Our Story

Entrepreneur Shaun Buck has been bringing Christmas to foster kids since 2014, when he first learned that hundreds of local children wouldn’t have any presents come Christmas morning. He made a promise that no foster child in Canyon County would go without a present that year — and he kept it!


Shaun made the same pledge the next year, and the next, and a small promise grew into a big undertaking to reach more kids in more counties and make more Christmas mornings the way they should be. Because it’s not just about presents under the tree. It’s about sending a message to the kids who need it most: You matter. People love you. Your community cares.


And yet … the need is still there. Many children enter Idaho’s foster care system during the holiday season. For them, there isn’t much to celebrate.


You can change that. You can give them one thing to celebrate and bring them a little joy on Christmas morning. How? It’s as simple as sending an email to info@fosteringchristmas.org or calling (208) 609-4554. We’ll send you a foster kid’s wish list so you can pick out a gift (or two!) and send it to us directly.
