What comes after Black Friday and Cyber Monday? GIVING TUESDAY, which is a global day dedicated to giving back! Today, people around the world are joining together to celebrate generosity and to give. How amazing is that?! You can learn more about Giving Tuesday here.
In honor of Giving Tuesday, we'd like to highlight an amazing organization we are so happy to support. As an event planning company, Sensational Soirees is all about celebrating others and making their special events sensational. Additionally, as a mother of 2, I'm always drawn to great initiatives for children. When I learned about the non-profit organization, The Confetti Foundation, I was so inspired by their mission and immediately wanted to join their great cause to provide party starter kits to children who have to spend their birthdays in the hospital. The foundation was started with the hope that families will be able to shift their focus from their child’s sickness for just 30 minutes and celebrate. Although the party is not a cure, it will be a welcome distraction and good reminder that every child deserves to be celebrated.
The Confetti Foundation has been recognized by the state of Rhode Island as a charitable organization, and is an approved 501(c)(3) non profit organization. Through the Partnership of Children’s Hospitals, The Confetti Foundation hopes to be accepted into all 50 states with the help of volunteers, better known as birthday fairies and heros. I'm so proud to share that Sensational Soirees is the official birthday fairy for the Washington, D.C. area participating hospital, HSC Pediatric Center. We are excited to give our time to help brighten up children's birthdays!
