Reaching Out

More children are struggling with mental health issues today than ever before. In fact, behavioral and emotional disorders affect thousands of children right here in our community. And it is a sad truth that two-thirds of these kids never receive the help they need.

The good news is that treatment does work for those who receive it.

Child Guidance Center is dedicated to providing child-centered, family-focused mental health services in Lincoln. Utilizing a combination of unique programs and proven strategies to meet every individual's needs, we serve more than 2,000 children and adolescents each year.

The services we provide are available to all youth throughout the community, regardless of financial ability.

How to Throw a Fundraiser Birthday Party

If you’re one of those people who dislikes their own birthday because it’s too much attention, then a fundraiser birthday party is for you. Basically, you use your birthday as an excuse to raise awareness and money for a cause you are passionate about. You could limit the invite list to your friend and family, or you could open it up to co-workers, community volunteers and even more. Here are your three tips to throwing yourself a fundraiser birthday party:

Digitally fundraise—For those family members and friends who feel uncomfortable sending money in the mail, set up an account on a fundraising website for people to donate online. You could set it up through Razoo, Punchbowl or even create a landing page on the nonprofit’s website that is solely focused on your fundraiser birthday party.

Showcase nonprofit—The most important part of your fundraiser birthday party is educating your guests on the particular cause. Take it a step further and host your birthday party at the nonprofit’s offices, and, of course, invite all the nonprofit employees and volunteers to your party.

Serve themed-food—Think about the cause that you’re fundraising for. How can you lend the cause to a birthday party theme? Maybe you’re fundraising for animal rights, so you have everything animal-themed and serve animal crackers. Think along those lines to make it more fun.
