M recently talked to the editors at DoSomething.org and they shared a shocking statistic with us. Every year in the US, over 1 million kids experience homelessness and many of them have to celebrate their birthdays at shelters.
DoSomething.org's Birthday Mail campaign strives to reduce this statistic by motivating kids to help other kids. How can you help? Grab a couple of pieces of paper and a pencil, and check out this tutorial on how to make cards for the campaign!
You can sign up for DoSomething's Birthday Mail to locate shelters closest to you, get inspired to make more cards, and even enter to win a $4,000 scholarship!
