Hi Anaiya, happy holidays! I hope you enjoy the 'express yourself' box from Daymaker and that you keep dancing like nobody is watching :) I've been dancing since I was your age and still try to dance as much as I can - even if it's just in my own bedroom. Maybe one day we can dance together!

Hi Kylee, I love your dream to become a doctor. That would be a beautiful way for you to be of service in the world if that's what you want to do when you grow up. Anything is possible for you if you're willing to do the work. Never give up on your dreams. Oh, and If I could be an animal, I'd be a dog, too. Have an amazing holiday season and an incredible New Year! Robert

Hi Olga, I really like the gifts you picked. It shows me you know the importance of taking care of yourself and others. I may get the book for myself too. Noodles are your favorite food?! Mine too! Wishing you and your family a joyful holiday!

Hi Marian, It sounds like you are a really special person -- smart but with a giving and loving spirit and heart. You will change the world! I love kittens too -- they are so fun. Our cat Riley is very loving. Wishing you a very merry Christmas and lots of love.

About the 'Season of Magic' campaign

There’s something subtle but unmistakeable when the air turns colder and the calendar approaches the turn of the year. It’s an air of possibility, of expectancy, and dare we say…of magic. We all feel it no matter our age, but the energy is most present for kids.

Daymaker was founded to make the holidays more special for the wonderful children we serve. This holiday season may feel different during a year in which we have all experienced an array of challenges, but the opportunity to share joy with kids in our communities has never been greater.

You have the ability to make magic for individual children who are supported by our nonprofit partners. The gifts are based on the specific wishes and needs of the children they serve, and include a mix of toys & books that will ignite their spirits when they arrive in the coming weeks. You can also give longer-term ‘Bundles’ that help keep kids inspired and engaged monthly into 2021, contributing to the continued development of a hopeful child.

For the first time, this campaign offers past donors the chance to continue supporting the same kid you’ve helped in previous campaigns. If this is your first time, welcome - we hope it’s the beginning of a beautiful relationship where you’ll share resources and encouragement with these amazing children.

We hope you feel the energy during this Holiday season - the possibility of joy that’s there for all of us during this ‘Season of Magic.’

Campaign Updates

December 9, 2020 Thomas D. (Chief Believer, Co-Founder, And Ceo)

Hi good good people , aka Friends and Family of Daymaker. This is a campaign update for all those who have participated in 'A Season of Magic,' Daymaker's Holiday 2020 Campaign. We have never had a campaign like this in seven years of doing Daymaker. It feels so very full—of giving, words of love, heartfelt reflections, and human goodness. As of today, every child uploaded by our 50+ partners has at least a gift purchased for them! That's never happened with several days left in the campaign. Over the next week, we'll look to fill all holiday items while ensuring as many kids as possible have special bundles to look forward to receiving monthly in 2021.

We send this note to share something with you. It is a gift that comes in the form of a video we've just completed. It is to say thank you. It's not your typical "thank you" video. Instead, it's an honest, hilarious, and touching view into the lives of our nonprofit partners and the kids they support. I hope it sparks something in your heart and helps you feel how special you are. It feels just right that on the day we're ready to share these stories with you, we get to let all of our partners know that EVERY KID they uploaded is going to have a special holiday and 2021 because of you, your friends, and the broader Daymaker family.

So, go check it out at daymaker.com/thepath. And, thank you for being you <3
