Nonprofit Spotlight: The Celebration Projects

The Celebration Projects helped make Monyce’s 4th birthday memorable with an ice cream truck, cake and lots of children running around, having a good time with her family at Jarvis Creek playground. The party was hosted in a socially responsible way with lots of masks, sanitizer and plenty of fun.

MISSION

To provide deserving children in need with a birthday party. Something as simple as a birthday party has the power to change the course of a young person’s life. The benefits go beyond the birthday party itself. The parties promote self-confidence, self-worth, and foster inclusion, reduce bullying, connect people and bring joy.

HISTORY

The Celebration Projects is a nonprofit organization founded by Libby O’Regan, Amanda Spencer, Ashley Gluck and Mick Kuehn in 2020. Within days of launching during COVID, dozens of businesses pledged their support, donating services and products.

WHOM IT HELPS

Children, ages 1-17, who are residents of Bluffton, Hilton Head and the surrounding Lowcountry. The organization aims to serve children who have faced adversity whether that be through learning disabilities, physical disabilities, mental illness or children who experience financial hardship.

HOW TO HELP

The organization is seeking donations of products and services from local businesses in the restaurant/food industry, bakeries, entertainment, children’s activity spaces, photographers and videographers and rentals. The organization also accepts cash donations to be used to fund the parties. To nominate or apply a child, submit a short application online.
