Borrowing from the "Un-Birthday Party" scene in Alice in Wonderland, The Red Balloon Project puts on themed parties for seriously-ill kids, their friends and families to create a memory that will endure. Young children who are battling serious illnesses may miss their birthdays because they are in the hospital or their family may lack the resources to put on a party. They also miss chances to go to their friends parties. We try to replace those missed opportunities with one awesome experience at our parties! We will also send out our Dream Team to your party - read more here.
I was sitting at lunch with my good friend, Allen Smith, in 2008 when I got a call from my wife telling me that a little girl we knew had been diagnosed with an inoperable tumor on her brainstem. Our passion for serving kids living through a serious health challenge was born there and held true all the way through the creation of The Red Balloon Project.
