Being a child should be the most magical time of our lives. Sadly, some children are too sick to have the wonderful experiences that they deserve. This is why the Giving Cake Project is so important. Started by a sixteen year-old girl named Jazmin Moss, the Giving Cake Project began when she heard the story of a terminally ill high school student whose dying wish was to have a graduation party before he died. She felt compelled to help, and as a result the Giving Cake Project was born, a program for kids by kids. A program where kids help to fundraise by placing a giving cake donation box at their next party, and then use the funds to plan a party for another child at the end-of-life.
No party is complete without clowns, face painters, magicians, food, decorations, games and goody bags. But it’s not limited to just that. The celebration can be anything from a pizza party for one child, to a tea party with their favorite princess for another child. The Giving Cake Project is aimed at distracting children from the pain, fear and isolation they can often feel as a result of their illness and at strengthening family bonds at what is often a time of great stress.
Many of the Giving Cake parties are planned by high school service clubs. If you know about a local high school group that would like to participate, please contact us at 877-661-0087.
