It is so important to raise our young people to give back to the community. Why not make your birthday celebration about helping others that are less fortunate? Tweens are old enough to understand that we live in an imperfect world. Select a charity such as the ASPCA or local humane society. Your guest can bring gift that will be donated to your charity of choice.
