Hattie O’Brien and her husband, Brendan, wanted their kids' birthday parties to be a bit different.
"We wanted our kids to learn to serve others," Hattie said at her home Nov. 6. So for the last few birthdays, the couple have asked their children to pick a theme, and then the parents found a way to make giving a central part of the theme.
Last year, when Hattie's twin daughters, Evie and Lena, turned 11, they baked muffins and cookies and made cards to take to a local nursing home.
Now it’s their son James’ turn.
