2018 has started out with a Bang for Birthday Smiles. We are back on our regular schedule after many modifications due to the Holidays. We have reached a pretty impressive milestone, celebrating with over 9,000 children since our inception in 2009. It is hard to believe it has been 9 years since my little band of brothers and sisters decided that Birthday Smiles should be an important part in servicing the children in the homeless community. We have learned a lot, made some missteps, brought thousands of smiles and memories to the most amazing group of children we could have ever hoped to meet. They have become part of us and brought immeasurable joy into our lives. I have had 100's of volunteers throughout the years, all of which brought a special imprint on our organization, but there continues to be a core group that shows up each and every month......Angela Richburg and family who continue to organize the Comitis and Access Housing parties (my life would be mayhem without them), Mickie/Rich Archuleta, Ann Kalin, and Jin Loehmeir who show up each month at CCN and bring so much joy to this very special group of children. Ann Kalin also goes with me every month to House of Hope, she is amazing.
So many of you remembered us over the Holidays with donations of gifts, gift cards, and cash. I could not keep this going without your incredible support, so thank you, thank you, thank you!
Our schedule through June is listed on the Events Page
