HI Nicole! Welcome to this community! First of all, thank you for sending a gift to your kiddo! :) I'm not sure that there's a deadline, so to speak, for sending gifts in time for certain occasions like Christmas and birthdays but financial gifts take about 2-3 months to reach our sponsored children. Please know that whether your gift reaches your child before or after the occasion you are sending it for it will certainly be appreciated and it will be an enormous blessing for them and their families!

There is one exception with the deadline for gifts, and that is for the Christmas Gift Fund, if that is what you mean. 
The deadline for the Christmas gift fund was yesterday, October 31st, but if you missed it, do not worry!  Because this gift is part of a fund, unlike that other child gifts, your child will still receive a gift for Christmas!!
The Christmas Gift money is pooled together to make sure that every child in the program gets a Christmas gift, whether they are sponsored or not, yours included!  So thanks to many generous donations from other sponsors and even non-sponsors, your child will get a Christmas gift.  And if you are able to donate to the fund but just missed the deadline, you can still give!  It will just go towards next year's gift instead of this years! 

If you were no referring to the Christmas gift fund, then there is no deadline for gifts, other than what Adam posted up above :)
