• Party Like It’s Your Birthday •

The Confetti Foundation’s main mission is to supply a birthday party to a child who has to celebrate their special day while admitted to a hospital. Our founder, Stephanie (who is also a professional event planner) has personally been donating her time and resources each month to Hasbro Children’s Hospital where she throws a “Party like it’s your birthday ™” party. These “unbirthday parties” have been a highlight for her and a reminder that when you are hospitalized you do not get to go all of your friends birthday parties, something all kids look forward too. These parties are thrown in a community room (at Hasbro it is the Izzy Room) and the room is decorated with a birthday theme, cupcakes are served, games are played, special guests are invited, and party favors are given. Everyone who is admitted to the hospital that day is invited to this party.

January 1, 2019 marks our own 5th birthday. We are celebrating in a BIG way. Stephanie will be traveling across the country to host a “Party like it’s your birthday party” at various children’s hospitals! Check out our CALENDAR to see where we will be next!

On behalf of Morgan Stanley Children’s Hospital, I’d like to thank you for everything you did in facilitating yesterday’s “Party Like it’s Your Birthday” event. Our families are still raving about the party and are asking when you’re planning to come back! The primary purpose of Wintergarden Programming is to provide the patients and families a temporary distraction from illness and treatment. We believe these events are not only vital to the overall health and well-being of the children, but also enable them to feel like normal children. The event played a profound impact on our guests and we are eternally grateful for everything you did to make it possible. Please extend my sincerest gratitude to everyone involved in helping create an awesome environment for our patients and families.
