On social media today, Danneel and Jensen Ackles announced that they will be “sharing” their birthdays this year with the organization The Birthday Party Project. Their mission is to make sure that children all over the country have a chance to celebrate their birthday, and they host 48 birthday parties a year in 15 different cities, including Austin. From their website:
With the help of our birthday enthusiasts™ (volunteers), we host monthly birthday bashes at homeless and transitional living facilities across the country. Our themed parties are complete with activities and games, decorations, cakes, and FUN for all the children and families living at the agency.
The philanthropic duo are both celebrating birthdays this month (Jensen’s was on March 1st, Danneel’s will be on March 18th) and they have committed to raising money for this amazing cause. You can donate to their fundraiser here!

I’m turning 40 March 18th, and @jensenackles just turned 41 last week!The best way to celebrate this milestone is to share the birthday love with others, which is why Jensen and I are “sharing our birthdays” with The Birthday Party Project! We will be visiting a local shelter on my birthday to party with some well deserving kids. The Birthday Party Project celebrates children living in homeless and transitional living facilities across the country. Each month The Birthday Party Project hosts monthly birthday parties at the shelters to celebrate these kids who may not otherwise have a birthday party. They believe that every child deserves to be celebrated. TBPP Believes that no one should be defined by their circumstances, but instead be celebrated for who they are! Each month, TBPP hosts 48 parties a month in 15 cities across the country, including our hometown of Austin! Not every child has a home, but every child has a birthday. Please consider donating to this worthy cause to ensure every child gets to blow out a candle on their special day. Go follow @thebirthdaypartyproject to see what joy they are sparking today! #thebirthdaypartyproject #shareyourbirthday To help us reach our goal, please visit the link in my bio ❤️
