Bithday Blessing 1

At the September meeting, the HRAPA chapter will be collecting items for the BIrthday Blessing outreach. 

At Birthday Blessing they believe when children don’t receive a birthday present on their special day they feel left out and forgotten. Long-term, this can potentially damage a child’s self-esteem. In order to help these children, they have created Birthday Blessing, a non-profit organization which provides birthday presents anonymously to underprivileged children.

Visit the Birthday Blessing wish list. For more information on Birthday Blessing, Inc. take a look at their website and you will be hooked
