There are so many great party ideas out there today. The decor, the cake, the location are all important details that have become a competitive sport for parents all over the US. Throwing the best party doesn't always mean the most memorable.

We believe kids should have a great party and that the emphasis should be on the memories! The great thing about Kids Can Give Too is that kids can have their party anywhere, anytime with any friends & family they choose...the twist? That they use our online dashboard to collect monetary donations (to share with a charity) instead of the traditional wrapped gifts.

You're probably wondering how it works...parents log on register their child's party details and choose a charity with their child. The system allows for parents to invite guests by email or print invites explaining to guests that the child has chosen to do something great this year by sharing his/her gifts. Guests use a custom party code to rsvp and gift their donation amount. After the party, Kids Can Give Too splits the gifts sending 50% to the charity and a portion to the kid to buy a meaningful gift.

  • Guests love it bc they are no longer shopping for the elusive "Best Gift Ever"
  • Parents love it bc they are no longer filling their houses with birthday party aftermath of gifts galore
  • Charities love benefitting from the generosity of kids and gaining needed funds
  • Kids love it because they have the pride of doing something great AND they get to shop for a gift they really want!

Every kid has a birthday! What if it could change the world?
