Imagine being a kid and never getting the chance to celebrate your birthday. Birthday celebrations are a huge deal for kids! Particularly when you see your classmates and friends having major bashes every year.
Well now, children in need are getting the birthday celebrations they deserve through the nonprofit Beverly's Birthdays. The founder, Megs Yunn, runs the organization and throws parties for 30,000 kids annually. The idea came to her after she met a young girl named Beverly, who told her that she never had a birthday or birthday cake. Besides planning birthday parties, Beverly's Birthdays has presents for the kids, and they include gifts such as coloring books and crayons.
