Birthday Boxes for Foster Kids!!!!
Help make a foster kids birthday!
Growing up my mom made our birthdays such a special day! We didn't always have a birthday party, but she made sure our day was special. Birthday's are still a big deal to me. I like to celebrate my birthday for an entire month. I make a big deal out of George's birthday each year too.
Recently I read on Facebook about a company called Together We Rise that help do special things for foster kids. Foster kids have become very special to my heart over the past year as my cousin has become a foster parent. I wish I could take in a housefull of foster kids. At this time in our lives it isn't something we can do, but that doesn't mean we can't do things for foster kids. We donate to clothing, toys, school supplies etc to foster kids each year. There are so many kids in foster care that do not get a birthday party. Together We Rise has started a new Birthday Box Program. The boxes come with tissue paper, a crown, noise maker, blow horn, birthday banner, squirt animal, birthday card, stickers, candles, candy, 5 party poppers, 5 balloons and gift card for ice cream.
My goal is to raise enough money over the next 3 months to donate 30 boxes to foster kids. It costs $25 for each of the birthday boxes. I would love to make 30 kids birthday's this year!!! Any donation towards the birthday boxes would be greatly appreciated!
I am doing this in honor of my dear friend Adriana who lost her life earlier this year. Foster children were so special to her. She talked to me often about her plan to become a foster parent one day. In honor of her 30th birthday I am raising 30 boxes!
