We love to hear about new birthday party themes. And Abby’s certainly takes the cake. Butterflies were the main event at this party. They played butterfly games – wrapping girls up in paper cocoons having them race to emerge as butterflies, they ate butterfly cookies and even had a butterfly scavenger hunt. Creativity at its finest.
8 year old Abby said, “I chose to support Because I Am A Girl because I think girls should have the same rights as boys all over the world, and not just in certain places.” Abby, we couldn’t agree any more. And we are thrilled that you chose to share your thoughts about this with friends and family on your special day.
Abby loves to read. Anything and everything! With her funds raised at her birthday party, Abby is going to buy a whole new bounty of books. We can’t think of a better gift for this beautiful butterfly.
Did you know October 11th is International Day of the Child Girl? It only takes ONE girl to change the word. Thank you Abby for making a difference at such a young age.
