Host Your Birthday Party for Children in Gaza
Please note that with the ongoing onslaught of Gaza, we can't commit to dates for the birthday parties yet, and will need to see when our partners will be able to deliver them. This may be several months out.
This birthday, host a party in Gaza for children who need a reason to celebrate.
Your donation will be used as follows:
- 60% will host a party with entertainers, food, cake and music in a hard hit area of Gaza for between 30 and 60 children. It will be a real day of respite from a very harsh reality for these kids. Just look at the photos to see how the day brings them much needed smiles.
- The remainder will fund our emergency recovery programme for children in Gaza - which will be a combination of psychosocial and emergency therapy depending on needs on the ground.
In the process, we'll also train graduates in delivering trauma therapy to increase employment as well as Gaza's capability to deal with this much needed issue.
We'll try to have the party as close to the birthday date as we can (see note at top of page about the current crisis in Gaza). We'll send you an email asking for a photo so that the children know who they are celebrating with. It is as important that they know they are remembered as it is that they have the party.
After the party, we'll send you pictures and, if we can, a video of the party so you can see the enjoyment and laughter that you've brought to a place and to faces where there isn't as much as there should be.
The total cost is £300 - £180 to the party, and £120 to the trauma project. If you are a UK taxpayer, you can elect to use Gift Aid, in which case your donation would be £240. Otherwise, we would ask you for a donation of £300. Hope and Play retains none of your donation - it all goes to the party and the trauma project.
Once we've received your order, we'll email you to finalise details.
Thank you! These are pictures from some of the parties we've hosted so far.
