When you're a kid, birthdays are a pretty huge deal.
Maybe nowadays you forgo the fanfare in favor of a more subdued celebration with a handful of friends and some really good food. But we all have a party from our youth that we think back on and remember fondly as being the best birthday ever.
For me, that was my sixth birthday when my dad spent a week painstakingly filling out backyard with sand, toys, and an inflatable pool so I could have my very own "beach bash", despite being miles away from the nearest beach.
But unfortunately, not all children have people in their lives to celebrate their biggest milestones with. And one California teen has taken it upon herself to change that.
