On Saturday evening, after our awesome fundraiser at Endorphasm, we threw a birthday party for the sweetest 2-year-old at Safe Harbor RVA.
Because we go to great lengths to protect our friends (and take their privacy very seriously) that stay at Safe Harbor, we don’t take many photos and are very careful about what details we share. We couldn’t resist snapping one of the cutest Doc McStuffins table decorations!
Our birthday girl was so excited to see one of her favorite characters, Doc McStuffins, on a few of her decorations. We are so thankful that we had these materials in our collection of donated party supplies. (If you’d like to go shopping and pick up some party supplies, email firstname.lastname@example.org for our wish list!) We played in the sprinklers, ate pizza, sang happy birthday, and watched a darling little girl make a wish for the next year of her life when she blew out those candles on her cake.
At a celebration at Safe Harbor, we have a big job. Because we can only bring in a certain number of volunteers, we want enthusiastic, loving, and understanding people who recognize the sensitive situation we are entering into, but who are just as passionate about bringing joy and happiness into the space.
It said it all when a little boy living in the home, when he saw that our time together was coming to a close, began to cry because we were leaving, along with the celebration. It’s our hope that he will continued to be celebrated and see just how deeply every child is loved by the folks at Safe Harbor and celebrate! RVA — but most importantly, the Richmond community.
