I volunteered at Beverly's Birthdays two years ago with my work. Since that time, I tell everyone that I can about this wonderful organization. They bring birthday joy to children who, otherwise, might not experience the birthday joy we take for granted! Nothing but positive things to say about them!
The mission of Beverly's Birthdays is impressive. This stated I attended this not-for-profits annual fund raising event in 2017. I was not impressed with the management of the event and was not impressed with the leadership. The venue for the event, PNC Park, is a nice location, but is not designed to help this organization raise signficant funds that will help support the mission throughout the following year. The organizations leadership did not seem visible during the event and did not make a meaningful effort to thank the attendees and take the opportunity to use the time to raise significant funds. Further, it does not appear that current leadership has any not-for-profit management experience, thus hurting this organization from advancing further in overall funding growth. Leadership does appear to have passion for the mission, but does not seem to know how to manage that passion to turn the organization into a more powerful and helpful not-for-profit. I do not believe I will donate to this organization in the future given my obvservations from the event.
I honestly never even thought about children not having a birthday party until Megs started this amazing charity. Celebrating your birthday is something that is so normal for the rest of us that it's hard to imagine not doing it. The number of children this organization has helped is truly amazing! The volunteers work very hard to bring a little bit of fun and joy into these children's lives. I am in awe of exactly how many birthday parties they have but yet there are still more than could benefit from this charity.
Beverly's Birthdays continues to look for more children they can help. I love how they make sure kids have a treat to bring into school on their birthday. I can only imagine how embarrassing it would be for a child to not be able to share a treat with their classmates on their birthday. This organization makes sure these children don't have to worry about that and can focus on celebrating their special day.
You cannot measure just how valuable Beverly's Birthdays is to our community. As they continue to expand and work on touching more children's lives I can't wait to see what they do next!
This organization is so committed to such a simple task, spreading birthday cheer! Such a positive and happy organization to have in the community.
I met Megs two years ago at a rapid talk session facilitated by nonprofit organization, The Sprout Fund. As soon as she began her speech, I was intrigued. The desire to bring joy and celebration to those less fortunate is not an uncommon one. The ability to make it happen is. Megs and her troupe of birthday enthusiasts give to children what no one else can- the value of a birthday and the sense of importance and appreciation. While I am not able to donate enough of my time or earnings to Beverly's Birthdays, I am ever so grateful to have donated what I had. Many cheers for many years of birthday celebrations!
This is an amazing organization that brings so much passion, excitement, and commitment to the children of surrounding communities. I had the opportunity to volunteer and to see the shear joy on every kid's face was amazing. I was so impressed that I spoke with the President of my company and we will be putting on a pot luck lunch in to raise money for this organization.
What a great organization, amazing people, and even a better cause! I'm sure we can all look back and remember how great it was to have a Birthday Party. Every kid deserves that feeling & this organization works tirelessly to make that possible. Beverly's Birthdays is truly a n awesome orginization!!!
Beverly's birthday is a great organization. I see the photos of the kids at the parities and it's bring a joy to me knowing the won't go another year without a party. Mega Yunn and the entire Beverley's Birthday team are energetic, fun, wonderful people!
Thank you so much Cassie for the kind words!! We appreciate your support!
The organization started with such heart, and that overflows into every aspect of its operations. Even in my research to become involved, I can feel the energy and excitement that is committed. Not to mention what a tremendous need it fulfills – bringing recognition and joy to populations at risk. There is indeed more to celebrate!
