When natural disasters, financial woes, and other crises disrupt young kids’ lives, forcing their families to take up residence in homeless shelters, the importance of meeting essential needs tends to take precedence over everything else. Consequently, birthday celebrations can fall by the wayside. Believing that every child deserves to be celebrated, Iced Capades Cakery organizes birthday parties for young children living in homeless shelters.
Iced Capades’ teenaged cofounders, Allison and Laura, arrange the get-togethers and prepare sweet treats, such as homemade cupcakes with rainbow sprinkles, for the birthday boy or girl and up to 30 guests. The events are designed to reinforce kids' sense of self worth by giving them a special day on which they can feel praised and loved. In addition to the cupcakes, each birthday party also includes games and party favors.
Join G-Team and donate $10 to help provide birthday parties for kids living in homeless shelters. If G-Team members raise $400, then Iced Capades Cakery can organize birthday parties for four children experiencing homelessness. Each additional $100 raised will fund a birthday party for another child.
Unlike traditional Groupon deals, G-Team campaigns typically don't offer you a "discount" or "savings." So "buyer" beware—when you click "Buy" to donate your time or money to a worthwhile G-Team cause, the only discount you may receive is 100 percent off free, priceless karma. Read more about G-Team.
