Give Joy Holidays:

Christmas for Foster & Adopted Kids in Kansas City Metro


GiveJoy cover 1

In the Kansas City Metro, there are more than 3,500 children in foster care.

Kids in foster care hurt during the holidays, but Christmas presents help give joy. With the generosity of donors like you, kids can have a happy childhood.

Your Support Gives Joy to Foster Kids

Give to a specific child from their wishlist.

Donate a financial gift and we’ll shop for you.

Send gift cards for kids coming into foster care right before the holidays.

Why Give?

“Our kids didn’t know you got more than one Christmas present.”

Kids in foster care often wonder if Santa knows where they are. By shopping a child’s Christmas wish list, donating so we can fulfill a wish list on your behalf, or giving gift cards for kids just entering foster care, you help Give Joy to foster, adopted, and kinship kids.


Give Joy Now


Give a financial gift of any size and we will shop on your behalf.

Thank you for your generosity!


Pick how many kids you would like to match with and we’ll send you a child’s wish list. Select 3 or more gifts, typically $30 or less each, shop and drop off the gifts with our staff.

Gift Card Drive

Host a gift card drive to collect gift cards for kids entering foster care during the holiday season. Due to COVID-19, we prefer gift cards, however we graciously accept new gifts.
