A good occasion:

Your birthday

It doesn’t matter whether you will be 15 or 50 years old – turn your birthday into a good deed by asking your friends and your family for something special this year: support for an aid project. Invite them to donate instead of giving a present by listing a fundraising event on betterplace.org and sharing it via email or facebook.

Your birthday gift idea:

Donations instead of gifts

Collect donations for instruments for children in Peru, or for a solar-powered stove for women in Kenya. Choose from the thousands of social projects on betterplace.org. Your donations will be transferred to the aid projects!

Your birthday gift:

A good feeling

Your friends and your family will visit your fundraising page on betterplace.org and read more about your birthday wish. They can then donate and leave a short comment or they donate anonymously. Subsequently, you and your donors can both track the progress of your chosen aid project. Is there a better way to celebrate a birthday?
