With all that’s going on in the world, it’s hard to turn around and ignore all the need out there. We recognize that not everyone is gifted or able to work in relief agencies, but we do believe that everyone is able to make a difference. It doesn’t matter if you take big steps or little steps towards helping others, but it’s when we step together that can change lives.
Started in 2012 by two stay-at-home moms, the Happy Birthday Project was started with the mission to bring joy and magic to children whose families are facing financial hardships by alleviating the stress and financial burden that often coincides with kids' birthday parties.
As of Feb 20, 2019, the Happy Birthday Project has thrown 1771 birthday parties for kids who would have otherwise gone without a celebration. We all know how great it feels to be celebrated- whether through a large soiree, or a small get together with those closest to us, there is something inside of us that loves that affirmation, love and joy that comes with a party in our honour.
"We believe every child deserves to feel special and celebrated on their birthday. Our mission is to bring the magic of birthdays to children living in shelters and in poverty situations by providing a party pack that includes all the decorations and supplies needed to have a birthday party; as well as new gifts, books and clothing for the birthday child. Birthdays are special and all kids are worth celebrating!"
A portion of every order made at Apostle will go to the Happy Birthday Project to help them bring some joy and magic to a child's life.
