We would like to send one giant birthday cheer thank you to Secret Agent L for the awesome guest post she allowed Megs to write on her blog.
The Secret Agent L (SAL) Project started in July of 2009 as a way to pay tribute to a friend. It all started with a single hydrangea flower on the windshield of a car in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania.
Secret Agent L, whose real identity is that of Laura Miller, goes all over Pittsburgh and leaves little acts of kindness and day-brightening for an unsuspecting person to find. The SAL Project has blossomed into an international phenomenon of anonymous acts of kindness, with over 2,000 Affiliated Agents sharing in the fun and selflessness all over the world. Some of the countries that have participated in the project include Japan, Germany, Canada, Denmark, the Netherlands, and Australia.
Laura, you and your fans rock and we without a doubt believe in your mission “Be Kind. No Exceptions.”

For months we’ve been filling your Facebook newsfeeds, e-mail inboxes, and Twitter timelines with cheer about Beverly’s Birthdays. We’ve shared snippets of our experiences on this blog, and even displayed pictures of smiling birthday faces on our website. But now, today, you all can finally take a sneak peek into the joy and excitement of a real Beverly’s Birthdays party! Check out this awesome video from Eddie Jenkins (Thank you, thank you, thank you!) and listen as the founder Megs Yunn explains the creation and future goals of Beverly’s.
On Friday Beverly’s Birthdays presented at a Homeless Children’s Education Fund Network Meeting. We had the opportunity to share our story with agency providers who are helping homeless youth in our region. Beverly’s Birthdays is reaching a point where we are ready to extend our services and help more children….which is SO exciting!!
We loved meeting the agency providers and learning about the great work they are doing for their families. If you don’t know about HCEF, check them out http://www.homelessfund.org/.
