Our Mission

Because every child deserves a happy birthday with friends

crowdFunnit

Helping a friendless child celebrate a birthday is just an incredible mechanism in which to help make this happen. The party itself and any media attention it brings will help fight bullying at the root while the community connections will exist long after the party ends.

crowdFunnit

crowdFunnitAt the core crowdFunnit brings people together, raising
awareness about differences while fostering acceptance and compassion for children with a communication impairment. Helping a friendless child celebrate a birthday is just an incredible mechanism in which to help make this happen. The party itself and any media attention it brings will help fight bullying at the root while the community connections will exist long after the party ends.  Our most recent party is a perfect example of this recipe for success.  Learn more at crowdFunnit.org
