“When you are homeless, the system reminds you of that everyday. Today my daughter did something normal, she went to a birthday party.” —Mom at EOB Party
Being able to wish for a birthday that speaks to their interests, wish for their favorite cake, and wish for a specific gift are all elements that EOB provides to homeless children to address those emotional needs that help raise their self-image.
Although the crisis in family homelessness continues to grow, the personalized birthday celebrations that Extra-Ordinary Birthdays provide give homeless children and their families a moment of normalcy despite their circumstances and shelter settings.
Your donation is not just about celebrating a birthday—which every child deserves, but it is also about being able to be a part of helping homeless children grow and develop despite their circumstances.
