It's Beginning To Look A Lot Like Fostering Christmas
Updated: Aug 23, 2022
Did you know that children who enter Idaho’s foster care system after Thanksgiving don’t get presents for Christmas? The state always scrambles to find help, but Thanksgiving is the cutoff for the Salvation Army’s Angel Tree program. So, more often than not, dozens of children wake up to find nothing under the tree.
When Newsletter Pro CEO Shaun Buck learned about this heartbreaking situation in 2014, he stepped in to fill the gap. He bought presents for every foster child in Canyon County who wasn’t covered.
The effort was such a success that he founded the nonprofit Fostering Christmas. Every year since, our team of volunteers has helped get presents to hundreds of foster kids in Canyon and Ada Counties. But we don’t do it alone.
The 2022 holiday season is almost upon us, and these kids need your help!
As you can imagine, each foster child has a wish list. Fostering Christmas collects these lists, and our donors and sponsors help us fulfill them. Participants either buy gifts themselves or donate to the cause. If you donate, we’ll use 100% of your donation to purchase presents for Idaho foster kids.

Even if you don’t have the time and funds to participate this year, there’s one thing you can do for the kids. Help us spread the word! Please share this article on your social media pages to get our message out this holiday season and bring a little joy to children who really need it.
