Donate Your Upcoming Birthday!


If you’re not sure what you want for your birthday this year, why not bring happiness to seriously ill children and their families with Starlight Children’s Foundation Canada? Celebrate the next year of your life knowing that you’ve given back to kids whose next birthday isn’t guaranteed.

Whether you’re throwing a birthday party or asking for donations online, here’s how you can make this one count:

Create An Online Birthday Fundraiser

Have a birthday in March and already have everything on your wish list? Help seriously ill children check something off of theirs!

It’s easy! Pledge your birthday at to create a fundraising page. Then just share the link with your friends and family on social media or by email to ask for donations instead of gifts!

All funds raised will help send gifts to seriously ill children sharing the same birthday month as you and offer support for the whole family through other hospital-to-home programming!

Your birthday is in another month? No problem! Sign up now and we’ll email you a reminder of your pledge when your birthday is close! You can also celebrate more than just your birthday. Raise money with an upcoming wedding anniversary, Bar or Bat Mitzvah, or any other special occasion!

Plan A Birthday Party In Support of Starlight Canada

Whether it’s virtually or in-person, who doesn’t love a great birthday party? When it’s also in support of a great cause, there’s even more reason to celebrate!

Easily create custom invitations, RSVP, and thank you notes with ECHOage. Your guests will be able to contribute towards Starlight Canada, as well as gifts for the lucky birthday girl or boy!

All you have to do is choose the percentage you want to donate! Collected funds will then be split between Starlight Canada and the gift of your choice to provide guests with a stress-free gifting experience, while allowing them to feel the joy of helping sick children.

Make your next birthday one you – and Starlight families – will never forget.

If you have any questions on how to use an upcoming celebration to make a difference, contact Trevor Dicaire at or 1-800-880-1004 ext. 2241.
