The Smile Project
Birthday Giveback Program

The Smile Project Birthday Giveback Program is a way to use your birthday for good. Whether you are organizing a fundraiser or volunteering in your community, there are endless ways you can use your special day to promote kindness and service.

What is a Birthday Giveback?

Birthday Giveback is all about taking the attention you get for your birthday and turning it into a meaningful service opportunity for your community and beyond. There are countless ways to spend your birthday in service and there is no one right way to do a "giveback." 

Here are some ways people have given back:

  • Ask your loved ones for donations to a favorite organization in lieu of gifts

  • Organize a beach clean-up with your friends

  • Raise awareness about a social issue that you are passionate about

  • Encourage your friends to do 1 act of kindness  (and give them some examples!)

Why Should I Sign Up?

While you can obviously do a service project for your birthday (or any day of the year!) on your own, we find it's really special to be part of a community focused on this kind of giving. When you sign up to host a Birthday Giveback through The Smile Project, you'll have the opportunity to promote your project on our website and social to encourage others to give in celebration of you—how cool!
