It is beautiful to see the look in a child’s eyes when they receive a gift for the first time in years.
A simple birthday gift and acknowledging the day of their birth can provides eternal rewards, building self-esteem and giving a feeling of self-worth as children understand that people care about them.
Many children whose families receive Fishline services do not receive gifts for their birthdays because their families lack money for meeting even the most basic needs. The Birthday Fairy program provides birthday gifts for children of Fishline clients. The birthday gifts are perfectly chosen in cooperation with parents. In some cases, the children themselves choose.
The gifts are wrapped and presented by our volunteer Birthday Fairy. The program also includes a birthday cake for the day of the birthday celebration.
You can sign up to schedule time with our Birthday Fairy at our Market Receptionist Desk.
Over 200 children receive gifts every year!
