Megan (Megs) Yunn is the president and founder of Beverly’s Birthdays. Megan founded Beverly’s Birthdays in 2012 with the help of a grant she received through Scholastic’s BE BIG in Your Community Contest. Megan likes to live her life guided by the phrase, “A life without cause is a life without effect.” So every day she fights for her cause in order to better and affect the lives of those around her. Beverly’s Birthdays is a simple concept: to throw birthday parties for struggling children, but unfortunately, before Megan, it was overlooked in the Pittsburgh region. She receives no income from the organization, but she continues to be passionate about it and driven for it to succeed to serve more shelters and more children. Megan will not give up until she’s given every child a happy birthday memory that they will remember for years to come.
About Beverly’s Birthdays
Beverly’s Birthdays believes in spreading birthday cheer 365 days a year, and that every child, regardless of personal or financial circumstances, deserves a birthday celebration. Megan Yunn and Beverly’s Birthdays currently serve ten homeless shelters in the Pittsburgh region by throwing birthday parties for the children living in the shelters. In the future, Beverly’s Birthdays hopes to provide a birthday celebration for every child living in transitional or emergency shelters in the Pittsburgh region.
