The greatest gift you can give this Christmas

We’re inviting you to donate to our Christmas Appeal and help us share the incredible gift of Jesus’ birth with children and families around the world.

It might seem early to be talking about Christmas, but our 7,000 church partners are already busy preparing! Christmas is a special moment in the year for them as they open their doors wide and gather children and entire communities to hear and experience the love of Jesus – the greatest gift of all!

By donating, you’ll also give your sponsored child, along with 2 million children in poverty, a hand-chosen Christmas gift. A loving gift means the world to a child who wouldn’t normally receive a present.

Send a Christmas greeting

You can still write a Christmas greeting to your sponsored child, even though the official 4 November deadline has passed. We can't guarantee, but we'll do our best to deliver your message in time for Christmas.

I'm so happy for the gift I received this Christmas. I love the shoes and shirt the most. because they are my favourite red color. I love meat and rice, and that is what I have eaten here at the church. I thank my sponsor for my Christmas gift and for the nice lunch.

It's his first Christmas gift. It's the first gift he has ever received. That's why you see he is super excited. As a single mother I don't have the luxury of buying him a gift, as I get little money to feed us.

Your Christmas questions answered

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

All Compassion-supported children, including your sponsored child, will receive a Christmas present and attend a Christmas party where they receive a festive meal and celebrate the birth of Christ. All donations to the Compassion Christmas Appeal are pooled and distributed amongst all our projects to ensure every child can take part. Our project staff hand-pick appropriate gifts for each child, they may choose clothing, blankets, bed Linen, toiletries, books or toys.

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.

Yes you can still write a Christmas greeting to your sponsored child, even though the official 4 November deadline has passed. We can’t guarantee, but we’ll do our best to deliver your message in time for Christmas! Thanks for giving your sponsored child the gift of encouragement.
