how often is information about my compassion child updated? Currently, her information says it was last updated in Aug. of 2012, almost a year ago.

Compassion does full information updates, including photos, for all of our children every two years (or every 18-24 months). If you send an additional gift of $60 or more to your child or their family, you will receive a photo of your child with their gift (within six months of when the gift is sent).

I just sponsored Agatha Dec. 1, 2014. Can I get a report from the year before?

Hi Bridgette! In my last response to you, I sent you the previous photo of Agatha which is what you receive when you get an update on your child every two years. I went ahead and sent you another email with information that was different in her 2012 update, from her 2014 update. I hope you find this information helpful! :)

We gave a family gift of $100 in June this year, can we expect a photo of the family with their gift in December of this year? How exciting!

Yes, Rhonda, for gifts over $60, you can expect a photo within six months of when the gift is sent. :)
