Birthday Hero

Want to celebrate your big day in a way that supports kids in our community? You can, by becoming a Birthday Hero! Enlist your friends and families to donate to the Alberta Children’s Hospital Foundation in lieu of birthday presents. You and your supporters will be making a difference in the lives of kids at the hospital — and that’s the best gift imaginable.

How to become a Birthday Hero

Step 1: Create a fundraising page. Our online fundraising platform is safe and easy to use. Tell your friends and family why you’re supporting kids at the Alberta Children’s Hospital and ask them to join you with a donation to celebrate your birthday.

Step 2: Use our online tools to send messages to your friends and family. Be sure to include a link to your personal page so people can access it, along with any other important details for your big day.

Step 3: Have a fabulous birthday and gather with your family, friends and supporters online or (safely) in person! You’ve done something amazing to help others! Now have fun!

Step 4: Thank your donors. Send a personal message to everyone who supported you and your fundraiser.

You don’t have to be a kid to become a Birthday Hero. Adults can do it, too.
