This is my official entry to Bebengisms’ Wooden Kiddie Stools Giveaway!
our family loves celebrating anything and everything, so birthdays are a big deal to us (and stress to the planner – me! heeehee).🙂
this year, daddy k would like a more meaningful celebration and has asked me to find a partner organization who can help us organize a party with orphans/street kids.
i initially contacted patricia bermudez-hizon and her everyday is your birthday foundation.
from their facebook page (it is not updated, last entry is dec 2012):
The EVERYDAY IS YOUR BIRTHDAY FOUNDATION helps people share their blessings with the less fortunate. We help develop programs and events for those who want to reach out to orphans, street kids, homes for the elderly, sick children, etc.
We have also been behind numerous relief operations around the country for many years and have gotten involved in sports programs for streetkids through the High Five Hope Foundation in several key cities.
We really just want to do what we can to help. What about you? Come share your blessings!
we had an exchange of emails, and she eventually referred me to pastor rachel sanchez, directress at the jesus loves the little children foundation, inc. they have a school where they educate and sponsor preparatory to grade 6 students – riversprings school, and is licensed by the department of education.
a visit to the school is scheduled this weekend so we can see the actual venue of the party, assess the number of kids and expected guests, discuss the final schedule of the party, etc.
meanwhile, there are a lot of things still pending in our checklist!
VENUE – check!
DECORS – balloons? buntings? do we have a theme?? (will see how the venue looks like first)

meanwhile, i saw mommy denise of bebengisms post on the 4th year anniversary of wooden kiddie stools and a lot more where they are sharing their blessings and giving away, as top prize, 30 PIECES OF WOODEN BASKETS customized according to your party theme.
