A loving home for every child

Special Occasions

Celebrate the Special Moments in Your Life

When you share your birthday, wedding, graduation, anniversary or other special moment with SOS Children's Villages, your personal milestone helps provide and strengthen families and children in need around the world.

Hosting a fundraiser is a meaningful way for you to play an important role in the work of SOS Children’s Villages. While enjoying yourself at a fun and meaningful event, you will also be providing children and families with the tools and resources they need to live happy healthy lives. It’s easy to do and SOS Children's Villages will help you every step.

Are you celebrating with a friend or a group of people? Create a team fundraising page to share in the fun.

Special Occasion Ideas


Instead of asking for presents, ask for donations to your fundraising page to help vulnerable children around the world.

Holiday parties

Use your fundraising page as a party invitation by emailing everyone the link. They can see all your party details and donate.

Bar/bat mitzvahs

Support SOS Children’s Villages’ work for your bar/bat mitzvah project and ask your family and friends to help.


Mark a special anniversary by asking loved ones to donate to your fundraising page, commemorating your shared commitment.


Instead of a gift registry, ask your guests to donate to SOS Children’s Villages Canada to celebrate your commitment to helping children and one another. Including a link to your fundraising page with your wedding invitations or on your wedding website.

Graduations and achievements

Celebrate your special achievement by helping SOS Children’s Villages Canada achieve its vision for every child to belong to a family, and grow up with love, respect, and security
