Help Sponsor a Birthday Party for a Homeless Child

Indiegogo CampaignI know that planning a kids' birthday party can be expensive. So imagine planning one for your child if you're homeless, and want your child to feel special. Two Habitot board members launched an Indiegogo campaign to raise funds for local homeless children to have special birthday parties at Habitot in 2014.

They're trying to raise $7,500 and are more than $3,600 there as of this writing. The party would include cake, gifts and party favors for the child and friends. Habitot already helps homeless families, and have been doing outreach and sponsoring family visits here for five years. I just contributed myself.

I've been seeing families on my various email groups and Facebook groups asking how their kids could volunteer and make a difference. This is one way. How great would it be for a child to participate in helping a less fortunate child have a great birthday party when they may not get to celebrate otherwise.
