At the age of 13, Chase Kauder and Talia Eskenazi founded a successful party planning business, ‘Partycipate’ hosting birthday parties around New York City. They decided their time and efforts would be put to much better use by bringing the joy of smiles, love, laughter and fun to children who really needed it. Celebrate U was born.
The Celebrate U Foundation believes all children should know what it feels like to be honored and have their family and friends tell them how much they love them. It is very important to a child’s self-esteem to be recognized and understand how special they are. Most of all, the Celebrate U Foundation will stress the importance of hope through education using art, music, and stories during the parties.
