The mission of Every Birthday Matters is to provide birthday party kits to underprivileged children in Florida's Suncoast Region that might not otherwise experience the joy that comes with celebrating their special day. We will fulfill this mission by providing these birthday kits at no cost to the facility, child, or family through donations from the local community and implementation by volunteers.
Every Birthday Matters was founded in May 2012 by Amber Elrom in an effort to provide needy children with the joy of celebrating their birthdays with a special party.
A birthday is a very important event in a child's life, one that builds self-esteem and fosters a sense of normalcy. Most children living in group homes and shelters do not have the funding and/or family resources for a birthday celebration. Every Birthday Matters will provide the tools for this birthday celebration at no cost to the child or facility.
Amber Elrom is a Telecommunications Project Manager for Windstream. She is married to Michael Elrom who volunteers with Every Birthday Matters as the Treasure and Web Programmer. Mike and Amber have three children. Their son, Noah, was the inspiration for the charity when he said "Everybody needs a Birthday" after being told his 4th birthday party was coming up.
