Celebrating the lives of children in foster care, one box at a time.
To provide joy, hope and normalcy to children in foster care through a personalized birthday experience.
We aim to create a moment of connection between the child and a loving adult, opening a path for healing through joy.
To celebrate and recognize children in foster care on their special day.

Pop-Up Birthday received its 501c3 non-profit status in September 2015 and has since celebrated over 3,700 children to date.
