Birthdays might just be my favorite type of celebration, everyone has one and no matter how old you get it’s still a special day all about you! I also think it’s the perfect time to reflect on the success of the past year and start dreaming even bigger for the year ahead. Well, it just so happens that today is MY birthday! It’s no secret that I love a good celebration, yet I rarely do anything when it comes to my own birthday. But this year I’m celebrating all week by giving you the chance to win goodies from some of my favorite companies in My Favorite Things Birthday Giveaway!
Before we get to the giveaway a little history…I was inspired to share my birthday by The Birthday Party Project, an amazing organization that I’ve been fortunate to volunteer with the past year. The Birthday Party Projects mission is to bring joy to homeless children through the magic of birthdays. By partnering with homeless shelters, TBPP provides birthday parties and gifts for all their resident children between the ages of one and eighteen. Each birthday kid receives a crown, ribbon, personal cake and a $30.00 gift – the other kids participate in celebrating with activities and cupcakes! I believe that everyone deserves to feel like a king or queen on their special day and I love that TBPP is made it their mission to give children a birthday celebration they will never forget.
So while I’ve got an awesome giveaway planned for you today, I’d also be extremely appreciative to anyone who believes in the values and mission behind The Birthday Party Project to take a moment to CELEBRATE in sharing my birthday with a donation to TBPP. If you are like me and can’t resist picking up pretty party supplies then you can check out their WISH LIST and send items directly to TBPP for use at their next celebration. There is also an option to make a direct DONATION, it all helps bring the magic of birthdays to children in need. **If you do send a donation or item from the wish list please let them know it’s for “Mariah’s Share Your Birthday Celebration” so I can properly thank you. Oh, and feel free to tag #shareyourbirthday or #givingisgood online.**
