Have you heard of The Birthday Party Project? It’s an organization, based out of Addison Texas but holding parties even in the Chicago area, focusing on the birthdays of homeless children. So often, children experiencing poverty and homelessness are forced to be concerned about the big things, the things that are necessary for survival: shelter; food; getting to and from school. The things that many of us take for granted, like celebrating holidays and birthdays, are treats beyond compare for these little ones. The Birthday Party Project tries to close that gap and make sure that any kid turning another year older will get to celebrate.
