New Platform Instills Kindness in Kids by Turning Important Days into Fundraising Opportunities

Important Days turned into Fundraising Opportunities

June 18, 2019 —

All parents want their kids to grow into kind and compassionate individuals. Give My Day has come up with a novel and inspiring way to instill these values at an early age through events such as birthdays, mitzvahs, graduations and other important occasions. In lieu of gifts for their special day, children can set up a personalized fundraising page on Give My Day and ask friends and family to donate to a charity of their choice.

Surveys reveal that 87% of parents consider kindness as the most important character attribute they would like to see in their children. However, not many parents actually strike up engaging conversations with kids centering around this value. Give My Day aims to change this with their youth-focused giving platform.

Give My Day makes it easy for families to get involved. Kids pledge to give their day and ask family and friends to donate to a cause they care about instead of giving them gifts. It takes just a few minutes to set up a fundraising page, select the nonprofit a child would like to support and share the link to the fundraising page on party or event invitations.

"Give My Day offers families a way to practice kindness together through a giving experience that is simple and accessible," says Brooke Hill, Founder of Give My Day. "Instead of children getting a bunch of presents they don't really need, they get to experience what it feels like to make a difference in the world. And that is one of the greatest gifts you could ever give your child."

Give My Day is a win-win for everyone who participates. For kids, it creates a positive experience with giving at an early age. For parents, it provides an easy opportunity to instill generosity in kids, while doing away with the abundance of gifts that kids often do not need. For guests, there is no more last-minute scrambling to try and figure out which gift to buy - instead, partygoers can make a tax-deductible donation to a cause your child cares about and feel good about it.

Brooke's daughter Riley, who raised money for Pencils of Promise on her sixth birthday, says, "It makes me so happy that I can help other kids like me go to school. I want to help more kids next year!"

Parties and events can be not only fun, but also fulfilling when they are associated with important social causes, and that's the mission of Give My Day: to see empathy, kindness and generosity shine in every family.

Europe's specialty food makers brace for US tariffs

Oct 23, 2019

MILAN — European producers of premium specialty agricultural products like French wine, Italian Parmesan and Spanish olives are facing a U.S. tariff hike due Friday with a mix of trepidation and indignation at being dragged into a trade war they feel they have little to do with. The tariffs on $7.5 billion on a range of European goods were approved by the World Trade Organization as compensation for illegal EU subsidies to plane maker Airbus. The U.S. has some leeway in deciding what goods it puts tariffs on. So while it is taxing European aircraft goods an extra 10%, it...

The Latest: British govt insists there is Brexit progress

Oct 23, 2019

BRUSSELS — The Latest on Britain's plans to leave the European Union (all times local): 10 a.m. The British government says talks with the European Union are making progress, despite the lack of a breakthrough overnight. Prime Minister Boris Johnson's office says talks are resuming Wednesday after a "constructive" session that lasted late into the night in Brussels. Johnson is eager to strike a deal at an EU summit starting Thursday so the U.K. can leave the bloc in good order on the scheduled date of Oct. 31. But both sides say gaps remain over plans for maintaining an open...

Bulgarian prime minister condemns soccer racism

Oct 23, 2019

SOFIA, Bulgaria — Bulgarian Prime Minister Boyko Borissov condemned the racist behavior of his country's soccer fans on Tuesday, a day after the national team played England in a European Championship qualifying match. Local fans made Nazi salutes and directed monkey noises at the black players on England's national team. England won 6-0, but the match was halted twice in an effort to stop the abuse. "It is unacceptable that Bulgaria, one of the most tolerant countries in the world where people of different ethnicities live in peace, to be associated with racism and xenophobia," Borissov wrote in a post...

Kosovo election winner in no rush to restart Serbia talks

Oct 23, 2019

PRISTINA, Kosovo — A left-wing party leader poised to become Kosovo's next prime minister said Tuesday he isn't in any rush to restart formal talks intended to normalize relations with Serbia and won't lift the previous government's 100% tariff on Serb imports. In a general election held Sunday, Albin Kurti's Movement for Self-the Determination, or Vetevendosje, defeated center-right political groupings formed by former Kosovo Liberation Army fighters who had governed since 2007. Kosovo, a former Serbian province, declared independence in 2008, a decade after an insurrection by KLA fighters and Serbian strongman Slobodan Milosevic's bloody crackdown launched a 1998-99 war....

AP sources: Trump allies sought changes at Ukraine utility

Oct 23, 2019

KYIV, Ukraine — As Rudy Giuliani was pushing Ukrainian officials last spring to investigate one of Donald Trump's main political rivals, a group of individuals with ties to the president and his personal lawyer were also active in the former Soviet republic. Their aims were profit, not politics. This circle of businessmen and Republican donors touted connections to Giuliani and Trump while trying to install new management at the top of Ukraine's massive state gas company. Their plan was to then steer lucrative contracts to companies controlled by Trump allies, according to two people with knowledge of their plans. Their...
