1. Do I provide an actual birthday box for a child?
Yes!! Our sponsors have been incredibly creative with what their box looks like but it's incredibly helpful to have the birthday items in a box or container. Many children in foster care transport their belongings in trash bags so we like the idea of a box that can be used for other purposes after the birthday is done! Previous sponsors have packaged their birthday items in a plastic tote, trendy reusable bags or even bright colored laundry baskets!
2. Should I wrap the gifts or leave them unwrapped?
We ask that you leave gifts unwrapped. For those of you who are big into wrapping, be creative about how you may still give the recipient the opportunity to open a present by using tissue paper to ‘wrap’ a gift, putting gifts in gift bags inside the box or using tissue paper covering all contents of the box. It's up to your own creativity to determine how you would like to do this but we need to be able to see what the contents of the box are
3. Do I include a card? What do I write in the card?
Yes, please include a card. Feel free to include a generic, uplifting birthday message to the birthday child. You can sign the card with the first names of the members of your family or by using the name of the businessgroup that sponsored the box.
4. There's not much information about what the child I'm sponsoring wants or is interested in. Is there a way I can get additional information?
Send us a message or email and we will do our best to get more information! There will be times where we can get additional information and times where your creativity should shine!
5. How do I arrange delivery?
We will email you to arrange pickup/delivery. In the future we hope to have drop off locations!
