A child’s birthday party is an occasion full of friends and fun. In addition to cake, candles and games, you can give your son or daughter the fulfillment of knowing he or she has helped another child by hosting a Hope and Will Happy Birthday.
Follow these simple steps to host a Hope and Will Happy Birthday:
- Talk to your child about his or her upcoming birthday party, and encourage him or her to consider giving up some gifts in order to help patients at Children’s Healthcare of Atlanta.
- Once you have determined a date for your Hope and Will Happy Birthday, inform your guests about the opportunity to bring a donation to Children’s in lieu of or in addition to a gift. Read sample wording you can use in your invitation.
- Print copies of the donation form to distribute at the party. (Note that there are two designs you can choose from.) Guests making a donation to Children’s will fill out the form and leave it with you.
- After the party, mail in the donations and forms to:
Children’s Healthcare of Atlanta Foundation
Attn: Lynn Leslie
1687 Tullie Circle NE
Atlanta, GA 30329-2320
By hosting a Hope and Will Happy Birthday, you celebrate not only your child’s milestone, but also his or her generosity and the difference it will make in the lives of patients at Children’s.
