It is my birthday and I'd love for you to help me celebrate it by giving to a cause we can all believe in: helping kids living in poverty achieve their potential. Right now there's so much chaos in the world, but there is also hope. And I am quite positive our biggest hope comes in very small packages. Those small packages happen to be little kids :) Instead of buying me a birthday drink, dinner, and/or those shoes I've had my eye on (wink-wink), I ask you to please deposit your party fund in this electronic donation bin. By doing this you will create a ripple effect of awesomeness in many lives and it will give you a big smile, a tax write-off, and no hangover :) The Children's Aid Society, a nonprofit organization, has been supporting young people across NYC for 160+ years and has the highest ranking by Charity Navigator. If everyone donates $10-15 we can EASILY raise $1500! All proceeds will support Children’s Aid’s work in education, family stabilization, health and mental health services, and many other critical programs for NYC children and families in need. You can also donate toys, clothes, books, and school supplies anytime here. Thank you from the bottom-to-the-top of my heart for helping me celebrate my, um, 26th, um birthday like this! Also, thanks to Christopher Radicone and Daniel Stern of Children’s Aid for helping me put this together. Feel free to share this with everyone. Love, love, love and happy birthday to me!
