Smiles, replace frowns. Creative games, replace boredom. Smiles, replace tears. Cheer, replaces anxiety. And, a single candle on a cupcake, shines brightly in the hearts of children who find themselves homeless on their birthdays. I just could not be more humbled and grateful to be part of an organization that promises to bring, even for a short while, joy into the lives of children who face homeless every day.

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

Make sure that they had enough funding to spread even more Birthday Cheer!

This is by far the best small Non Profit Organization around. I have helped with many and none compare to the dedication of the Executive Director at Beverly's Birthdays. Their only intent is to help the children. Amazing!

Beverly's Birthdays is a non-profit with a big heart, strong focus and passionate people; from each volunteer all the way up to the executive director. The growth that the organization has experienced in the last year is astounding, and has allowed Beverly's Birthdays to serve so many more children in need of some birthday cheer.

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

Continue to watch it grow, and hopefully expand its programs to more locations.

Beverly's Birthdays has provided an opportunity for homeless kids of all ages in the Pittsburgh region have birthday celebrations. Each birthday party is filled with games, gifts, and an abundance of smiles and laughter. More importantly, the children get a great childhood memory and a day to call their own. I am proud to support such a wonderful organization and can't wait to continue growing in 2013.

Beverly's Birthdays provides at-risk youth with a birthday party celebration and gifts that make them feel special on their special day! Beverly's Birthdays serves three shelters in the Greater Pittsburgh Area, allowing all children from that shelter to participate in monthly birthday celebrations. Each celebration is decided on by the child's age...ranging from Super Hero parties to Beach-themed parties! Different activities are created for each birthday party like pin the baseball on home plate and water balloon tosses. Each party also has crafts for the kids to make so everyone has something to call their own. After a pizza dinner, we sing "happy birthday" to the birthday boy or girl and they get to make a wish and blow out their very own birthday candles. In my family, birthdays are always a big celebration in which we are surrounded by family and friends. For these kids, they are not as fortunate, many of which never even have a birthday cake, let alone a party. Beverly's Birthdays mission is priceless...touching children in a way no other nonprofit can.

My wife started Beverly's Birthdays in order to help children in need. It has been an honor to be a part of the building of this great organization. Every party I attend is an absolute blast and you can see firsthand why the work we do is so important. Our family is deeply devoted to service and I love that we are able to contribute in such a positive way to our community.

It is so rewarding to be the Founder of Beverly's Birthdays. I am so grateful for the volunteers, friends and family who have helped make Beverly's Birthdays a reality. When Beverly told me how she had never had a birthday party or a slice of a birthday cake I was compelled to take action. I can't believe how far we have come in the last 18 months! Hooray for spreading birthday cheer!
