Send a Gift

Send a Gift - When you send a gift to your sponsored child, you send a blessing and an extra reminder of your love.

You can send a monetary gift to help meet any extra needs the child or her family may have. Log in to My Account to send a financial gift to your child.

You can also send a gift to your child with the next letter you write, although the gift must be small enough for customs to consider it a document.

If you send a gift larger than 8-1/2" x 11" and 1/4" thick, we will contact you to see if you’d like the gift returned or donated to a local Colorado Springs charity.
