A Birthday Party Turned Into An Assemble and Donate Project

Assemble and Donate Project

A birthday party is an excellent avenue for an assemble and donate project. Many people struggle to find the time or places to host a service project. Birthdays are a great way to get your friends and family involved in your favorite philanthropy.

Starting A Birthday Fundraiser

Our young friend Sam decided that she wanted to help local kids in foster care with an assemble and donate project. To make this happen she started a fundraiser for $250 to cover the sponsorship of 10 Sweet Cases. Foster Love - Together We Rise has a simple way to create a fundraiser on our site that is easy to share anywhere online. Sam and her family let their friends know about the fundraiser and together their network donated $1,400.

To help encourage people to donate Sam and her sister Abby made an adorable video. This personalization really helped because it showed everyone why it was important. Check out the video below.

Since Sam raised $1,400 she received 48 Sweet Cases and donated the rest of the funds. On her birthday she and her friends spent the day together decorating and assembling the Sweet Case duffle bags.
Vanessa, Sam’s mom wrote to us about the project and says. “I just want to thank you and all the people that work at Foster Love - Together We Rise.  You have helped to change both my daughters’ lives.  Sam not only influenced her friends, family, Church, and teammates but gave this presentation at school. Thank you for helping me show my daughters what is really important in life!”

Thank You, Sam

Happy Birthday and thank you, Sam. We love it when kids help kids and know that this is just the beginning of your philanthropic journey.

Supporting children in foster care is important and we hope that Sam’s story can help inspire some people who are interested in helping but don’t know how to start. For those wanting more information, please contact us here.
