Inspiring the
big hearts
of little kids

We believe that kids who give become adults who give. That’s why we provide families with a real, personal and simple way to give to children in need.

Give Today

It’s never too early to celebrate kindness

Whether you’re a parent of a toddler or a tween, Daymaker is here to help you start the conversation with your family about helping others.

How your family can get involved

Choose a giving
opportunity

From birthdays to holidays and everything in between, our platform allows you to give in a real, personal and simple way.

Identify a child
to help

We partner with local chapters of high-impact nonprofit organizations to create descriptions of each and every child they serve.

Buy a gift and watch
the magic happen

Select and purchase meaningful items online from one or many wish lists, and follow along as gifts are sent directly to the child's sponsoring nonprofit.

All of this will be tracked for you in My Family, where kids will earn badges and rewards
to celebrate their heroic acts of compassion and generosity.

Party & Give: The same giving experience...with your friends

There may be one thing better than giving...and it’s sharing giving with those you care about most. Daymaker enables you to use your next family birthday to help support kids from any of our active giving opportunities.

Three simple steps:

  1. Create your page and choose kids you want to support.
  2. Share your page with party guests or friends.
  3. Guests can RSVP and buy a gift...in just a few clicks.

Kids will also earn badges for hosting and attending Party & Give events—all tracked in My Family.

Real gifts to real kids

We work very closely with the local chapters of high impact 501(c)(3) nonprofit organizations that serve children and families in their communities and understand the unique needs in those communities.

"This type of kindness and giving will always be remembered. It's made a tremendous impact with our children and families."

Rosa, Volunteers of America

"Most of these children have a history of trauma and have difficulty enjoying the holiday season as a result. It is truly a gift to...show these children that there is a network of people that care"

Erin McKay, Dare Family Services
