mission

history

We currently fulfill birthday requests from our partner agencies (includig Child Protective Services, CASA, Upbring, Pathfinders and Pathways Youth and Family Services)  for foster children in and around the Austin, Texas area. Once we receive a request, we get to work preparing a custom party in a box for the foster child and caregivers. The Pop-Up Birthday box is a plastic tote filled to the brim with complete party supplies, including theme decorations, paper goods, games/craft, cake, candles, balloons, goody bags, a personalized card and gifts for the foster child.

Celebrating the lives of children in foster care, one box at a time.

To provide personalized birthday celebrations 

to children in foster care, creating a moment of connection between the child and a loving adult. 

We believe that something as simple as a birthday party has the power to provide normalcy, joy and hope in a foster child’s life. 

what we do

Pop-Up Birthday was founded by Laila Scott, a mom of three boys and active community volunteer with a passion for spreading birthday joy.  With the support of Foster Angels of Central Texas, the Pop-Up Birthday program launched in July 2014. In September 2015, we received our own non-profit 501c3 non-profit status.  By early 2017, we will have have provided personalized birthday celebrations to 1000 children affected by the foster care system.
