Birthday Fundraiser Inc. was founded by Rhiannon “Nikki” McFarling in 2021 after realizing the importance of raising children to know how much of a difference they can make in the world around them. Every year on our birthday, it is another chance to look back at what we have accomplished and how we were able to leave a positive impact on the world around us. It is important for us to teach my our children from the very beginning to help others and leave a positive impact in the world.
Our non-profit was started in 2021 and in September of that year we gained 501(c)3 status. The first event we produced took place the first Saturday in November of 2021. Due to the success of that event, our mission statement became official, “To inspire today’s youth to make a positive difference in the world around them.” We accomplish this goal by offering motivational speaking to youth organizations with the topic of “Who you are matters, and what you do matters.” We give out inspirational wristbands with that quote along with what we call emergency positivity cards. The cards are scratch-offs with an inspirational saying for when you just need some positivity. We also produce three free community events each year. Each event has a different purpose but all are filled with love & positive energy. We prefer in-kind donations as we like to encourage individuals to use their skills, talents and abilities to help others.
