Cherab Foundation Presents: Chris Ramerez’s CrowdFunnit Birthday Celebration
September 30, 2018 @ 1:00 pm - 3:00 pm
“Bullying has left a mark on Chris’s soul,” says his mom, Mary Ramerez. “There were almost half a dozen confirmed cases of bullying towards Chris at school last year alone, and as a result, he suffers anxieties that others hate him.”
Let’s let Chris know he does have friends! You are cordially invited to celebrate Chris’s 14th birthday party with him. As an honored guest, you are invited to have a super time at SuperPlayUSA for Chris’s birthday party.
FREE TICKETS ARE REQUIRED FOR ENTRANCE There is no admission cost to attend the party, however, tickets are required for entrance. Admission is free to enjoy the entertainment, numerous special guests, and Superheroes, but please RSVP for your free tickets here anyway to help us plan accordingly by providing a count to Superplay, Duffys, and the baker Seriangely’s Sweet Inspirations so there is enough room, food, and delicious birthday cake. Thank you in advance! Celebrate Chris’s birthday and stay as long as you want to play!
Up until 2nd grade, Chris was outgoing, reveled in making others laugh. Then things began to change. By 4th grade he was teased constantly by his classmates for being different. Teasing turned into bullying and physical altercations with peers, classmates invading in privacy even in the bathroom, that Chris completely shut down. “He’s built walls around him to keep other kids from hurting him. It’s those walls I want broken down,” said Mary.
For the past seven years, Chris has celebrated his birthday only with family. “We spent hundreds of dollars on his parties,” said Mary. “Chris waited and waited, and nobody came.”
Last summer he and his father attended the crowdFunnit celebration for William Morales in Port St. Lucie, FL and his hopes did a 180. Now Chris will be the guest of honor at his own crowdFunnit party and welcomes the whole community to join him September 30 to celebrate all those individuals and families out there feeling the same alienation.
Chris and crowdFunnit are calling all kind-hearted people interested in making friends. “I want there to be a common ground where he and others like him can feel safe to be themselves, do activities and enjoy life,” Mary said.
That’s exactly the foundation of the crowdFunnit community party says founder Lisa Geng. “We are dedicated to improving the lives of those who are bullied and alienated, fostering acceptance, compassion and friendship through open-invite birthday parties, community awareness and common kindness.”
crowdFunnit and the Ramirez family welcome families in the same situation to share their stories on our official party page and join as a guest of honor at the party. Equally important is the presence of compassionate individuals and families of all ages to come out and join the fun, share some cake and make a few new friends.
“I just want Chris and children like him to enjoy life and all the wonderful things it offers. Please help me and other moms like me find a happy place for our sons and daughters to live in. We need them to know that they are not alone,” said Mary
There is no admission cost to attend the party, however, we are looking to raise $500 towards basic party supplies and gifts for Chris. Any money over our goal can help others in need of support through the 501(c)3 Cherab Foundation which is the organization behind CrowdFunnit. Cherab Foundation provides evidence-based and integrative approaches to help children with therapy, nutrition, socialization/anti-bullying, and awareness. Every dollar helps. Thank you in advance!
