GIVE A GIFT

Share joy where it’s most needed this Christmas

Sadly, post-pandemic reality is a long way off for those we are called to serve. Further waves of COVID-19 and ongoing restrictions mean Christmas will once again be celebrated very differently by our local church partners.

That's why we're inviting you to share the joy of Christmas with your sponsored child, alongside children in poverty around the globe, with a gift they really need this year. More than new clothes or a delicious food package, it’ll be a reminder that they’re not forgotten, but known and loved.

With your vital support, our local church partners can deliver an unforgettable Christmas to children and their families, sharing the unchanging message of hope and joy that Jesus’ birth brings.

Send a Christmas greeting

We'll do everything we can to deliver your message amidst local COVID-19 restrictions. But even if your message is delayed, it will still bring great joy and encouragement to your sponsored child.

"When I told Jose about [his] Christmas gift, he couldn't stop smiling and jumping around the house. It is happiness that you can't describe when you can't bring those kinds of gifts to your child," says Jose’s mum, Magdalen, from Guatemala.

"I am very thankful that I receive a Christmas gift every year. And this year I am so happy to receive my gift. I will save it until Christmas so I can open it with my family around," Adds eight-year-old Jose.

“Christmas is the birthday of Jesus, the creator of the world, and our Saviour,” shares eight-year-old Nycolle from Brazil.

“I like Christmas because we get gifts and have fun. The pandemic made everyone a little sad, and Christmas is going to be really hard with it. What makes me happy is knowing that my family and I are healthy, and that Jesus loves me."

Your Christmas questions answered

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

We know that children in our programmes love to celebrate Christmas, and with more than 2 million children registered in Compassion projects around the world, it takes quite a while to get all the preparations in place!

Inviting supporters to contribute from September and write a Christmas greeting by the beginning of November gives us enough time to process, translate and arrange delivery of all our sponsors’ cards.

All Compassion-supported children, including your sponsored child, will receive a Christmas present this year. All donations to the Compassion Christmas Appeal are pooled and distributed amongst all our projects to ensure every child will be supported and encouraged during this challenging season. Our project staff hand-pick appropriate gifts for each child. They may choose clothing, shoes, blankets, bed Linen, toiletries, books or food packages.

Yes! Our website allows you to send the same message to all of your sponsored children. When you go to the Christmas writing pages, you’ll be able to select multiple children and then choose the 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, of course, still send individual messages to each child if you prefer.
