Get your party hat on - it’s time to make a difference!
Hey there, birthday enthusiast! We need your help to make birthday celebrations happen. Birthdays are for everyone – and so are our opportunities to make magic!
Calling All Birthday Enthusiasts!
After a two-year hiatus, we are so excited to get back to the heart of our mission: hosting in-person celebrations at our agency partners! Click the link below to see our opportunities.
We also offer volunteer opportunities at our Headquarters in Dallas! Join us to wrap gifts, fill our birthday in a bag, and help us prepare for parties! Click here to learn more about group opportunities.
Other Ways to Get Involved
Assemble Favor Bags
Favor bags are a fun part of every party! We include a favor bag in all of our "Birthday in a Bags" and hand out one to each kid and teen that comes to one of our in-person parties. Find out how to assemble favor bags by clicking here.
Shop Our Wishlist
Shop our wishlist to purchase a gift for one of our birthday kiddos! This list is updated daily in hopes of bringing birthday JOY to our kiddos. Just imagine their face when they unwrap their gift!
Share Your Birthday
Celebrate your next birthday by sharing it with those who may not be celebrated otherwise! By setting a monetary goal or collecting new, unwrapped toys at your party – you can make a big impact in the birthdays of others.
Make Birthday Cards
Share your creativity with your community! We attach a birthday card to each gift and homemade cards are so special. You can find all the details for creating birthday cards by clicking here.
Send us a Virtual Birthday Wish!
Record a video wish for one of our birthday kids! Be silly, be sweet, be simple-just be YOU! We will send your wishes directly to one of our birthday kiddos to watch on their birthday! Click here for instructions on creating your virtual birthday wish.
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.
