Support us on your birthday

Fundraise at your celebration

A simple, personal way to celebrate a special occasion

Support Save the Children in celebration of your birthday

Instead of gifts, why not ask your friends and family to make a donation to Save the Children with a birthday fundraiser?

Hints and tips for creating your page

  • Include images and a story explaining why you've chosen to support Save the Children.
  • Ask your most generous friends to donate first to set an example.
  • Add the link to your page to all your party invitations or emails.

Other ways to raise money

  • Venue discount: If you're having your party at a venue, ask for a cut price rate and donate the difference to Save the Children, then mention them at the party to say thank you.
  • Fancy dress: Birthday parties are a great excuse to dress up! Make it a fancy dress party and ask people taking part to donate, with prizes for the best dressed.
  • Song requests: If you’re playing music, give guests the chance to request songs in exchange for a donation.
