What is a Kid Ambassador?
When you earn the title Kid Ambassador by completing at least three of the options listed below, you have also become an example of kindness and volunteerism for all of the people in your life!
You can help spread the word about Box of Balloons and volunteering and being kind and you can be an amazing mentor to other kids who are interested in doing the same!
Here at Box of Balloons, we love getting kids of all ages involved in giving back, and helping to bring joy to children in times of need. If you're a kid, and you want to help make other kids happy, you're in the right place!
Complete THREE different projects from the ideas below. When you have completed your projects, move to step 3!
“I believe everyone should volunteer and give back in their lives because you can give back to the community and it will give back to you…”
-Emery Churchill, a 13-year-old volunteer for Box of Balloons through our Kids Helping Kids program
Set up a supply drive at your school, church, or favorite community organization or club to collect birthday party supplies for your local Box of Balloons chapter to use to help filll birthday boxes for kids in need!
If you don't have a Box of Balloons chapter close to you, set up drive to collect something else to help others...for example, food, coats, blankets, socks etc.
Pledge Your Birthday
Instead of getting gifts for your birthday, ask your family and friends to give you money to help provide a birthday party to a kid like you who wouldn't get a birthday party without Box of Balloons!
Sign up to Pledge Your Birthday and we will help you out!

Make a "Happy Birthday" banner, or some other type of birthday decor to include in a birthday box. You can use your own ideas or get some ideas/printable options from us.
If you live by a Box of Balloons chapter, you can drop it off at the nearest dropbox. Or ship it to the chapter of your choice!
If you have a local Box of Balloons chapter by you, watch for information about their quarterly kids nights! Gather your friends and go help decorate boxes, make birthday decor, and help in many other ways to help us provide birthday boxes to kids in your community.
