Sharing your special day


Think back to when you were a kid  - your birthday is on the horizon, and all you can think about is the cake, the decorations, the people that will be celebrating with you, the fun games you would play ... THE PRESENTS!!  Other than Christmas, my birthday was the most exciting day of the year it was a day that was special for me, it was my day.

At Glorious we've seen some pretty incredible things - one of the things we've been especially impressed by, are the people of all ages who have donated their birthday to Glorious. Instead of receiving gifts themselves, they have received donations to benefit the children at Glorious.  

 

Here are a few we are so impressed by:

There is Sophie, who during her birthday party, accepted money instead of gifts and sold refreshments to raise enough money to sponsor a child at Glorious.

There's Noah and Simon, who donated their birthdays and raised money to sponsor a child as well.

There's Shefali who donated her birthday and raised money to send one of our former students, Jacobo to a school for the blind.

And now Katie, whose birthday is tomorrow - and whose goal it is to raise $5,000 to finish the roof of a building at Glorious that will have 3 new classrooms. Tomorrow is Katie's birthday - let's help her get to the $5,000 mark!!!
