Celebrating the birthdays of NJ’s foster children: Give birthday gifts to foster children.
Birthdays are magical moments of childhood. You remember the candles, the cake and the present you asked for all year – but still can’t believe you got. You remember being surrounded by friends and family and the warm glow of happiness.
But for many children and youth in New Jersey, this was never the case. In fact, many foster and kinship children don’t celebrate a birthday for the first time until they are in care.
Here at Foster and Adoptive Family Services, we want to make sure birthdays are extra special for New Jersey’s foster children. That’s why we created We Birthdays, a program aimed at making sure foster and kinship children and youth in New Jersey know that there is a community of people like you who deeply care and want them to celebrate their birthdays in style.
From the doll she always wanted to the headphones he can’t wait to show his friends, we want to make New Jersey’s foster and kinship children have a birthday they will always treasure.
We need your help to make these birthday wishes come true. Please consider buying a gift directly from our Amazon Wishlist or donating to the program today. When you give birthday gifts to foster children, you’re creating memories they’ll cherish for a lifetime.
When they blow out the candles on their cake this year, know you’ve helped make their wish come true.
