EAT.SLEEP.PARTY.REPEAT. That’s the mantra for Paige Chenault. And boy, does she know how to throw a bash. With an arsenal of party vendors and suppliers at her disposal—a coveted black book acquired from being a wedding planner for almost a decade—Paige is literally a professional party-thrower. But these days, her clientele has gone from brides to be to children in need. As founder of The Birthday Party Project (TBPP), Paige and her team of “birthday enthusiasts” celebrate the lives of children experiencing homelessness. And while TBPP officially kicked off just eight years ago, the organization has grown to 18 cities across the U.S. and has impacted more than 65,000 kids with the help of almost 40,000 birthday enthusiasts to date.* She’s been featured on the TODAY Show, New York Times, The Steve Harvey Show, ABC World News Tonight, Glamour Magazine, and more. Paige presented on the TEDx stage in 2016, and likes to share her ideas around pursuing your passion, creating a culture that’s meaningful, and entrepreneurship. Paige believes her work is more than a birthday celebration—it’s a loud exclamation point that children matter. The Birthday Party Project proves JOY changes lives and a JOYful community can change the world. Paige is passionate about all things giving. She and her husband, Colin, live in Dallas with their teenage daughter Lizzie.
