Goodwill Manasota and the Children’s Guardian Fund are partnering on a new initiative, “Celebrate You,” with the goal of brightening the birthdays of children in foster care.
Many children in foster care come from neglectful, unstable, or even abusive environments. They are often removed from their homes with nothing but the clothes on their backs. In the past, some foster children may never have had the opportunity to celebrate a birthday. In 1995, the Children’s Guardian Fund began a program to provide each child who was placed in state care with a gift card to ensure at least a small birthday celebration. The amount of the gift card has increased over the years and, today, every child receives a $35 gift card for their birthday.
