MARY'S BIRTHDAY FUNDRAISER
In October 2016, in lieu of getting together for birthday drinks, I asked my friends and family to contribute their would-be bar tab so that I could throw a birthday party for kids in emergency housing at LA Family Housing. It was nothing short of life-changing! Since that party, I founded a 501c3 non-profit (resisterhoodLA!) and have organized 25+ volunteer events for Los Angeles causes.
I'm doing it again! I'm donating my 31st birthday to throw a community celebration, and I need your support to make it happen. So, breathe a sigh of relief: You don't have to pay for parking, show up to a crowded bar, buy an over-priced drink and strain to hear each other talk... What is that worth to you? $20? $200?
Whatever you're able to donate, I will be grateful and you know I'll make it count. It will go towards feeding 120 people, renting a bounce house, creating a DIY photobooth, and arts & crafts! Just so you know: resisterhoodLA is 100% volunteer-run. No one takes a salary and we have little to no overhead costs.

ABOUT THE PARTY:
In January, resisterhoodLA is supporting LA Family Housing. LAFH helps people transition out of homelessness and poverty through a continuum of housing enriched with supportive services.
On January 26, 2019, we are hosting a party for the 120 residents of LAFH’s Communidad Cesar Chavez, an emergency shelter in East LA/Boyle Heights. Family parties at Comunidad Cesar Chavez are intended to bring the families together and create a sense of community. As the families are in an often challenging season of their lives, these birthday parties are a wonderful thing to look forward to.
