It takes a team of dedicated volunteers to make sure our mission is reaching out to as many communities as it can so foster kids everywhere have access to our free birthday celebration services. We're fortunate to have some of the best dedicating their time, energy, and expertise to our cause. Become a volunteer! Become a donor!
We are a registered non-profit that is dedicated to creating lasting memories for Georgia's foster kids. This is done through three distinct initiatives. (1) hosting birthday parties. (2) Holiday in the Home and (3) Soothing the Soul
Holidays in the Home: We partnered with an organization called YESS (Youth Empowerment Support Services) to provide support to youths who are transitioning out of foster care .
The Soothing the Soul is a program where we provide children entering foster care for the first time a duffle bag filled with essential items for their first couple of days in foster care (e.g., a 1 year old’s duffle bag would include, diapers, wipes, two outfits, a stuff animal, a book, and other toiletry items).
At our parties EVERY Birthday foster child receives a backpack, a book and a birthday gift of their choice. It is our hope that the backpacks allow them to be able to transport some of their personal and special belongings, should that situation arise. No more trash bags! We are strong proponents of literacy – thus the reason for the book. The personalized gift helps to show them that we care.
