Are you celebrating a birthday, a wedding, an anniversary or anything else? Ask your guests to make a donation and help children in need instead of bringing gifts – or make a donation as a gift yourself and give away double joy.

Donations instead of gifts!


  • Register your fundraising activity with us and give us a key word (e.g. “Andrea’s birthday”), so that we can clearly allocate your guests’ donations to your fundraising activity.
  • Inform your guests that you would like to receive donations instead of gifts.
  • Give your guests the key word for your fundraising activity.


Put up a donation box
Simply put up a donation box at your party to collect donations. After the event, you can transfer the total to Save the Children (donations account: PC 80-15233-8) with your key word (e.g. “Andrea’s birthday”). You will receive a receipt for your donation at the beginning of the following year.

Material for your party
Upon request, we will send you information material, which you can put on display at your party. You can also download our poster and print it out yourself.

We would be happy to assist you. Make your request by phone on 044 267 74 70 or email at
