Birthdays for FIT Children

A few months ago I had my first tour of one of the many amazing Families in Transition locations in Manchester as part of the Manchester Chamber of Commerce's Leadership Program.  They provide housing and social services to over 600 people per year; helping families who have fallen on hard times get back on their feet.  I was startled to learn that over half of those 600 people are children.

Every two months they host birthday parties for the children who have had birthdays in that time period.  Often times the gifts are from toys donated which may or may not be what that child is interested in.  How awesome would it be to fund these birthdays for a full year so that the staff can actually go purchase specific toys for each child?!  That is what this go-fund-me page is all about.

Every birthday party includes, pizza and cake for each birthday child and their immediate family, entertainment or games, birthday gifts for each birthday child and goodie bags for each sibling.  Each party costs roughly $200 and they host 6 parties per year.  The goal is to fund this for 2 years ($2,400).  

I got together with the The Leadership Greater Manchester Class of 2017 and we already personally funded the first year.  We'd love if you could help us fund the second year and beyond!

These kiddos deserve an awesome birthday.  Let's make it happen for them.
