Let Christmas begin with a child this year

As we look to show God's love this Christmas amidst the complex issues facing our world, it can seem like an impossible task. The joy and hope that comes from knowing the true meaning of Christmas may be far from people's minds.

But just as God's salvation plan for the world began with a child, you can start to make a difference this Christmas - one child at a time.

That's why we're asking you to join us as we partner with thousands of church partners around the world to share the love of Christ with children this Christmas.

Some will celebrate with a Christmas meal and gifts. Other church partners, in regions where the pandemic is still threatening lives and livelihoods, will personally deliver practical items - like food, shoes, or clothes - to children in their care and their families.

Come join us as we share the hope of Christmas around the world.

Send a Christmas greeting

So many children we serve treasure the kind words from their sponsors during this time. Your encouragement this Christmas will bring great joy to your sponsored child.

"This celebration has brought the children joy and hope."

- Guadalupe, mother, El Salvador


"It was beautiful because they presented the gospel. It's an opportunity for many children to hear about God because in some cases they don't have that opportunity at home. However insignificant these gifts seem for other people, they represent a lot to our children because we cannot give them to them."

- Eva, mother, El Salvador

"I think it is important for every child to have a nice meal at Christmas, one they can share with their family. It makes us feel special and cared for, knowing that people are thinking of us and want us to share this with them.”

- Jariela, 10, Nicaragua

"The COVID-19 pandemic is so hard on everyone, including my family. But the encouragement we got from the sponsor strengthened us. I was touched when I read the letter the sponsor sent for Christmas. The sponsor said he was praying for our family so that we could survive the pandemic.”

- Valentine, Shevas mother, Indonesia

Your Christmas questions answered

Some of the questions you may have about sending a greeting or giving to our Christmas Appeal.

Gift selection and distribution will vary from community to community according to local circumstances and restrictions:

  • Where projects are operating normally, gifts will be purchased in the local community by project staff and distributed at a Christmas party.
  • If projects are not operating normally because of local restrictions, parties or celebrations may not be possible. Christmas gifts will be given to children safely and securely – delivered by a staff member or volunteer on visits to children’s homes for example.
  • For families facing critical needs, or in communities where home visits are not permitted, Christmas gifts may be delivered directly in cash or by secure money transfer to a child’s caregiver, so that they can decide how best to use the money to provide for their family.

In many communities, especially in countries that continue to be severely impacted by COVID-19 and a rise in the cost of living, it’s likely that staff will prioritise gifts covering critical needs – for example, by selecting gifts like shoes or clothes rather than toys. 

In situations where urgent care is needed, our church partners can request direct cash transfers to provide for the critical needs of their sponsored children and families.

Yes, you can. When you go to the Christmas writing pages, you’ll be able to select multiple children, choose a design and write the message that you want to go to all of them. To use this function, you must be logged in to your myCompassion account. You can still send individual messages to each child if you prefer.
