Foster children are moved often from home to home, and birthdays are forgotten. You can give a foster child something to celebrate by sending her or him a new, unwrapped gift to the Children's Law Center of Los Angeles. The children are newborn-18 years old. Great gifts are books, makeup and manicure kits, games, legos, baby toys, etc.
