Are you looking for some other fun and exciting ways to support Cradles to Crayons? How about a birthday party, baby shower, anniversary, wedding, b’nei mitzvah or other milestone event?

Birthday Star: Looking for ways to instill the importance of service in your child? Does your child have more toys than he or she can imagine? Your party-goers can donate new or like-new clothing, books, toys, and other essential items in honor of your child’s birthday. Host a slumber party and ask invitees to bring new pajamas, or request that friends bring a new copy of their favorite childhood book! Upon dropping off the items, a staff member will provide a private tour of the Giving Factory for the birthday star and his or her family.

Note: Summer tours are offfered during the week.

For winter tours please contact Community Engagement Coordinator Katy DeMoura to schedule your Birthday Star drop-off and tour at or 617-779-4752.

Baby Shower: Host a baby shower and have guests bring new baby essentials that will be donated to Cradles to Crayons. Guests can also make a financial contribution, in lieu of a gift. $30 dollars helps provide one baby with the essentials necessary to thrive! Join our efforts to provide our most vulnerable population with basic necessities!

B’nei Mitzvah: Students preparing to become Bar/Bat Mitzvah can honor his or her responsibility for Tikkun Olam (repairing the world) through service to children in their own community. You can invite guests to bring a special gift to donate to C2C or encourage them to make a financial contribution in lieu of giving a gift. $25 dollars helps provide one local child in need with a KidPack!
