The Problem

2.5 million US youth 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 children in shelters celebrate 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 kid!
