Catching Joy and The Blue Bunny in Dedham Square teamed up to support Birthday Wishes, a charity that brings birthday parties for kids in homeless shelters. Joy read birthday stories and kids made goodie bags and birthday cards. Everyone capped off the night with yummy birthday cake to celebrate the joy of giving! Thanks to all the kids who gave their care and creativity to help others. Thanks to all the families who donated party supplies. We are still collecting cards/supplies this weekend and will drop off everything to Birthday Wishes in the beginning of next week.
The mission of Birthday Wishes is to bring birthday parties to homeless children. Birthday Wishes recognizes the importance of a birthday in a child’s life and believes that the gift of a birthday celebration provides normalcy, joy and hope in these children’s otherwise unsettled lives.
