Make this year's birthday one to remember

Birthday donations

Have a birthday coming up? Consider asking for donations this year to make your big day even more special.

Birthday donations can take many forms. You can ask loved ones to make a donation to support our cause in lieu of all gifts. Or maybe you’d rather host a toonie or 50/50 party—where you keep one toonie or half the money you receive for a gift for yourself and then donate the other half to kids in need. Whatever you decide, you’ll be making a lasting impact.

How it works.

Ask

The first step is easy. Just ask your family and friends to donate to BC Children’s Hospital either in addition to or in lieu of your birthday gift this year.

Collect

If you throw a birthday bash, you can collect cash or cheques. Or if you’d rather go digital, create and customize your own online fundraising page where friends can donate.

Celebrate!

We always love thanking our supporters in person. So if you’re in the area, come visit us and have your photo taken with a big cheque. Kids will also earn a membership with the Sunny Bear Birthday Club, a recognition program designed to help make donating through their birthday a memorable experience.
