How it works…

What is a birthday pledge?

A birthday pledge is a unique way to celebrate your birthday by allowing your friends and family to make a life-changing donation to Street Child instead of buying you a gift.

How do I make a pledge?

Pledging your birthday is simple, all you have to do now is sign up in the boxes provided above and we’ll guide you through the process. Once you have signed up to a pledge, and when your birthday is approaching we’ll remind you to start a facebook fundraising page and to select Street Child as your chosen charity. Ask your friends and family to donate to your campaign. Share this page with as many people as you want to make your impact as big as possible!

When should I post my campaign?

To give yourself the best chance of achieving your target, we suggest actively campaigning a few months in advance of your birthday. In the weeks leading up to the date, a final push is likely to bring in a large portion of the funds!

When should I post my campaign?

When a persons birthday is near, we will remind you to share your birthday campaign across social media platforms (Facebook, Twitter and Whatsapp).

Remember! A good way to encourage your loved ones is to simply ask them if they are willing to donate a day's wages to your campaign.

How much should I pledge?

You can pledge any amount you think you can raise with the support of your friends and family, or an amount you can donate yourself.

Is there a fundraising target?

We do not impose any fundraising target upon you, we simply suggest setting an achievable goal and sharing it. Publishing this goal on your fundraising campaign page allows you and your supporters see this target and provides motivation to reach it!
