Everyone possesses talent. How one uses it makes all the difference.
When Jennifer Laws was in the hospital with her newborn twins and planning their future parties, her mind wandered to other babies in the world who were not born into such happy circumstances. Recently, she decided to use her party skills to make a difference.
Thanks to Jennifer, children who are in a local emergency shelter on their birthday will get the regulation cake from the kitchen--and they will also get a "party in a bag." It's a kit she created that helps each child, when surrounded by strangers on the anniversary of his or her birth, understand that someone knows their existence is worth celebrating.
I love this idea almost as much as I love Jennifer's heart.

She's funding this endeavor by creating designs that you can buy at her etsy shop.
Print and iron the design yourself or pay a little more for her to create the whole shirt.
What a simple way to celebrate your little ones and help celebrate another child as well!

Last month I witnessed the giddiness that is Jennifer on the morning of her sons' birthday party. "I love party day," she said, practically bouncing with joy. "This must be what Lebron James feels like on game day!"
Pretty accurate comparison.
