Stichting Jarige Job - Every kid deserves a birthday
Many kids take celebrating their birthday with presents, a party and treats at school for granted. But did you know that for tens of thousands of kids in the Netherlands, this is not a given?
Every year, many kids in the Netherlands cannot have a birthday party because their families don’t have the funds. On their happiest day of the year, they don't get a present, there are no colourful balloons and they can't hand out treats at school. The Jarige Job foundation helps these children, and their families, by giving them a birthday box with a value of € 35,-. It contains everything you need for a proper birthday, at home and at school! More than 80,000 kids celebrate their birthdays each year with the help of Jarige Job!
The parents receive the Jarige Job birthday box well in advance of their child's birthday. They make sure the house is decorated, the cake is baked, presents are wrapped and the treat for school is ready. The kids don't have a clue about the existence of the Jarige Job foundation. This turns a birthday into a real family celebration again!
You and your co-workers can help with packaging the birthday boxes so that kids can enjoy a fabulous birthday.
