CHARLOTTE, NC – We would like to offer our many thanks to TheMotherhood.com and Hebrew National for organizing the June 13 Better-Than-A-Picnic Picnic at Freedom Park. The aim of this picnic was to unite local residents for a day of activities, celebrating family and being outdoors—all while benefiting the local community. Hebrew National has been hosting picnics across the country, and Birthday Blessings was blessed to have been the charity of choice for Charlotte!

We are incredibly grateful to the local bloggers, (Rebecca from Letters From Crazyville, Maricris from Zen MamaVentures, Brittany from Mommy Words, and Julie from Mommie Cooks) who helped get the word out about Birthday Blessings. These fabulous mommy bloggers set up a birthday card station so picnic-goers could create original works of art to gift to the children we serve. They also collected tons of news toys, all of which will make it into the hands of homeless birthday children across the greater Charlotte area.

Despite the blazing heat, everyone had a great time and enjoyed delicious food provided by Hebrew National. There was even a mechanical bull, and music was provided courtesy of Kat Kountry 96.9 FM.  WSOC, News Channel 14, and WBTV even came out to capture all the fun.

Thanks to our volunteers, photographer Alison Koss of Bella Photography, and to the public who braved the heat!  We are so grateful for your support.
