The Birthday Party Project

The Birthday Party Project (BPP) brings joy to homeless children through the magic of birthdays. With the help of its birthday enthusiasts, BPP hosts monthly birthday parties at homeless and transitional living facilities across the country. They celebrate all children (ages 1-22) that have a birthday that month, and invite all children and family members staying at the agency to join the party. The one-hour celebration is a chance for kids to dream big, and the BPP sees their parties as being much more than a celebration — they are a loud exclamation point that kids matter.

"Birthday enthusiasts" help create magical moments for the kids they celebrate by helping to set-up, decorate, light candles, hand out cupcakes, and connect with the birthday kids. To get started as a birthday enthusiast, head here.

Happiness is contagious at the Birthday Party Project's annual birthday party, the signature fundraising event that celebrates bringing joy to homeless children through the magic of birthdays. This wild party is both fun and fancy, and 100 percent of ticket sales and sponsorships go directly to throwing birthday parties at partner agencies.
