You know, life is incredibly short. No matter how long you are lucky to live. And sometimes people live a long life, in harsh circumstances. A long life that is dry. Devoid of hope. Devoid of play. Devoid of simple pleasures, and childhood memories. Like having a party, a birthday cake and eating it, too!

We’ve forgotten what it means to be a kid. And we forget that we have so much; we take it all for granted. But, you can create some great memories, and light up the day for children so far away from your own reality. Children coping with difficulties we cannot imagine. Children living in Gaza. Buy yourself a birthday party. Or buy it as a gift for someone you care about. It’s easy to do. Here’s the link:…/birthday-party-donation.

Lynda, thank you. Thank you for your continued generosity and support of Hope and Play. Thank you for buying this party for Iyas (Hope and Play founder and trustee). Thank you for warming up these tiny hearts who deserve so much and have so little. Thank you for giving them the gift of allowing them to be children, wonderful and carefree, like all kids should be.
