LTYM Pittsburgh 2017 Charity: Beverly’s Birthdays!

by stephaniejankowski on April 24, 2017

We’ve all dreamed of, anticipated, planned for our child’s first birthday. Themes, colors, cakes–it’s all part of the business of throwing a big bash. Family and friends join us in celebrating our little nugget, and the shindig is photographed more extensively than a Kardashian sighted stepping out in the latest spring fashion–which is to say, entirely too much.

Except Beverly. Beverly never had a first birthday party. Or any party. Her family had bigger fish to fry, like finding a permanent, safe home.

When Megs Yunn learned Beverly had never celebrated her birthday, she created Beverly’s Birthdays, a local non-profit providing birthday cheer for children experiencing homelessness and families in need in the greater Pittsburgh area. Since 2012, through their five programs, Beverly’s Birthdays has brought birthday fun to over 10,000 children and families!! They believe in spreading birthday cheer 365 days a year and that every child, regardless of personal or financial circumstances, deserves a special birthday.

And cue happy tears.

We chose Beverly’s Birthdays as our 2017 charity because HELLOOOOO did you read all that?! What a selfless, kind, simple way to spread a little cheer to those who need it most. We all deserve to feel special on our birthday, and Beverly’s Birthdays makes sure it happens.


Beverly’s Birthdays is hosting two upcoming events in an effort to raise money for their charity. Please consider attending:


  • Highmark Walk: Saturday, May 13th, 2017
  • Beverly’s Birthdays/SMC Business Councils Golf Outing: Monday, June 12th, 2017, Birdsfoot Golf Club, Freeport, PA

If you’re coming to the show (and we sure hope you are!), you can donate a new, unwrapped toy that is guaranteed to make a kid’s birthday even more special. Thank you in advance for your kindness!
