Become a Holiday Hero in Georgia

Help a child build holiday memories to last a lifetime.

Join Youth Villages this holiday season to help make the holidays a happy time for almost 200 children and young adults in Georgia. We work to ensure that every child in our care has gifts to celebrate the season, and we rely on the support of community partners and individuals to make that happen. Please help us by becoming a Holiday Hero and sponsoring a child. We ask that Heroes spend $100 per child. All donations – 100% – will go to help the children we serve in Georgia. Any support is greatly appreciated and will make a huge difference in the lives of the children we serve.



  • Please visit our Amazon Wishlist to purchase and send items to our youth.
  • Heroes may also purchase items from the wish list (below) or host an in-kind drive to collect items to drop off for the holidays. Click the “Fill a Wish List” button above to sign up.



  • Heroes send a donation to sponsor a child and we do all the shopping and wrapping.
  • Heroes send a donation to sponsor a last minute kid and we do all the shopping for that child coming into our care days before the holidays.
