As part of our ongoing mission at Booked Parties we are committed to giving back to organizations which are near and dear to our hearts.
To that end as part of our launch into Connecticut, we are partnering with the Newtown-Sandy Hook Community Foundation Inc. and will give back 10% of any proceeds for the month of July as part of our launch into the Connecticut market.
The Newtown-Sandy Hook Community Foundation is devoted to furthering and supporting operations and activities which address the short-term and long-term unmet needs of individuals and the Newtown community arising from the tragic events at Sandy Hook Elementary School on December 14, 2012. The Foundation oversees the Sandy Hook School Support Fund, which provides mental health and wellness resources to hundreds of traumatized and grief stricken children and adults, as well as grants to support the long-term quality and sustainability of services and organizations serving the community.
Take a look to see how you can give your support too:
- Book your Child’s next birthday party with Share Your Wish— a birthday party invitation website that helps guests donate to one or more charities of the birthday child’s choosing. For the month of July, The Newtown Sandy Hook Community Foundation will be the featured charity on the Share Your Wish website and will provide “Booked Parties” users with a simple and unique tool to raise additional funds for this wonderful organization. In addition, they will donate 10% of their proceeds from any events created in July that support Sandy Hook. (Please note that these events DO NOT have to take place in July, they just need to be created for any future date this year). For more information please visit their website or take a look at a recent post on the Booked Parties Blog.
