Hello Jeanette!

That is a wonderful question and I am happy to assist you today! Regrettably, you are unable to send Sampson any clothing or toys. We are not able to do this because it is not cost effective to send many packages over to the field staff with custom regulations. We do prefer to send a monetary contribution to the field staff because it improves their local economy. Let us know if you have any further questions about this and we will be happy to help you.

Hi Jeannette,

I'm a sponsor as well and found this blog post very insightful as to why physical gifts aren't mailed and how the monetary gift process works.  Hope you'll enjoy it!
