Are you looking for some other fun and exciting ways to support Cradles to Crayons? How about a Birthday Party, Baby Shower, or other Milestone event?
Birthday Club: Birthday parties are very special occasions for family and friends, no matter what our age. But do you sometimes find yourself thinking, “I just don’t need anything”? Or, “My son or daughter will be excited to see their friends and relatives, but they don’t need any more presents”?
Our Birthday Club program gives you and your kids the opportunity to celebrate your birthday while also helping other children celebrate theirs! For example: You can invite partygoers to bring a special gift to donate to Cradles to Crayons. Or you can encourage friends and family to make a financial contribution, in lieu of giving a gift. $25 dollars helps provide one child with a KidPack!
To register for Cradles to Crayons' Birthday Club please fill out this form and select “Milestone” as your drive type. Once you are registered, a member of our Community Outreach staff will contact you.
Baby Shower: Holding a baby shower to benefit Cradles to Crayons is very similar to our Birthday Club. Host a baby shower and have guests bring baby essentials that will be donated to Cradles to Crayons. Guests can also make a financial contribution, in lieu of a gift. $25 dollars helps provide one baby with a KidPack! Join our efforts to provide our most vulnerable population with the very basics! To register your Baby Shower, please fill out this form and select “Milestone” as your drive type. Once you are registered, a member of our Community Outreach staff will contact you.
Mitzvah: Students preparing to become Bar/Bat Mitzvah can honor his or her responsibility for Tikkun Olam (repairing the world) through service to children in their own community. You can invite guests to bring a special gift to donate to Cradles to Crayons or encourage them to make a financial contribution, in lieu of giving a gift. $25 dollars helps provide one child with a KidPack!
