Between the games, the friends, and (of course!) the cake, what’s better than a birthday? But the thousands of kids living in homeless shelters across the country don’t always get a party. Birthday Wishes, a Newton, Massachusetts-based nonprofit, is one of the organizations trying to change that. For the last 10 years, the group has provided treats, gifts, and paper goods to local shelters—and helped throw parties for more than 24,000 kids. Inspired?
