Birthday Extra Encouragement (BEE) Team
The intent of the cards is to make sure a child knows that he/she has numerous people honoring and celebrating his/her birthday. You are not expected to provide a gift; just a simple handwritten note. Childplace provides a gift to every child on his/her birthday. If you would like to put something in the card, please no more than a $1 or $2, or McDonald's Gift Certificates make great gifts. This is a great way for an individual, family, or church group to provide extra encouragement to a child on his/her birthday!
