Sponsor A Child!

Sponsor A Child!

When you think of a child’s birthday celebration, what do you think of? Do you think of party hats, cake, balloons, games, presents, and laughter? So do we! We want to make sure every child enrolled in the Children’s Birthday Project (CBP) has the kind of fun and lighthearted day that we all envision!

clip_image002Our commitment to helping 700 needy children, ages 3-12, in DuPage and Kane counties wouldn’t be possible without our wonderful and generous sponsors who have the same birthday wishes for those children. Did you know that it only costs $54 a year to sponsor a child and to ensure that he or she has a great birthday? By being enrolled in the CBP, that child will also be eligible for our Feed the Kids Project in the summer as well as The Christmas Offering, through which children receive Christmas gifts and food for the family!

clip_image004Each Birthday Box is valued between $220 and $260 and contains the following wrapped gifts with ribbon:

  • 6-15 New Toys
  • 1 New Game
  • 4 New Books
  • Party Supplies
  • Stuffed Animal or Action Figure
  • School Supplies
  • Filler Gifts

Our CBP Coordinator, Megan Birkey, came up with a great sponsorship idea over the Christmas holiday. While trying to find gifts for a few of the hard-to-shop-for people on her list she thought of the CBP and what a neat present it would be to give the gift of sponsorship! If you’re ever struggling for a gift idea for someone, whether for birthday, Christmas, or another occasion, why not sponsor a child in that person’s name?! How wonderful to share the gift of a child’s birthday. Great idea, Megan!

We are currently looking for sponsors, so if you are able to help a child or children, please let us know. We would love to hear from you!
