Fundraise for us

Donate your birthday

Instead of asking for gifts this year, help to change the lives of children in conflict zones by donating your birthday to War Child. 

We all love birthdays

Birthdays are magical, right? Cards, cakes, balloons and, of course… presents! But what if you could make your birthday magical for someone else? You could do just that by asking for donations instead of gifts this year.  

All money raised in honour of your special day will help fund War Child’s projects across the world, giving children in war zones hope for a brighter future.

Simply set up your birthday fundraiser on JustGiving, and get sharing with your friends and family.

Instead of getting presents from my friends, I'd like to ask them to donate a little bit of money to help children who have been through a terrible time because of fighting in their country.
