If you're looking to make a real difference on your birthday, why not mark the occasion by choosing to support Afghanaid - your generosity helps us work towards a peaceful and thriving Afghanistan! 

Set up a Fundraising Page 

The easiest way to show your support for Afghanaid is by setting up a fundraising page and asking friends and family for donations instead of gifts. These gifts will keep on giving and have a lasting impact on vulnerable Afghan communities. 

You can create a fundraising page directly on our site or via Facebook - they're really simple to set up and 100% of the money donated will come straight to us. You can then share the link far and wide, and let your friends and family know how much supporting Afghanaid means to you!

Create your page

Celebrate in style

Why not incorporate us into your birthday celebrations too? Whether the occasion is big or small, we'd be thrilled to be part of your special day. We'll be on hand to help support any ideas you have, or if you need some inspiration, why not check out some of our suggestions below:

  • Hold an Afghan inspired birthday dinner party using our Afghan recipe book and ask guests to donate how much they would have paid for the meal.
  • Have a bake sale at work and sell these delicious melt in your mouth Afghan biscuits.
  • Throwing a larger party? Ask for donations on the door.
  • Hold a fancy dress competition - charge friends to take part.
  • Have a pamper evening in and ask friends to donate what they would have spent going out.
