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.
