About Birthday Wishes:
Birthday Wishes makes a difference in the lives of homeless children and their families by bringing them the joy of a birthday party. Birthday parties provide the opportunity for reflection, celebration, and hope. They are a common event in the lives of most families, but for children experiencing homelessness, families may be unable to maintain their routines and rituals. Birthday Wishes serves children living in more than 200 family shelters and transitional living facilities. Over 26,000 homeless children will experience a Birthday Wishes party each year.
