Like most children their age, Indy and Willa DeBirk look forward to a big birthday party with their friends every year.
But instead of collecting piles of presents for themselves on their special day, Indy and Willa ask their party guests to bring items that may seem out of place at a birthday celebration – diapers and wet wipes.
Through the example of their parents, the DeBirk sisters choose every year a charitable organization that could use assistance in lieu of personal gifts. This year the two chose to assist the Utah Refugee Center and the Granite Education Foundation by donating items that are often difficult for refugee families to purchase.
In gratitude for their contributions, members of the Granite Education Foundation honored the DeBirk’s with the Friend to Friend Award.
