One Special Day
Steffi felt the urge to do something special for these foster children. She was unable to shake the thought that many of them are not with their parents on their birthday. Even those lucky enough to be with a foster family, birthdays are often forgotten and not celebrated due to a lack of resources.
What if the community could help make a difference for them on their one special day?
Ben was working at Blackbaud on the day he received the text message from Steffi that he would never forget. It said:
“I am starting a nonprofit and I need your help. Will talk tonight. Love you!”
He called her back immediately to find out what she was thinking. She told him that she wanted to start a nonprofit called Birthdays For All to provide birthday presents to children in foster care in the Lowcountry.
