Box of Balloons is a non-profit organization on a mission to make each birthday happy and every child celebrated. Every child deserves to feel special, be celebrated and have a memorable party. Unfortunately that is not possible for many families. In America 18% of children live below the poverty level. We believe that a birthday celebration can give families the joy and hope they may be missing.

Founded in 2020, Mobile Cat Society is 501c3 nonprofit organization, active in local TNR efforts, rescue and rehabilitation of kittens and cats, as well as the foster and adoption of rehabilitated felines.
