We are teaming up with DoSomething.org to help youth experiencing homelessness celebrate their birthdays. Get crafty with us by making birthday cards and then mail them to a shelter!

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 birthday cards to shelters to help youth experiencing homelessness celebrate their birthdays!

A shelter staff member will receive the cards you send. Then, the staff member, family, or friends will write a personal message inside for the birthday kid!

What You Get

Sign up for facts on youth homelessness and tips for making amazing, thoughtful birthday cards! You’ll also receive instructions on how to mail your cards to your nearest homeless shelter. PLUS, you’ll get a chance to win a $5,000 scholarship!
