Everybody has one. Old or young, we all celebrate it.
It doesn’t matter if they are big or small celebrations, we all look forward to a little acknowledgment that day – a little something from the world that says, “I see you.”
And for a child growing up in extreme poverty, we know how very special it is when he or she has more and more of them.
More and more birthdays!
It is such a joy when a faraway friend remembers your birthday by sending you a birthday card.
I remember going through the Compassion Experience and hearing how Julian was so excited when she received a birthday card from her sponsors. In her country, children living in extreme poverty rarely receive a birthday card, so it was so very special to her!
This month, for our Second Friday Letter Writing Club on Pinterest, we are launching the Birthday Card Ideas board to gather all of the paper birthday ideas into one place. This new board will help you find birthday printables and craft ideas to make your sponsored child’s birthday a special one each and every year.
So let’s start off with a birthday card. Most of our sponsored children are in Spanish-speaking countries, so we’ve been able to find birthday cards in Spanish to send them fun birthday greetings.
But handmade cards are fun to make and a great way to involve your whole family!
Want to send a little bit extra?
Obviously, cards aren’t the only way to celebrate a birthday. Gifts are always a great idea. But before you consider sending a gift, be sure to check out these resources:
Share your birthday idea pins with us on that board!
