Dear friends and family, Birthdays are truly special celebrations with loved ones, food and, of course, a delicious cake. Birthdays symbolize a day where you are the star. Unfortunately, for many homeless children, birthdays become a luxury. LITTLE BIRTHDAY ANGELS seeks to change that!
Please consider sharing my birthday with Little Birthday Angels by asking your friends and family to donate to LBA in leau of presents for you. You and your friends will feel extra special knowing that you are helping celebrate the birthday of a homeless child.
Little Birthday Angels is so excited to bring birthday gifts and coordinate birthday celebrations for our local homeless children whose birthdays might go uncelebrated. Every homeless child deserves to feel special on “their” day. “Their” day is a gift from God that deserves to be celebrated. They want to be God’s light for their path. At Little Birthday Angels’, their program begins by connecting with local shelters: The Hibiscus Children’s Center, the Samaritan Center, Hope for Families and Safe Space. The shelters provide wish lists from the children that will be celebrating their birthday the following month.
Their goal is to create an environment of pure excitement and joy for these children, most of which have never had their “own” special day celebrated. They arrive and decorate the party room from top to bottom with colorful decorations, provide games, cupcakes and goody bags for everyone and, of course, birthday presents. All the traditional trimmings of a child’s birthday party that most of us grew up anticipating every year. Their mission is to celebrate the birthday of every homeless child living on the Treasure Coast.
Their heart’s desire is to love these children not just with words, but with their deeds in hopes that every child will feel remembered, special and valued.
