Celebrate your child’s birthday

🎁donate to children in poverty FOR THEIR BIRTHDAY 🎁

No birthday is complete without presents.
That’s why we make sure every child in our program — including yours — receives a birthday gift. As families struggle to provide basic needs, parents and children will be grateful to receive a gift that helps fill the gaps in their unpredictable budgets. And it means so much for children to know their sponsors are thinking of them.

Sponsorship has changed the way I celebrate my birthday since the age of 4 years old. Receiving birthday gifts has improved my confidence — because I know that you stand for me so I can stand for myself.”
