 GBTA KC's 2017 Charity of the Year - The Birthday Party Project

The Birthday Party Project Mission is to Bring JOY to Homeless Children Through the Magic of Birthdays.  With the help of our birthday enthusiasts, we host monthly birthday parties at homeless and transitional living facilities across the country.  We celebrate all children that have a birthday that month, and we invite everyone staying at the agency to participate in the party!  We know that JOY changes lives, and a JOYful community can change the world.

Please look forward to details on events this summer, and how our December Social and Auction will benefit the project.  ________________________________________________________________________________________________
