Unbirthday Party Fundraiser

Our Story

We are a group of homeschool families—three moms, one grandma, and six elementary school children. Our children wanted to do something to help refugees after reading about the family of orphans in Gertrude Warner‘s The Boxcar Children.  They recognized that the exciting adventures of the fictional family would be much different in real life.  We are raising funds to support RefugePoint, a nonprofit that finds the world's most vulnerable refugees, including orphaned children, and helps them resettle in permanent, safe locations and rebuild their lives with dignity.

Everyone who donates on our page is invited to an “Unbirthday Party” on Saturday, August 27, 2016, 2-4 PM, in Cypress, California. (We will tell you the street address through the email account you provide with your donation.)  We aren't setting a minimum donation amount, because we know that every little bit helps—especially from children. If you'd like a suggestion, you might consider how much your family would spend on a typical birthday party gift. 

At the party, each of our children—ages 4 to 10—will be hosting an activity station loosely inspired by the book, Summer of the Sea Serpent, by Mary Pope Osborne.  We invite you to read the book in advance.  It is a fun story about mythical creatures and children who work together to accomplish a goal.  Guests will be voting for their favorite book character at the party.  

P.S.  Please use the comment section to tell us how many people will be coming to the party!
