Cheering for Cheer!

Twinning!

One simple goal - to make a child feel special.

Every child, regardless of personal, or financial circumstances deserves a very special birthday. Beverly’s Birthdays provides birthday cheer for children experiencing homelessness and families in-need. From the “birth” to the 18th birthday, and special milestones, in-between, we spread cheer 365 days a year!

The Beginning

A life-changing question

In 2011, our founder, Megs Yunn, met a young girl named, Beverly, at a local afterschool program. Megs was helping her with her reading homework and Beverly had to use the word accustomed to in a sentence. Not knowing the meaning of the word, Ms. Megs asked, “Beverly, at birthday parties, people are accustomed to eating what?” Inspired by this interaction, Megs decided to start the nonprofit, Beverly’s Birthdays, to provide meaningful birthday celebrations for children experiencing homelessness and families in need. Since 2012, the organization has supported thousands of birthdays, and the organization has grown to offer a variety of celebration based programming.
