What Are Parties With A Cause?

Have you seen Parties With a Cause popping up in your social media lately? I’ve been talking about it for years as something to go after in my business….when I got a large enough following. Or when I had my website running perfectly. Or when my Etsy shop was making a certain amount of money. Or….the list of excuses goes on and on.

Have you ever had a dream? One that was WAY bigger than yourself and you didn’t even know where to start? That’s me. Right now. So I am thrilled to be taking the first baby steps and rolling out my dream with you today. Halfpint Party Design is now Parties With A Cause! And I couldn’t be more excited!

Why Change Now?

We liked Halfpint Design, so why change now?

During my party research over the years I’ve been frustrated with the characters, garish color palettes, and ALL THE SUGAR! I founded Halfpint Party Design to share my modernized low-sugar, non-character parties with like minded moms.

But as my children grew their increasing sense of entitlement and avalanche of STUFF became a concern. If you are a mother, aunt, grandmother, or have interaction with a child, you’ve probably noticed many kids getting a lot harder to deal with. After talking with hundreds of moms I KNOW I’m not alone in this. I’ve struggled with the sense of entitlement my kids are developing worrying I’m not doing enough to fight it. Our new motto is:

Too much sugar, too many toys, it’s time to cut through all the noise!

We started adding “no gifts please” to birthday party invites to no avail. In an effort to un-spoil my children and do some good in the world, we’ve cultivated a family habit of service. Enter Parties With A Cause.

I’ve taken the best day of my child’s life, their birthday, and created a more meaningful experience. If you knew your child could: Feel special, have fun…..and do good. All while battling overindulgence, wouldn’t you want to try?

There are several ways to have your party “do good”. See if any of these causes resonate with you:

  1. Collect money or goods for non profit organizations {could be in lieu of gifts!}
  2. Party more sustainably by using compostable plates, reusable balloons, and edible straws
  3. Purchase ethical party decor, clothing,  and accessories, from cottage industries in developing nations
  4. Lower the sugar offerings as a model that healthier food can still be fun
  5. Add an element of learning to your theme and leave guests inspired

We can still have a fabulous party. We can still eat delicious food. AND we can do it all while making a difference in the world. Whether it be through donations to a particular cause, or by adding an educational or sustainable component, each party engages and enlightens guests. Leaving us all empowered.

This is the kind of party I want to attend. The type of child I want to raise. And world I want to live in.

If you feel like you’re ready to start cutting through the noise with me join the movement below! I’ll break it all down to show you how we do it. So you can do it too!

Don’t worry. I’ll be here to help you every step of the way!

Until next time my friend,
