We are a group of passionate volunteers who care about doing right by others, especially kids who are fighting a battle. We partner with local organizations like the MeFine Foundation and the Ronald McDonald House to identify families in our area that we can serve at our parties. Speaking of parties, ours are themed to the children we've invited. Our first - a Princess Party - had all the trimmings including arrival in a horse-drawn carriage, a personal princess host (from our partner, the Miss North Carolina Scholarship Pageant Organization) and a tiara & sash decoration station. Every party has a fun photo booth, an awesome dance party and cake -- OF COURSE THERE'S CAKE!
From princesses to superheroes, our parties allow kids to be kids no matter the health challenge they are living through. Our goal is to replace missed memories from missed parties due to their illness with an awesome memory from our party. Encouraged to invite 5-10 friends, each child gets to have their own party inside of a bigger party. Born in the Triangle area of North Carolina, The Red Balloon Project has no limits in terms of the children it serves.
In an effort to serve more children and allow our passionate volunteers more opportunities to love on these kids, we also offer our 'Dream Team' -- a team of volunteers who will serve the children at parties or events they may be having at the home, church or clubhouse, perhaps.
