How far in advance should I send a monetary gift? I want to make sure my child receives their birthday gift before or around their birthday, but not too much before their birthday that it's odd (like more than a month before the occasion).

Hi Cindy! The process can take 2-3 months with all of the paperwork and transferring of funds. I send birthday gifts 8 weeks in advance (for USA to Uganda). If it arrives early or late I am sure your child will be ecstatic and overjoyed regardless. I hope your child has a very special birthday!

Hi Cindy! Keeli is right :). Since Welington's birthday is in the beginning of December, I'd suggest sending your gift to him towards end (last couple of weeks) of September :).
