Hi Mary Lee! When I looked up Paramour bracelets, all of the ones I found were made of metal like the one below.



Regrettably, we are not able to send metal. However, if you made a chain-link, paramour bracelet out of paper, then you're certainly welcome to send that to your child :). The difficulty with this might be that there will be a risk of it getting smashed or tearing in the mail. But if you laminate the small pieces of paper, this might reduce the damage to the bracelet and help it hold together! :)

Hi Emily. My question is about Christmas gifts to send our sponsor kids. I have one graduating in November. If I give to all of them now would she still receive the gift even after she graduates?

I leave this morning to Bolivia on the sponsor tour so I need you to call me about it.I need you to call me in the afternoon after 1 p.m. your time? At that time I can make the donation on the phone.

Hi William! I hope you have a good, safe trip to Bolivia and have a great visit with your sponsored child! If you need to speak to someone on the phone you can call Compassion at (800) 336-7676 any time, Monday through Friday, 7am to 5:30pm MT and any of the representatives that answer the phone will be able to assist you. I always get straight through to someone when I call Compassion and they are always so friendly and helpful.

William, if you send a gift to Maria (I believe that's who your talking about) this month, we will ensure that it gets to her. We offer the option for sponsors to send their children graduation gifts and sponsors have up to three months to send the graduation gift after the child has already graduated. However, note that Maria will not receive a gift from the Christmas fund because she will no longer be attending our project at the time the center has a celebration and Christmas gifts are distributed. Because she will have already graduated, your best option would be to send a final graduation gift in which she is able to use it as she wishes for the greatest need she has right now. 

I will call you this afternoon to set this up if you'd like. However, there is no rush and if you would like to send it after you get back from Bolivia, we will still be happy to send it to your girl for you at that time.

Have a great trip and I'm praying God blesses your time there!
