A special Saturday post as I'm Sharing My Birthday for #givingisgood

I rarely if ever post on the weekend as I like to save my blogging for the work week and the weekends are spent focusing on my family. Plus, this way, when you arrive on the weekend, you can get caught up on the posts from the week you might have missed :)

Today is a special day, not only because it's my birthday, but because I along with several others in the twitter world, in particular Jacin of Lovely Little Details, are Sharing Our Birthday. Jacin introduced me to The Birthday Party Project and I knew right away I wanted to help. Paige started this organization and she partners with homeless shelters so all resident children from ages 1 to 18 will be provided with a birthday party and gifts. Hearing about amazing people like Paige makes me happy, and even happier when I can help out. There are many ways you can help out with The Birthday Party Project including money donations, volunteering and sending items to fulfill the birthday wish list. I headed to our local Target the other day and picked up a bunch of goodies {candles, gift bags, birthday badges, napkins, and items for the goody bags}. I'll be getting them ready to ship this week and love knowing that I will be able to put a smile on a child's face.

Should you choose to either donate or put together a package of goodies - you can share it online using the hashtags #shareyourbirthday #givingisgood
