There is nothing like celebrating your kid’s birthday—and as supermoms we sometimes spend months (and hours on pinterest) planning the special day. This year join Habitot Children’s Museum in making sure that the special birthday moment can happen for Bay Area kids who might otherwise not get to celebrate. Habitot’s birthday party campaign is raising money to give homeless children birthday parties and it’s easy to join the cause.

Did You Know?
One in 45 children experience homelessness and the stress affects kids deeply. They miss out on the best parts of being a kid, losing their sense of wonder and chance to just play. Since Habitot’s mission is to give kids a place to experience creativity and wonder, their commitment to giving kids back that joy is the goal of the birthday campaign.

The Low Down on Habitot’s Birthday Party Campaign
Make a donation today, and the money will go toward funding dozens of birthday parties for homeless children participating in Habitot’s homeless family program in 2014. Each party for the special boy or girl will include 2.5 hours of exclusive time in the Habitot Museum and up to 75 guests; a decorated party room with music, cake, goodie bags, and a special gift for the birthday child; supplies for the art-room; staff to help guide activities; transportation to the museum.

Habitot’s Birthday Party Campaign is setting its sights on raising $7,500. At the time of publication, Habitot had raised close to $5,000.
