Plan one hour to surprise your children. And give one hour of income to uplift all children.
Don’t worry, we’ll keep it a surprise until Children’s Day
Because they’re always surprising us. It doesn’t have to be the biggest gesture — but we do want you to make it a surprising moment of love and celebration.
PS: we know your kids are probably following you on the socials, so we’ll keep your pledge a secret… until Children’s Day — then we’ll blast it out to the world and keep an eye out for you to share your moment of surprise with the world with #childrensday2023.
Established by the United Nations in 1954, Children’s Day has long served as a platform to advocate for the well-being of children worldwide. It’s a day to celebrate children as they are, free from pressure and inhibition, full of dreams and potential. It’s a day to remember that children aren’t just our future — they are our present.
We are determined to see as many children celebrated as possible and to give them something to celebrate — which is why we want you to start with your children. If you can surprise them, that builds them up to surprise the world.

But what about children with limited opportunities?
Some children don’t have the chance to dream big and achieve their full potential.
That’s why we’re tackling the world’s biggest problems that keep children from being able to reach their dreams — poverty, conflict, food insecurity, the equality of young girls and women, the protection of Indigenous communities, and the global mental health crisis.
A portion of the proceeds raised during Children’s Day 2023 through the Children’s Hour Foundation will be distributed to non-governmental organizations that help children-at-risk in conflict zones.
The Children’s Hour is a way for parents like you to chip away at global problems… by chipping in just one hour – Children’s Hour – of earned income, once a year.
Why? So that together, we can tackle the world’s biggest issues and make sure all children get the chance to feel celebrated and dream big.
One generous moment to uplift all children, by all giving just one hour of our earned incomes.
Just one hour of earned income, once a year….
To give one child the chance to dream big.
This year’s focus is helping children-at-risk in conflict zones.
Proceeds raised during Children’s Day will be distributed to help children at risk through the Children’s Hour Foundation to select NGOs that are tackling the world’s biggest problems that keep children from being able to dream — global hunger, food insecurity and food production, the empowerment of girls and young women, the protection of Indigenous communities, and mental health.
