When Megs met Beverly at a tutoring session, she didn’t realize it would be the start of a complete career change. But when she learned that Beverly had never had a birthday party, she felt compelled to do something. So, she applied for a grant from Scholastic, and much to her surprise, she won. Since then, her non-profit Beverly’s Birthdays has hosted birthday parties for thousands of kids, as well as provided support and essentials for homeless and low income families. Through the simple concept of a birthday party, Megs has changed the lives of thousands of families who just needed someone to acknowledge that they mattered on their very special day.
