Too many kids never know the simple joy of screaming around their birthday party, covered in cake and unwrapping presents from people who care, and that's especially true for foster kids. Registered nonprofit Pop-Up Birthday is doing its best to make sure that children who are already dealing with enough enjoy a day dedicated to making them feel special. Founder Laila Scott and her team of helpers have already put their birthday boxes – a complete party in kit form – in the hands of over 2,000 foster kids in Austin and seven surrounding counties. Now that's something to celebrate.
