Stories of Celebration
What I love most about TBPP is that it’s not about birthdays at all. It is about self worth and allowing yourself to be fully seen and fully celebrated for YOU. Children, especially those experiencing trauma, cannot hear those messages enough. They not only deserve to be celebrated for their birthday, they deserve to grow into emotionally healthy adults who are able to celebrate themselves no matter what life throws at them.

Spreading JOY through the MAGIC OF BIRTHDAYS for the past seven years has been a gift to me! The mission is simple and clear: birthdays are special and EVERYONE deserves to be celebrated. Think of what this world could be like if EVERYONE felt that they were special?! That’s where the MAGIC happens!! Thank you TBPP for spreading SO MUCH JOY!!

One of the best parts of the parties each month is the birthday kids’ reactions when we place a whole smash cake in front of them and sing! They can’t believe they are getting a cake and a gift that is all theirs. I love watching their reactions and making memories with the kids and their families that will last a lifetime!

I work in the events industry and I have always loved celebrating birthdays. When I first heard about The Birthday Party Project, I thought "Wow! This sounds like a perfect opportunity to get involved with my community." What I didn't realize at the time was how much this organization would change MY life; our families, agencies, and volunteers are some of the most incredible people I have ever met. Every child deserves to be celebrated and I am humbled to have the opportunity to play a small role in this JOY-filled mission.
