Pledge Your Birthday
Pledge your birthday and give children everywhere the chance to grow-up knowing that they are loved.
One of the small but heart breaking differences about growing up in an orphanage instead of a family, is that children who live in institutions rarely get the chance to celebrate their birthdays. If they were abandoned as babies they may not even know their actual date of birth. That’s why we are asking you to pledge your birthday so that we can close institutions and give children the chance to grow up in families where they are loved and celebrated as individuals.
Igor was placed into an institution when he was 6 years old. When he was 13, he went to live in a small group home, set up by Hope and Homes for Children, where he celebrated his 16th birthday. A year later we were finally able to trace his relatives, and Igor now lives within the love and protection of a family. (Ukraine)
