For the second year in the row, Lumos – the charity started by “Harry Potter” author JK Rowling – will be drumming up awareness for the more than one million institutionalized children throughout Central and Eastern Europe.

The “Light a Birthday Candle” campaign, which kicks off tomorrow on International Children’s Day, was started as a way to bring a bit of happiness into the lives of these kids – who are often disabled, from an ethnic minority or from poor families.

“Separated from their families and isolated from their community, these children receive little human or emotional contact,” the site reads. “Year after year, the staff who look after them cannot provide the individual attention they need so desperately, meaning they don’t have access to the educational or social activities we take for granted – from attending school to marking each passing year by celebrating a birthday.”

To help celebrate the day, you can make a donation, organize a bake sale, or even throw down a little tea and cake fundraiser. Anything to help inject some joy into the lives of these kids.
