In March of 2011, Beverly’s Birthdays founder, Megan Yunn “Megs”, was volunteering at a local afterschool program and was helping a young girl named Beverly complete her homework. Beverly was asked to use the word “accustomed to” in a sentence. Trying to provide her with an example of how to use the word, Megs said “Beverly, at a birthday party people are accustomed to eating what?” Beverly responded, “I have never had a birthday party or a birthday cake.”

At 12 years old Beverly had never had a birthday party of her own. Inspired by Beverly’s story, Megs decided to start her own organization that provides birthday celebrations for homeless youth in the Pittsburgh Region. In June of 2011, Megs submitted her idea to the “BE BIG in Your Community Contest,” a signature component of the ongoing Clifford The Big Red Dog® BE BIG!™ campaign sponsored by American Family Insurance and was selected as a first place winner out of over 1,000 entries in the nation. Beverly’s Birthdays received a starter grant to help make Megs dream a reality.

Our Mission: We believe in spreading birthday cheer 365 days a year and that every child, regardless of personal or financial circumstances deserves a birthday celebration.

My name is Anna. I’m twelve years old and from New York City. I had an idea. I wanted to create a charity that throws birthday parties for children in need. There are so many kids who live in New York City and around the country who never get to celebrate their birthday, never get to know what it’s like to have a room full of people sing to them, close their eyes, blow out candles and make a wish or unwrap a gift. I want to change that, and with your help I know we can.

I’m not going to tell you that a cupcake can change someone’s life but people who care can! Every kid deserves a birthday! You can help make it possible. All we want to do is bring a little bit of happiness to someone’s day, celebrate them and let them know that they are loved.
