Every child deserves to celebrate their birthday. But for families living in the shelter system, having resources to throw a bash isn’t always attainable. That’s where Schinnell Leake comes in. With her non-profit Extra-Ordinary Birthdays, she partners with shelters to throw personalized birthday parties for kids, giving them a moment to celebrate themselves. The program aims to give families a little bit of hope, a chance at normalcy and a whole lot of cake.
