As kids, what’s the one thing you always looked forward to, year after year? The time when family & friends came together to celebrate YOU. When you couldn’t wait to blow out the candles so you could stuff your face with cake. Your birthday! But, imagine being in the hospital during your yearly celebration and having to give up the balloons, the time with friends, the candles, and let’s be honest, the presents. Enters The Confetti Foundation.
The Confetti Foundation brings birthday celebrations to children who spend their birthdays in the hospital. How amazing & full of love is that?I don’t recall when I first discovered this adorable organization, but one thing’s for sure is that as soon as I heard about them, I KNEW I had to get involved.
As my organization of choice to give back to in 2015 (and plans for many years to come!), I recently partnered with the Confetti Foundation to become a birthday fairy. As a birthday fairy, idieh design sponsors birthday party kits and delivers them to my local children’s hospital, Phoenix Children’s Hospital.
Seeing joy replace the children’s current pain, if only for a few moments, makes my heart smile from end to end. Nothing brightens my day more than witnessing the children and their families have the chance to feel “normal” for a short time to celebrate a well-deserved birthday boy or girl.
I encourage you to find an organization to invest your time, talents and treasure in. Find something that makes your heart smile a little bigger. You never know the impact you could have on someone’s life. (If you want to get involved with this amazing organization, there are tons of ways to give back – big or small.)
