For eg., a one-off donation of USD$50:
You are giving away 100kg of rice and a few bottles of soya sauce that can feed the 25 children living at CDO for up to one week.
It can also buy one year supply of lice shampoo for the kids (as the kids need lice treatment every few days). Your birthday boy/girl will receive a personalized handwritten note from the children, thanking him/her for the gift. To these children, the gift means food and health care and education.
Please have a read on what one of our birthday’s giver has to say:
“My good friend’s (Andre) birthday was around the corner and initially I wanted to buy him a pair of surf shorts. However I came across this site and thought that it was a brilliant idea and donated his birthday. A few days later, he received a thank you note and photos from the children’s home showing him the 2 big bags of rice that they bought with the money lol”
Andre, the birthday boy :
“I was surprised to receive a note with photos of smiling children creating my birthday cards on my Facebook page. At first I didn’t know what it was all about. Then I realized that my friend had donated my birthday in Cambodia. That was a great feeling knowing the money has gone into buying something useful (in my name!). And that feels like the best present ever. Thank you.“
