Birthday Wishes brings the magic of a birthday party to thousands of homeless children each year. Founded in 2002 as a volunteer organization serving one local shelter, Birthday Wishes has expanded its program to serve more than 175 shelters and transitional living facilities in Massachusetts, Rhode Island and Long Island, New York. In 2012 19,500 children experienced the magic of a Birthday Wishes party, due in part to the amazing number of volunteers who help us each month.
Mission: The mission of Birthday Wishes is to provide birthday parties for children living in homeless shelters throughout New England. We believe that all children, regardless of their living situation, should celebrate their birthdays joyfully, surrounded by family, friends, and others who care.Our grassroots philosophy fosters the spirit of volunteerism and community service in the adults, children and families who donate their time and resources to our mission.
