Gift Your Birthday for Play!

Posted by on Jun 28, 2017 in Featured Stories, Playtime Live |

As the nation celebrates America’s birthday, we thought it was a good time to launch a new giving opportunity: Gift Your Birthday for Play!

For many of us, our birthday is an opportunity for celebration with cakes and gifts. But it’s also a great time to reflect on our lives, our achievements, our still to-do life goals. And to consider what we’ve done, and what we can do, to help others.

Countless children live in shelters and transitional housing where not only is play restricted, but the expense and lack of space makes celebrating their birthdays nearly impossible. You can make a difference!

Turn your celebration into action for children and teens experiencing homelessness. As America celebrates its birth, consider Gifting Your Birthday for Play! Instead of receiving gifts, have friends and family, give a donation in support of safe and fun activities that reduce the trauma of homelessness.

The money you raise will provide healthy snacks, field trips, and fun activities for infants all the way up to teenagers living in temporary housing.

Visit our “Gift Your Birthday for Play” website and get details on how to set up your own fundraising page. There’s a toolkit with step-by-step instructions to help you get started. Resolve to Gift Your Birthday for Play and make a difference in the life of a child experiencing homelessness.
