CeciStyle: Birthday Party Ideas

In celebration of Ms. Ceci's birthday, she asked top planners for their favorite FRESH birthday party ideas to be featured in CeciStyle.

I suggested that people organize an event doing a day of work for your favorite charity. Sad but true, but the "donation in lieu of a gift" request to your friends hardly materializes much. Whenever we check with the organization to see how much has been donated it's almost embarrassing to ask!

BORROW THIS IDEA for your next birthday party! Use your birthday powers for good and get your friends involved with your favorite cause!

If you're in New York, here's a site that can help you find some volunteer opportunities: 

Here's a sample of the kind of opportunities you can find: 

Paint and Sort at PS 208 M
Manhattan :: Central Harlem

 Revitalize a local school so they can start the year right. Volunteers will sketch murals designed by students on the stairwell doors with a projector, in addition to sorting and organizing closet spaces. Artistic and creative types are welcome to sign up.
