Grenda'a Birthday Fundraiser for the World's Children Birthday Fund

Celebrating Every Child’s Birthday Because Every Child Matters.

Grenda’s Birthday Fundraiser

Help Grenda celebrate her 60th birthday by giving to the World's Children Birthday Fund.

The World’s Children Birthday Fund

The children’s homes we support love to celebrate birthdays. Once a month they have a birthday party to honor all the kids who have birthdays that month.


“I want for nothing in my life and feel blessed beyond measure. As a kid, I didn’t get to celebrate my birthday, so my 60th birthday party is very meaningful to me. Instead of gifts, I am asking you to donate to the World’s Children Birthday Fund.

World’s Children supports children who come from environments where they weren’t celebrated so a gift for the children instead of a gift to me, would bring me great happiness.” – Grenda



Birthday Party

Loretta met David Purviance on a chance trip in 2006, while seeking to be of service to the vulnerable children in India.  Since then, Loretta has been a longtime supporter of World’s Children as a donor, sponsor, and previous Board member.  She had the wonderful opportunity to return to India twice to visit several World’s Children orphanages, and even identified the Happy Home orphanage and petitioned to bring it into the WC family. Loretta raised funds to build a well at Happy Home, where it now has clean water for all the children and staff.

Loretta currently works with the Los Angeles County Department of Health Services as the Program Manager for the six Medical Hubs – the child abuse evaluation clinics for the County. She also serves as the Program Manager for the County’s Gender Health Program, serving patients seeking gender-affirming care in a safe environment.  Before her work with Los Angeles County, Loretta spent many years serving non-profit organizations in CA and in MN, her last as the Executive Director of a statewide non-profit in MN. She has a long history of volunteer work including Board Member and Board Chair service, grant writing and fundraising experience, program development, and creative leadership, all serving our most vulnerable and disenfranchised populations.

Loretta holds a Bachelor of Science in Human Services, a Master’s degree in Spiritual Psychology, and a Master’s degree in Organizational Leadership.  She lives in Los Angeles County with her partner, Myck, and their rescue kitties, Scooter and Thunder.
