The Birthday Party Project!

Thu July 6 at 6:00 PM, A Safe Haven
2750 W Roosevelt Rd, Chicago, IL, USA (Map & Directions)
So this was the event The Chicago Cabal* was hoping to do but the list was already full. One of the organizers just reached out to me today because they had a whole group of six volunteers bail and they're really hoping we can fill the gap and help them throw a great birthday party for some wonderful kids!
Unfortunately, I can't go, as I'll be in California, but maybe you can! Here's the scoop straight from my organizer friend Lindsay:

Volunteers have to fill out an $8 background check here before they can sign up, it takes 48 hours to process.
Go to:
Scroll to "New to the party?" and create an account, complete the background check.
When cleared, sign up for the July 6th party at A Safe Haven in Chicago.

Adult volunteers can also bring kids that are 7 or older. They don't need to bring anything with them---I have all the games, presents, and food---they'll just help run the activities, serve pizza or cupcakes, and just generally make sure all the kids and their moms are having a good time. We'll party outside in the shelter's giant courtyard. There's visitor parking on site or street parking on California.

Kay and I did it last year and had a ton of fun. The kids are really, really great and it's a hoot watching them go nuts for silly little toys. I'm so sorry I can't be there, but hopefully a couple of you can jump in and make their day!

If you're waiting on your background check, please mark your attendance as a "Maybe" so I can get an early headcount for Lindsay. Thanks!
