I am beyond proud to support this organization. The staff and board brilliantly deliver on a special mission to organize birthday parties for economically-disadvantaged children who otherwise might not be celebrated on their special day.

Beverly's birthdays rocks! I have a child who has passed away which mean no mo birthdays for her. Then I met Megs. And I could hear my child. Her mom help others have birthdays since I can't. So last year my family took a collection and we donated in Delaneys name. And then my kids preschool made a box and took donations of party items. We have just finished collections this year for this wonderful group. I love that someone has party's for kids whose family can't have them This is the best what child wants to be without a cake or a party for their birthday? Non and because of Beverly's birthdays that won't happen!

I met Megs at a tupperware meeting where she was telling us about Beverley's birthday. I sat in the back of the room and knew my daughter who has passed away sent her to me. I have struggled the last 10 birthdays because I can't have parties with my daughter anymore. Here was my way to fix that. Help someone else who helps kids have awesome bday parties. S this year for my daughters birthday the preschool she went to did donations for Delaney. We have a box full of things to be delivered soon. Also since it was my daughters 13th birthday (10 th in heaven) we had a party and we have many others things to deliver too. I love this group and want to start volunteering.

I've watched this organization grow from grass roots to an amazing community partner. Meg's and Josh work tirelessly to assure that no child, despite sometimes unimaginable situations, go unrecognized on their birthday. Their mission is so pure....it's perfect. Hands down, the most altruistic non-profit I've ever come across!

This organization is the most altruistic group I've ever had the blessing to be associated with. Birthday parties for homeless children are only part of the story. Making a marginalized child feel special and important...well that's just priceless! I can't think of a more worthy cause.

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

Nothing. They are doing everything right. Young adults with big ideas and the belief that anything is possible!

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.

The concept is simple and very profound. To see the smile in the face of the children is priceless. The day I heard about them in CBS, I was touched and became a full supporter of their cause. I watch them grow consistently. I am a donor to support their cause. I teach in a Sunday school and I sincerely wish to partner with Beverly's Birthdays by involving the youth in our Sunday school to volunteer and support their cause. I actively campaign for them among my friends circle.

I have known the founder of Beverly's Birthdays, Megs Yunn, for many years. She has the biggest heart and the most creative sense of service of anyone I know. When she first told me about Beverly and her idea for this organization I was hooked. The love that she puts into every aspect of it from training the volunteers to the birthday in a box is beyond measure. I don't live in the area but I hope to visit on a party day so I can see first hand the excitement in the kids eyes when the party starts. Pittsburgh is lucky to have such a wonderful person leading such a fabulous organization!!

My daughter created Beverly's Birthdays in order to provide birthday celebrations for homeless children living in shelters in the Pittsburgh area. I am so proud of the work she and the team have accomplished. It is an honor to donate to this fantastic organization--every dime is a dime well spent! Each month I donate the birthday party craft and it is so rewarding to know that the children enjoy the activities. I have helped create spider hats, baseball pennants, guitars, and a mad scientist game. Get involved with this great organization and help them to spread birthday cheer! www.beverlysbirthdays.org
