Blow out the candles and make a wish.
Kids and birthdays go together. Need proof? Just watch the video above, where we ask kids why birthdays are the best day of the year.
Birthdays are a great day to remind children how special they are, how much we love them and that they are making the world a better place, simply by being themselves.
But children living in an impoverished place or facing a difficult hardship, like the child you sponsor, may rarely have a chance to hear that they are valuable, precious and worthy of celebration.
They eat special treats, play fun games, spend time with their families and friends and open a present just for them.
But, it’s only because of kind and compassionate sponsors that this special day is possible.
If you’ve already sent a special card to your sponsored child and given a gift to make International Day of the Child possible, thank you. I can’t tell you how much joy your child will feel when they receive your special card. It will likely be something they keep for months or years. And, they are going to have a blast on June 1 — all because of you!
If you haven’t filled out the special birthday card we sent you for your sponsored child, it’s not too late! Please, take a minute to fill it out and return it to Holt’s office today! You can also make an extra special gift of $25, the cost of a party and gift for your sponsored child, online today. But please act today, because time is running out!
Thank you again for your ongoing support! You are making a huge difference in your sponsored child’s life — on June 1 and every day.
