The Northern Birthday Box Project
The Northern Birthday Box Project is a nation-wide Facebook group of volunteers who match sponsors from southern Canada with families in remote northern communities across the country to bring birthday fun to children aged 1-17, living in remote and Northern Canada. Each child is matched with a sponsor who gets the name, age, gender and party preferences of the birthday child.
Students in our Youth Revolution Groups from Waverly Park, École New Era School, Meadows School, and Vincent Massey High School eagerly volunteered to participate and prepared four boxes for children in the community of Nunavut. The boxes were stuffed with cake mixes, icing, streamers, balloons, and special hand-crafted decorations.
