Celebrate your sponsored child’s special day!
Many children living in poverty can barely afford basic essentials, and the pandemic has made things even harder. There’s certainly no extra money for cake, presents, or a party. But every child deserves to celebrate his or her birthday — including your sponsored child!
You can make sure your sponsored child has an unforgettable birthday by sending a personalized card and making a donation to help provide a unique party or gift.
Two ways you can help your sponsored child celebrate
Send a personalized birthday card
In the birthday packet you received in the mail, you’ll find a card to send to your sponsored child. Write a personal message inside wishing him or her a happy birthday. Then, return the card in the envelope provided at least eight weeks before your child’s birthday to allow for overseas shipping. You also can send your note online by clicking below.
Help provide a birthday surprise
Send an extra financial gift to help cover the cost of either a present or a party for your sponsored child and other kids in the same program. Gifts and celebrations vary between countries and programs, but your sponsored child will definitely receive a memorable treat that will make him or her feel extra special and loved.
Your card and gift will mean the world to your sponsored child!
