A little about Box of Balloons

Let’s face it. As momma’s our kids are our world, and we all like to give them the very best of whatever we can. We laugh with them, cry with them, cheer for them, teach them and above all we love to celebrate them. And once a year, they get a day to call their own. Their birthday; and they can’t wait for their birthday celebration!

Sometimes, it’s easy to forget to count our blessings every day. To stop amidst the craziness that is our busy lives, and look at all that we have and to be thankful. To some of us, it is hard to imagine the inability to give your child a simple birthday celebration but to many that is their hard reality. In 2012, Madison Wisconsin, had more than 881 homeless children! That’s about 445 homeless families. There are a lot of children in our own community struggling to find a warm meal and a place to lay their head. For these parents, and many others in different situations, birthday parties are not a possibility or priority.

Let me introduce you to Box of Balloons. A non-profit charitable organization on a mission to make each birthday happy and every child celebrated. At Box of Balloons, we believe that a birthday party is about more than just cute decorations, presents and cake. We believe that it is a celebration of a precious life, and a way to make each child feel special and celebrated.
