I am not able to give my sponsored child a gift this Christmas. Will they miss out?

Updated Friday 16 September, 2016

Don't worry, your sponsored child will still receive a Christmas gift even if you are unable to donate this year. Because all gifts to the Christmas Fund are pooled internationally and distributed to purchase a gift for every Compassion assisted child, your sponsored child will be unaware that you were unable to pay personally for the gift. Please do not be surprised if your sponsored child writes and thanks you for their gift and tells you what they received.

Even if you cannot send a gift, you can still show your sponsored child they are loved by signing and returning your Christmas card. These cards are appreciated by Compassion assisted children just as much as the gifts they receive.
