What are HBJ parties?
Happy Birthday Jesus parties are for families in need around metro Atlanta. It is an exciting time of the year where we prepare to celebrate our Happy Birthday Jesus season with a party. The Founder, Elizabeth Weatherby, felt called to bring the message and true meaning of Christmas, which is Jesus Christ, to the children and their families. And her way of doing it is through these HBJ parties. During these parties, each child receives a HBJ Shirt, a gift bag, participates in fun activities like face painting and festive craft stations, gets to enjoy birthday cake and drink and then is invited to sing and dance and watch puppets and much more.

Over the years, locally and internationally, our HBJ Parties have served over 100,000 children and families. To continue this blessing and to tell His message to that many people we need volunteers. We need volunteers to help set up and decorate at each party, to pass out HBJ Shirts and gift bags, at the balloon station and help at other activities during the party. Sign up here or contact our office at (770) 795-9349 or by email to see how you can be a part of giving to your community through volunteering.
