The Birthday Party Project

The Birthday Party Project

So in life, we know “good eggs” and we unfortunately know “bad eggs”. I met one of the best eggs I know, my friend Pamela, back when I was 9 years old, in the 4th grade and we’ve been best friends ever since. Well today is Pam’s birthday (Happy Birthday Pamel!!) and when I asked her what she wanted for her birthday she insisted on no gifts. I of course told her to shutup because obviously I’m not not getting her a gift. Then she said fine, if I wanted to get her something than she would like me to donate to The Birthday Party Project. Good egg, people. And yet I didn’t even know what this organization was.

After learning about the organization, I felt compelled to share. The Birthday Party Project’s mission is to bring joy to homeless children through the magic of birthdays. In 2015 they will host 180 birthday parties across the country where children enjoy activities and crafts, games, decorations, cupcakes, and party favors. Overall they have celebrated over 1,350 birthdays with 11,500 kids in attendance. How amazing is that?!
