Touching Lives…The Birthday Party Project


What they do:

“Bringing joy to homeless children through the magic of birthdays.” Once a month, this amazing organization teams up with homeless and transitional living facilities to throw birthday parties for the children with birthdays that month. The other children and the family  members also attend the festivities to help celebrate.

How it all started:

The Birthday Party Project was started in 2012 by Paige Chenault, former event planner.  When she was pregnant with her daughter, she picked up a magazine with a photo of a sad looking little homeless boy. As she sat dreaming of throwing birthday parties for her own daughter, she wondered if this little boy would ever feel special, celebrated.

So, she decided to put her talents to work and throw birthday parties for homeless children and in January, 2012, the celebrations began. It started with just one party a month, and has grown to more than 20 per month, in multiple cities across the country.

Mission Statement:

“Our mission is to bring JOY to homeless children through the MAGIC of birthdays.

We believe that JOY changes lives, and a JOYful community can change the world.

With the help of our birthday enthusiasts (that’s you!) we host monthly birthday parties at homeless and transitional living facilities across the country. We celebrate all children (ages 1-22) that have a birthday that month, and we invite all children and family members staying at the agency to join us for the party.

Our one hour celebration is a chance for kids to dream big! Our parties are so much more than a celebration – they are a loud exclamation point that kids matter!”

I just love this idea. These children have such a difficult time with life. At such a young age, they are already dealing with being homeless, wondering when the next meal will come or where they will sleep. It’s wonderful that at least once a year, they are made to feel special, feel celebrated, feel JOYFUL.

Until next time…Namaste my friends.
