Wish for donations instead of gifts


You are almost wishlessly happy and don’t really need any birthday presents? You want children in poor countries to be better off? Then it’s very simple: You’re doing without birthday presents this year and instead ask your friends and family to support you in giving poor children a better life.

We will give you a special birthday donation page for this (Crowdfunding).

This is how it works

On his 30th birthday Marco wanted to give a better life to 30 children. He actually managed to give even more.

«It was easy to customize my own campaign page.» -

Lydia wanted donations instead of gifts for her 70th birthday. She doubled all the donations from her own pocket.
