During social distancing and isolation many children will be having Birthdays and as parents, we want nothing more than for their day to be special. We all have one thing in common right now, we’re in this together!
Neighbours friends, family and co-workers are all doing what they can to help each other out. Parents, if you reach out and ask for assistance to help make a Birthday wish, the response will be a positive one.
On Thursday, March 26th South Simcoe Police & Innisfil Fire received a call from from a Mom who wanted her 7 year-old to have a special day and this is what happened.
We teamed up with @Innisfil_FIRE to send a greeting to children celebrating birthdays in #COVID19 #lockdown. Our gesture was inspired by an #Innisfil mom whose son turns 7 today. #HappyBirthday everyone! Lights – sirens – action! Enjoy! #InThisTogether #SocialDistancing pic.twitter.com/AORLN1OFw9

Here are a few ways to involved others in a celebration…
Mom & Dad reach out to neighbours, friends and nearby family. Set a time of the day to meet, then drive by the Birthday house, honking, holding signs and waving away!
My beautiful nephew who was born very prematurely a year ago, is celebrating his 1 year birthday today – and they had a “birthday parade.” I’m sobbing. pic.twitter.com/0HAbtdl1Gc

It was truly our pleasure to help Channing celebrate his 5th 🎂 birthday 🎁 @SheriffMina and Deputy Brooker took part in a drive-by birthday parade after Channing’s mom had to cancel his birthday party due to #COVID19

Supply some chalk, placed in a container with a sign notifying neighbours and friends walking by write messages on the driveway. It’s like a giant Birthday card!
Post up signs around the yard, garage doors and in windows asking anybody driving by to, “Honk and wave it’s my Birthday!”
