EVENT DATE: Jul 09, 2011
This year I'd like to donate my birthday to Angelwish, a great non-profit that provides toys and books to underprivileged kids with chronic illnesses.
I've always been lucky enough to get presents on my birthday, and now I want more kids to be able to experience that happiness. So instead of receiving material gifts on my birthday this year, I'd much prefer my friends, family, and fellow CrowdRisers grant the wishes of as many children with chronic illnesses as possible! Many of the families Angelwish serves cannot afford to provide their children with birthday or holiday presents due to low family income and high medical costs. With your help, Angelwish can step in and provide these children and their families with a critical piece of psychosocial support.
And it couldn't be any easier to grant a wish! You can either donate through CrowdRise and Angelwish will use your donation as they best see fit , OR visit http://angelwish.org/ to choose a specific gift to be sent to the child's care center! (If you choose the second option, please let me know so I can add it to the total here!)
Thanks for helping a child smile on my birthday!
