Hi Peggy! We can definitely send extra gifts to your child but our program is designed for the $38 a month. We have been putting your extra donations each month towards the Sponsorship Plus fund because there was no designation on them when they came in. Our Sponsorship Plus Fund is the fund of the month and our default if there is no designation. 

Compassion's Child Sponsorship Program connects a sponsor to support a child living in poverty. The Child Sponsorship Plus Fund further financially supports our core sponsor/child model by providing funds to support unsponsored children while they wait for a sponsor and support our other programs' most urgent needs.

I can definitely make a note on your account that anything extra is supposed to be a child gift. However, we discourage sending extra gifts to your child or his family on a monthly basis because it could create a dependency for that family. Please confirm if you wanted to move forward with this or if you would like this extra money to go somewhere else. We by all means want you to have control and say over where your donations go!
