May I bring a gift to my sponsor child?
Yes, you may bring a gift to your sponsor child (or send it with someone coming here)! Please give all gifts to the sponsorship coordinator who will save the gift for your sponsor child’s birthday or Christmas. DO NOT mail gifts to Guatemala as packages may be lost or stolen.
May I bring a gift for my sponsor child’s house?
Yes, if you wish to bring a gift to the sponsor child’s house please consider bringing something from the wish list.
What kind of gifts should I give?
Toys, clothes, and accessories are the best gifts. Around $30 is a good goal price. We recommend giving one nice toy our outfit instead of lots of little items. If you would like a wish list for your child please email the sponsorship coordinator at firstname.lastname@example.org.
What happens if my sponsor child leaves?
If a sponsor child leaves for any reason before receiving their gift, the gift will be put in the general gift closet to be used as needed for one of the other children.
How To Prepare Your Gift?
Please place the gift item(s), card and a gift bag/tissue paper (optional) in an extra large ziplock bag with the sponsor child’s name on a large piece of paper in the front of the bag. Please do not wrap the gift as we need to see the items and gift wrap gets destroyed in travel/storage.
