The Confetti Foundation

The Confetti Foundation
Posted in:

When Stephanie Frazier Grimm would visit her godson in the hospital, she’d notice that the hospital gave kids a present on their birthdays but that there weren’t parties. Recalling her own thirteenth birthday spent in the hospital, she decided to change how hospitalized children celebrate and founded the Confetti Foundation. The foundation delivers a birthday box with handmade birthday cards, party supplies, a toy, a book, crayons, colored pencils and other supplies for kids who are in the hospital or hospice. Families can request one of more than a hundred birthday boxes with themes ranging from Fortnite to unicorns. And when there’s a special request, like one family’s request for a “camouflage” birthday, the foundation finds a way to pull it off. The birthday boxes even include a roll of tape so that families, who often don’t leave their sick child’s side, can hang up the streamers, banner and decorations. The organization needs volunteers to make birthday cards and birthday banners, and you can also donate $50, which covers the cost of a birthday box and shipping to a hospital.
