What is this all about?
This is about having fun, learning and giving, all at the same time.
Why should I play these games?
We know kids love games. We love games too! We are so psyched to create these games for you. The games and stories are super fun and you’ll be able to learn more about your world and how to help this world become an even better place!
Why should I host a charitable party?
Giving feels great! When you find a cause that you care about and ask your friends to donate instead of bringing gifts to your party, we know that you will feel so psyched about your donation and your effort in supporting the cause you’ve chosen that you won’t miss the gifts that your friends would have normally brought you.
I love gifts. What about gifts?
We love gifts too! And there’s a good chance your parents will still get you a gift or in the very least, your grandparents, right!? No one wants you to give up loving or wanting gifts, we’re just giving you a chance to do both and help a cause while you’re celebrating your birthday. Why? Because we know you’ll love the feeling of helping others.
Will it really make a difference?
We think so! Imagine helping a child your age get a meal. Imagine saving dolphins from being killed for no good reason. Imagine kids, your age, attending schools that don’t have enough money for classroom supplies. Imagine being able to help. You can! It takes each of us to do our small part in a big world. Imagine if each of us just did one small thing to help others, this world would be a better place to live.
Why should I?
Why? Because it’s probably time that we come up with a new way to celebrate. A celebration that’s less about what we get, and more about the things and people we care about. A celebration that gives kids, like you, a fun and easy way to help those in need. You can help your friends – and even their parents – to be more aware and active caregivers of this place we call home.
What will my friends think?
Well, we don’t know your friends but if they are like most kids, they’ll think you’re pretty great for hosting a birthday party where you’re giving to others… and we think they might do the same once they see how it’s done. We also think they might just join your efforts in caring. Kids are pretty amazing so we have a lot of confidence in your friends – and in you – to make a difference.
