Why do I receive Compassion's annual Christmas Gift Fund so early?

Updated Friday 25 August, 2017

Because distributing Christmas cards and gifts to more than 1.8 million children is a huge task, we send the Christmas Gift Fund early to ensure that your sponsored child receives your cards and gifts in time for Christmas.

Once we receive your letters, they are scanned in our office and then electronically sent to your sponsored child's country, where they are printed, translated and distributed to your sponsored child at their child development centre.

Your donation to the Christmas Gift Fund is pooled with the contributions of all other Compassion sponsors around the world and distributed to each child development centre where local staff purchase age-appropriate gifts for every Compassion assisted child.
