Are you trying to find a way to have your students give back in the classroom? Are you in charge of your schools community service program? Need a great activity to direct students to when they complete work early?
Birthday Card Program
Each child we celebrate receives a handmade birthday card from celebrate! RVA. Our volunteers are the driving force behind this initiative and we rely on them to decorate more than a thousand birthday cards each year. We deeply believe in the power of a celebration, but we also know that our birthday children treasure something as simple as a birthday card. Have your children decorate cards with stickers, glitter, and of course lots of happy birthday wishes. Specific guidelines can be found here, and if you have any other questions, email us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
We (clearly) don’t do normal around here. So we don’t just ask schools that want to get involved with us only to make financial contributions. Instead, we want kids to have a hands on approach to giving back. We’ve found that when children get to donate an item that they would want at their own birthday party, our mission hits much closer to home. When we ask children to bring in a dollar for a jeans day, or a bag of pennies to a penny drive, it’s tough for them to comprehend the impact that their donation has. We’ve seen countless children become very passionate about our organization because they had the opportunity to make a personal connection. If you’re interested in setting up a supply drive for your classroom or school, fill out the form below and we will be in contact as soon as possible!
