Happy Birthdays Participates in Amplify Austin

Happy Birthdays is excited to participate in Amplify Austin for our second year! Amplify Austin is an annual city wide day of giving that connects our wonderful neighbors and friends to the charities they care about and we hope that Happy Birthdays is one of the places you support.
Amplify Austin starts at 6pm on March 2 and ends at 6pm on March 3, that is 24 hours of impact from generous donors like you! Our goal is to raise $15,000 to continue to provide Birthday Parties in a Box to local homeless and foster children.
Happy Birthdays provides everything needed for a birthday party from cake and icing to the present and balloons in a beautifully wrapped box delivered to one of 18 locations in and around Austin. It is our mission to let these children know they are special and that their community cares for them. For many of our client children, the box they receive from Happy Birthdays is the first time their birthday was acknowledged in a meaningful way. The impact of a party from Happy Birthdays is felt long after the party is over and the memories will last a lifetime.
To reach our goal, we need your help! There are three ways to do just that:
  1. Visit the Happy Birthdays Page on the Amplify Austin website and click the green “donate now” button to schedule a donation.
  2. Forward this email to friends, family and coworkers and ask them to support Happy Birthdays or share our Happy Birthdays Page on your Facebook, Twitter or Instagram account.
Thank you so much for your generosity! Through the wonderful donations of people just like you Happy Birthdays has been able to provide Birthday Joy to almost 1400 local homeless and foster children in just 2 short years and we hope to be able to make that number continue to grow.

Sharing our birthday mission from Oklahoma!

We received two perfect birthday boxes in the mail along with this beautiful letter. It explains perfectly why Happy Birthdays is so important to us! Thank you, David Clark and family. 

Dear Happy Birthdays Staff,

Enclosed, please find two birthday party boxes. There is one for a girl, and one for a boy. My children assembled the boxes and we hope that they will be of use to you and the clients that you serve. We would like to thank you for your efforts in meeting a need that so few people understand. Children who have suffered terribly and are now in the foster care system will have a special day, because of you.

In the late 1990’s I worked as a Child Protective Services Specialist covering Hill, Falls, Hamilton, and Bosque counties. During that time I had to place a number of children into shelters and foster homes around Central Texas, so your charity has a special meaning for me. I applaud you for the work you do and hope to be able to support you for years to come.

Additionally, I would like to thank you for providing an opportunity to introduce the importance of serving others to my children in a way that is impactful to them. Being separated from everything familiar, regardless of the negative circumstances from which they were taken, and not having a “birthday’ which is something so special to children, is a concept that seems to have resonated with my daughter and son. Though young (6 and 4), they were able to understand how important a party and gifts would be to a child in that situation. They were joyful in picking out the party supplies and gifts, and in assembling their boxes. They understood that what they were doing would have a positive impact on a child who they will likely never meet. My hope is that this will plant a seed in them that will be cultivated into a lifelong dedication to service. Thank you for that.

Sincerely,
David Clark
Edmond, OK
