The Jarige Job Foundation

A Happy birthday for every child

Unfortunately, thousands of children can’t celebrate their birthday because there is no budget for it at home. The Jarige Job Foundation helps these children by giving them a birthday box containing everything for celebrating their birthday, at home and at school. This box contains a cake, streamers, treats for school and of course a nice gift. To give a box to as many children as possible, MAMALOVES launched the Balloon Charm, available as a bracelet or necklace. The entire proceeds go directly to the Jarige Job Foundation.

Every child deserves a happy birthday

Jewellery with special meaning

MAMALOVES has created a charm especially for the Jarige Job Foundation that you can personalize with a handwritten engraving of your choice. The balloon-shaped charm (available in 18k gold-plated or sterling silver) is inspired by the balloon in the Jarige Job Foundation logo. Proceeds from every Balloon Charm bracelet or necklace sold will go directly to the foundation. In this way you create a unique bracelet or necklace with an extra special meaning and at the same time you contribute to a good cause.

For anyone who does want to contribute but prefers to choose another piece of jewelry from the MAMALOVES collection, there is the option to make a one-time donation of €0.50 at check-out.

Every child deserves a birthday

In the Netherlands there are more than 300,000 children who live at or below the poverty line. Unimaginable, but also often invisible because there is a great taboo on financial distress. There is simply no room for these children to participate in activities such as sports with their peers or celebrating their birthday. Things that are normal to so many other children. That is why the Jarige Job Foundation helps the children who are most affected by the poverty situation at home.

About the Birthday Job Foundation

The Jarige Job Foundation was established in 2010, on the occasion of the first birthday of the son of Huib Lloyd and Barbara Kathmann. Due to the overwhelming number of gifts that their son Maas received on his first birthday, Huib and Barbara decided to find out how poorer families actually do this. They could never have imagined that the situation in a rich country like the Netherlands was and is so dramatic. With their foundation they hope to help these families create an unforgettable birthday. Every year, more than 80,000 children now celebrate their birthday with the help of Jarige Job.
