We are thrilled to share that The Birthday Party Project (TBPP) has announced a nationwide partnership with Oriental Trading Company, the nation’s largest direct retailer of value-priced party supplies, arts and crafts, school supplies, toys and novelties. Through the partnership, Oriental Trading Company will provide all party supplies for the monthly birthday parties hosted by The Birthday Party Project in homeless shelters across the country, starting in September.
The company will donate decorations, toys, games and supplies for all events in the 12 cities where TBPP celebrates including Atlanta, Chicago, Washington D.C., Detroit, Houston, Kansas City, Los Angeles, Minneapolis, New York City, Dallas, Fort Worth and San Francisco. Oriental Trading Company will work with the non-profit to incorporate festive party themes. Young birthday revelers will be treated to themed celebrations – such as winter wonderland, sports and super heroes, to name a few.
“It’s a dream come true to partner with Oriental Trading Company. We feel this is the perfect partnership for our mission,” says Founder of TBPP Paige Chenault. “Oriental Trading Company offers the best accessories/supplies for our themed parties-from Monster Masks to Cowboy hats-they have everything to make a child feel special and celebrated on their birthday! This partnership will allow us to throw magical parties like never before-and to host more of them around the country!”
In addition, Oriental Trading Company will feature the TBPP in their birthday catalogue that is distributed. Employees will also be able to join in the fun by filling gift bags for future TBPP parties.
“Our vision is to make the world more fun, so we’re excited to partner with The Birthday Party Project,” said Steve Mendlik, Acting CEO of Oriental Trading Company. “We believe every child deserves to celebrate their birthday, no matter what their situation. With this partnership, we hope to bring smiles to the faces of thousands of children across the country.”
