BENEFITING: OneSky for all children
Of those 353,000 one year olds, around 45% live either in poverty or in abandonment. Which means almost half of the children on this planet with the same birthday as Q will not ever reach their full potential.
Children who are not given the right amount of nurture and love fail to thrive both mentally and physically. When we think about how amazing it is to watch Quentin grow everyday, and all the new tricks he learns every week, it's hard to imagine another version of him without the chance to meet those milestones.

Q has plenty of toys and cloths to spare. We would love it if we could celebrate his birthday by giving a little to others instead. Maybe it'll help him think about others when he's old enough to know how he shared his first birthday. It's not a big goal, but we've heard that every little bit helps!
