Donate your birthday!

Donate your birthday to Children Today and help change young lives in the UK!

Instead of receiving gifts for your next birthday, you may want to ask family and friends to donate to a charity of your choice instead and give a gift that really does keep giving!

By donating your birthday to Children Today you will help give a long-lasting legacy to children and young people with disabilities by helping provide a grant for a much-needed piece of specialised equipment. 

You can make it easy for friends and family to support your birthday by setting up an online collection page -the easiest way to do this is through Facebook. Facebook may send you a suggestion two weeks before your birthday to do this – or to set it up yourself all you need to do is simply click on the ‘Create Fundraiser’ tab on the drop down list from your news feed. Here you can choose the charity you’d like to support as well as set a fundraising goal and your fundraiser’s end date – simple! 


Another way you can set up a birthday collection page is through Justgiving. Just click the below link and select the ‘Start Fundraising’ orange button on the right of the page to get started:

Donations can also be sent to Children Today, Unit 17B Telford Court, Chestergates Business Park, Chester CH1 6LT or made over the phone on 01244 335622.

If you would like us to send you some balloons or even collection boxes to use as part of your birthday celebrations and help you collect donations easily, just call us on 01244 335622 or email us on and we will arrange for you. If you’re ‘Donating your birthday’ we’d love to hear from you! Send us some info on how much you raised – and any pictures if you have them – to and you may even be featured in our next newsletter!

Your support means a great deal to us and the children and young people we support. Thank you for your generosity.
