Daymaker is a kid-to-kid giving platform that was founded on the belief that kids who give will grow up to be adults that give. With the easy to use app, kids can first select a giving opportunity, like the holidays, then choose a child to help and a gift to give them. Finally, you can make a purchase directly through the online app and track the package all the way until it’s delivered to the recipient. It’s one thing to make a donation, but it’s something different entirely to see who the donation goes to.

Once you log on to the Daymaker app you can search through listings of kids names with a brief bio. When your kids feel a connection to one specific child, you can then browse that kid’s wish list and purchase a gift to be sent. It’s a super simple way for screen-savvy kids to really understand how their meaningful actions and kind thoughts make an impact for someone else.
