Birthday Wishes – Long Island
- The mission of Birthday Wishes is to give children living in or receiving aid from homeless shelters an amazing birthday every year. They serve children aged 1-17, and the parties they throw do more than just provide homeless children with a good time. They help build self-esteem and give the children a sense of normalcy during a tumultuous time in their lives. The Long Island chapter was created in 2008 and now serves children in over 81 different shelters across Long Island.
