nomoreNVFriendships enrich our lives, boost our self-esteem and provide a feeling of belonging in the world. Friendship is essential to positive human development and every bit as important as a child’s education. Without positive peer relationships, children struggle with feelings of loneliness and isolation.  At crowdFunnit, our goal is to inspire friendships by bringing communities together in support of children who feel alone in the world. We believe that even *one* single friendship formed can make a profound and uplifting difference in the life of a lonely child.CrowdFunnit provides children in need with community celebrations to encourage building friendships for their special day – their birthday! Who doesn’t want to be a part of that?

Eligibility All applicants must meet the following criteria to qualify for a crowdFunnit birthday celebration:

  • A school age child in grades K – 12 and under the age of 18
  • The child has not previously been granted a CrowdFunnit birthday celebration
  • The child has a demonstrable history of “friendlessness”

CrowdFunnit can provide only one birthday celebration per child. crowdFunnit’s primary focus is on helping to bring “friends” to the party, community involvement, and raising awareness.  Our parties are most successful when the parent/caregiver is actively involved together with us. Together we can help every child enjoy the simple pleasure all children deserve, a happy birthday with friends.

crowdFunnit Crowd-Sources Special Events For Special Kids: crowdFunnit, a project of the 501(c)3 nonprofit Cherab Foundation, was created to brings people together, raising awareness about differences while fostering acceptance and compassion. Helping a friendless child celebrate a birthday is just an incredible mechanism in which to help make this happen. The party itself and any media attention it brings will help fight bullying at the root while the community connections will exist long after the party ends.
