Send birthday cheer to a child.

The Problem

2.5 million children experience homelessness every year. Many kids’ birthdays fall while they are in a shelter, making it hard to celebrate.

The Solution

Make and mail a birthday card to help ensure everyone gets to celebrate on their special day!

A shelter staff member will receive the card you send. Then, the staff member, family, or friends will write a personal message inside for the birthday boy or girl.

What You Get

Sign up for facts on youth homelessness and stencils for two simple birthday cards. You'll also receive instructions on how to mail your cards.
