As parents, we understand the bond created between parents and their children. We also know it is an amazing feeling to see our children smile on their special day.

When the bond is broken due to a tragic loss, such as death,  it was necessary to establish an organization that can make a difference in a child's life. 

Thus, Birthday Presence was formed. 



Tyreka and Michael Harrell Jr.

Together, with longstanding community relationships and a Bachelor of Social Work (BSW) , it was deemed necessary to give back to our community. This meaningful opportunity has afforded us to cater to deserving children in their unique situations. After suffering a great loss within our own family, we are very committed to this nonprofit organization and the principles of love, hope, joy, care and compassion.

We have discovered that Birthday Presence is just as rewarding to us as it is for our gift recipients. We have been residents of North Carolina for over 30 years. We have a sense of pride of our community and wanted to make our contributions to it.

We will also use BP, as an example of dedication and motivation for our children, Malik, Michaira, and Madric. We will set the example for them that GIVING BACK to your community is both honorable and satisfying.

This non-profit organization was inspired

by the sweetest soul I've ever met.


May God continue watch over, protect and

bless her children.
