The following kids will be another year older in January 2019 – follow this link sign up to sponsor a birthday! Sponsorship for a birthday party is suggested at $50 USD, and provides a cake, gifts, and a fun party for each child! Or, just $15 will cover the cost of a cake! To sign up for a specific child’s birthday, click the ‘sponsor’ button underneath each of their names on the SCH birthdays landing page. Any donation to the birthday program will get you an email of highlights from all the birthdays in that month!
*Note: in the following list, if a child’s name is highlighted and linked, they need general sponsorship! The money amount next to each child’s name shows how much in sponsorship funds they still need. See the paragraph ‘Child Sponsorship’, below, for more information.
*Note 2: since I was so late getting this post up, most of the 2019 January birthdays have already passed! However, you can still give toward any upcoming birthday by following the link above. I intend to edit these birthday posts yearly, rather than writing a new one each year. As you may have noticed, a January page was missing previously, as I started these posts in February of 2018.
*Dawn ($275/month) – 28 on January 1
*Caroline ($0/month) – 9 on January 11
No birthdays this month
*John ($260/month) – 22 on January 4
