Thanks, Adam and Noah

Instead of giving their sons toys that would get broken, or outgrown, the Kanpurwala family decided to donate the boys’ birthdays and generate much-needed funds for children around the world.

“We wanted to do something really special,” their Mom, Celeste said. “We decided to donate our birthdays to Save the Children. We went online… it was super simple to do!”

Around the world, each year, 1 million newborns die on their first day of life. But it doesn’t have to be this way. By donating your birthday to Save the Children, you can buy children lifesaving antibiotics, shelter or food. With more help from generous people, more babies can survive their first day of life, and live to see their first birthday.

“I just hope they grow up to pursue their dreams, whatever they may be,” proud father Mark said. Five year-old Adam and 2-year old Noah are changing the life of children in need around the world – change that lasts a lifetime. Thank you, Kanpurwala family.
