would that be okay?

I think it would be ok but I'm not sure. If you do ask him to give it to his sisters so he knows what and who they are for :)

In the future I plan to send things to my little girls brother, I have heard others say they do this too so I am assuming it's OK with Compassion but would also like to know for sure. Our girl is in Kenya so most centers can only accept 1 child per family into the program and I feel horrible that her brother will probably not be able to join the program (although I completely understand why) but anyway I can let him know that God loves him and people far away love him too.

I send things for my kids to give to their siblings and unsponsored kids. I feel so bad for them not getting letters and things

I'm pretty sure it's fine! I've seen posts with compassion employees saying that it is actually a really good idea.

Yeah it's fine to send things for siblings/friends!  Fairly regularly I send extra goodies like stickers for my kids' siblings and ask them to share.  If I know the siblings' names I'll sometimes also include some personalized things with their names as well if I'm sending something like that for my child.  Most of my kids have mentioned that their siblings appreciated being included.
