Research tells us birthdays are important.

Can you imagine as a parent not being able to provide your children with a birthday celebration?

Can you imagine as a child not celebrating your birthday because your family doesn’t have the financial resources?

Please explore our website to learn more about Birthday Connections.

Birthday Connections is a 501c3 nonprofit collaborating with local social service agencies to identify Kansas City urban
