Everyone Loves a Birthday Party!
One of our best collaborations at The Blue Bunny has been with Joy Surprenant, founder of the non-profit Catching Joy. Her organization teaches young children the joy of volunteering and giving to others.
We have three new events planned with Joy, the first of which happens this Thurs. evening July 29th! It's a Special "Birthday Party" Storytime to help the local organization “Birthday Wishes” provide birthday parties for kids in area shelter homes. We’ll be reading birthday stories, decorating and filling goodie bags to donate, and capping off the night with yummy birthday cake.
All ages are welcome... we're just asking you to bring party favors to donate (no candy please, or under-3 choking hazards) or other party supplies in original packaging. See www.birthdaywishes.org for more info. FREE!
Other Catching Joy events include a "Save the Seals" Bedtime Storytime in August, and a haircutting event in September for the Pantene Beautiful Lengths hair donation for cancer patients program. Check our website for more info.
