Sharing Disabled Not Live

Make your birthday a call to action

Ask friends and family to donate in your honor

We are no longer accepting donations on this campaign, but there are other ways for you to support us today!

It's Your Birthday. Fundraise if You Want To.

In lieu of traditional gifts, rally your friends and family together to give a gift to help unhoused people, just like Jay Jay, who became homeless over four years ago after escaping an abusive relationship. Since joining our work-experience team, her hope for stability has been restored and she is now housed. By dedicating your birthday to helping someone like Jay Jay, you're joining the fight to end homelessness while also encouraging your friends to support a cause you are passionate about!

It's easy to get started

Starting a Birthday fundraiser is easy to do, and it's fun. We'll give you all the tools you need to get started.

1. Set a fundraising goal and end date.

2. Decide why and for what you are fundraising.

3. Invite your friends and family to donate to help reach your goal.

Decide your fundraising goal

Setting a fundraising goal can feel daunting, so we've broken it down for you. With the help of your network, you're sure to reach your fundraising goal in a jiffy.

  • Example #1: $2,500 provides 25 people with one week of work experience + basic needs + case management + employment services + six days of debris removal in our neighborhoods and city streets.
  • Example #3: $1,000 gives 16 people the confidence they need for their next job interview by preparing them with a 45-minute mock interview + new clothes (including sizing, travel and shopping time).
  • Example #2: $500 provides 2 people with a home-starter kit welcoming them to their new home. The kit includes, pots and pans + bedding + towels + housing cleaning supplies + much more.

Want to raise more for a particular cause or help more people? Multiply it out. Take Example #1: Instead of helping 10 people, set a higher goal of $5,000 and fundraise for 50 people. You decide your goal and impact, then share your passion with your friends and family. This is your fundraiser. Make it what you want it to be, and we'll be cheering you on from the sidelines.

Your fundraiser will make a huge impact by allowing us to:

  • Restore hope by providing basic needs + employment services + case management + work experience to unhoused people
  • House families with children, elderly couples and individuals
  • Open the door to opportunity by providing transportation to job interviews, interview prep resources and interview clothes
  • Beautify our environment by sweeping downtown streets and collecting debris from creeks and neighborhoods
  • Save our bay by picking up millions of cigarette butts before they wash down city drains into open waters
