The (Awesome, Amazing, Soul-Enriching, Totally Inspiring) Birthday Party Project

I have the incredible honor of sitting on the executive board of The Birthday Party Project, an amazing non-profit here in Dallas whose mission is to bring joy to homeless children through the magic of birthdays. The organization goes into over a dozen homeless shelters in our region (and soon other regions...) each month and orchestrates celebrations for children who might otherwise see their special day come and go with zero fanfare. The simple gesture is designed to help children understand that they are valued, loved, and important -- no matter what their circumstances.

Friends, I love this organization. (Watch this video and you will too...I promise.)

Today is North Texas giving day, so (even if you don't live in North Texas), it's a great opportunity to help support this awesome organization. From 6:00 am-midnight, all donations $25 and above donated to The Birthday Party Project will be amplified with bonus funds. (Our goal is to raise $5,000 today, so we can grow to more agencies in North Texas and move into other markets across the country.) No pressure, but if you're feeling it, well, you know the rest...
