- Volunteer your time
- Celebrate your birthday by donating to Birthday Wishes!
An impressively growing number of young people are choosing to support Birthday
Wishes as the "theme" of their birthday parties. We provide a template invitation
that invites all attendees to bring an item for Birthday Wishes to the party (this
is done either in lieu of or in addition to gifts for the birthday child – its up
to you!). When you bring in your items from the party we'll take a picture of the
birthday child w/ their donations for our newsletter. This is an activity that our
future philanthropists can really relate to!
