Will I find out what birthday or Christmas gifts the child and family selects? What are the various options they can choose from?

Jim, yes you will receive a letter from your child about six months after sending your gift of money. I've had families use gifts in all kinds of ways like: clothing, mattresses, livestock, iron sheeting, furniture, medical bills, cloth, school supplies, food, etc. I've seen other sponsors whose kids have spent the money on a bicycle, items for a business, school fees, birthday party(in the case of a sponsor child's birthday). It really just depends on the family's needs at the time.
