The Problem

Project Summary: This project aims to bring joy and a sense of normalcy to the lives of underserved children in foster care, homeless shelters, and rehabilitation centers by providing them with personalized birthday celebrations centered around delectable cupcakes. By baking and delivering cupcakes to these children on their special day, we hope to create cherished memories and demonstrate that they are valued and deserve to be celebrated. Project Goals: To provide underserved children with a memorable birthday celebration that they may not otherwise have. To bring joy and happiness to children who have faced challenging circumstances. To instill a sense of hope and self-worth in these children. To foster a sense of community and support among underserved children.

Our Plan

1. Establish partnerships with local foster care agencies, homeless shelters, and rehabilitation centers to identify children who would benefit from birthday celebrations. 2. Develop a menu of cupcake flavors and designs that cater to the preferences of children of various ages and backgrounds. 3. Recruit and train volunteers to bake and decorate cupcakes, ensuring adherence to food safety standards. 4. Coordinate with partner organizations to schedule birthday celebrations and arrange for cupcake delivery. 5. Capture photos and gather feedback from children and staff to assess the project's impact. Project Timeline: Month 1: Establish partnerships and develop cupcake menu. Month 2: Recruit and train volunteers. Month 3: Begin cupcake delivery and celebration activities. Month 4: Ongoing cupcake delivery and celebration activities. Month 5: Project evaluation and feedback collection.
