Bring Joy. make a Difference.

This year alone, 2.5 million children experiencing homelessness might miss out on a birthday celebration. We’ve made it our mission to change that. At The Birthday Party Project, we believe every child deserves to feel special - especially on their birthday.

Birthdays matter because people matter. Our mission is to acknowledge the life, dreams, and birthday wishes of children who wouldn’t otherwise be celebrated. With a little bit of magic, and a whole lot of sprinkles, we want all kids to know one thing: they are worth celebrating.
