The "Bill of Rights Day 2018 - Birthday Cake Celebration" on December 14, 2018, is in keeping with the National Education Project's ongoing effort to restore the Bill of Rights to America by providing a free printed copy of the Bill of Rights to every child in the Nation.

It is simply not possible to know your rights as an American if you do not have a printed copy of the Bill of Rights actually in your hands.

Which is why the Founding Fathers wrote it down in the first place 227 years ago.

To get your free copy of the Bill of Rights, please CLICK HERE .

On Bill of Rights Day, December 15, 2017, the National Education Project provided free birthday cakes and free copies of the Bill of Rights to children in seven public, parochial, and charter elementary schools in Washington, D.C.

With the indispensable support of the Federal Bar Association, the Project also provided free cakes to elementary schools in Cleveland, Ohio, and Oklahoma City, Oklahoma.

In addition, we provided free birthday cakes to seven elementary schools in Miami Beach, Florida, where the cakes were delivered to the schools by the Miami Beach Police Department. Here are photographs of those wonderful 2017 celebrations of the Bill of Rights.

Miami Beach, Florida


The Bill of Right Day birthday cakes were delivered to nine 4th Grade classrooms in the North Beach Elementary School by six police officers of the Miami Beach Police Department, including a captain.

As one of the parents from North Beach Elementary School later wrote:

"Thank you for providing to our kids this amazing one week journey with the Bill of Rights and teach them civic education!

They loved it!

We wish a healthy and very long life for the Bill of Rights!

Thank you so much, Marina"

Oklahoma City, Oklahoma



"After introductions, 10 students each read an amendment of the Bill of Rights; the class sang Happy Birthday; and everyone enjoyed birthday cake. Oklahoma City Chapter's President U.S. Magistrate Judge Suzanne Mitchell and Board Member Cara Rodriguez led the presentation and the cake-cutting. Thanks to the National Education Project, Inc. and the FBA for making this possible."

Cleveland, Ohio


"Northern District of Ohio Chapter of the Federal Bar Association members Sean Kelly, Marisa Darden, and Sarah Cleves celebrated the 226th birthday of the Bill of Rights with the fourth-grade classes at Campus International School in Cleveland, Ohio.

The students received a copy of the Bill of Rights, and Sean and Marisa explained how the Bill of Rights applies to their work as a solo practitioner and an Assistant United States Attorney, respectively. We also had cake with the students

The students and teachers loved the (Bill of Rights Day) event, and it’s definitely something we’ll consider doing again next year."

The Bill of Rights Day 2018 - Birthday Cake Celebration will take place all across the country on Friday, December 14, 2018.

Here are the details of this wonderful, old-fashioned patriotic event:

  • The cake will be a sheet cake of sufficient size to provide a piece of cake to every child in the classroom, as well as the teacher, principal, and classroom aides.
  • Each cake will be decorated with the phrase: "Happy Birthday, Bill of Rights, 227 Years Old, December 15, 2018."
  • All the cakes will be produced by a commercial bakery (e.g., Costco, Safeway, Whole Foods, Giant, etc.).
  • This event is purely voluntary on the part of the schools, principals, and classroom teachers.
  • Chapters of the Federal Bar Association will invite local non-profit elementary schools to participate.  The schools may be public, charter, or parochial.
  • A school that has more than one 4th grade class will receive one sheet cake for each class.
  • There will be no cost whatsoever to the schools, the children or their families, or to the Federal Bar Association.
  • The National Education Project will pay all costs of the cakes and utensils, including the cost of delivery to the schools.
  • All parties must keep in mind that the "Bill of Rights Day 2018 - Birthday Cake Celebration" is strictly non-partisan and non-political.
  • To engage the larger community, FBA grant recipients are encouraged to ask the local police department to deliver the cakes to the schools on Friday, December 14, 2018, something that would certainly get the attention of the children.  (See photos from Bill of Rights Day in Miami Beach, Florida, above)
  • Participation by the local police department may also attract the interest of the press, providing a fine visual story, as well as a powerful symbolic moment, for the papers and the evening television news.
  • It is our hope that the classroom teachers will incorporate lessons about the Bill of Rights into classroom activities during the week beginning Monday, December 10, 2018, culminating with the Bill of Rights birthday cake on Friday, December 14.
  • We also hope that the teachers will encourage their students to read the Bill of Rights that same evening, December 14, during the Project's "Sixth Annual, Live National Read-Along of the Bill of Rights over the Internet" at 8:30 p.m.

Grants for 50 Chapters of the Federal Bar Association


Following the successes we had last December on Bill of Rights Day in Cleveland, Oklahoma City, and Miami Beach, (see photos below), The National Education Project, Inc. is offering to provide 50 grants of $300.00 each (one for each state) to chapters of the Federal Bar Association (FBA) willing to participate in the Project’s "Bill of Rights Day 2018 - Birthday Cake Celebration.”

Under the terms of each $300.00 grant, chapters of the FBA are being asked to select elementary schools in their own communities and:
  • Provide a free birthday cake on Friday, December 14, 2018, to the classes in these schools that are studying the Bill of Rights (i.e., depending on the state, these may be 4th, 5th, or 6th grade classes); and
  • Provide free copies of the attached Bill of Rights to every child in every grade in each elementary school that participates.
Please CLICK HERE to receive the Guidelines describing the "Bill of Rights Day 2018 - Birthday Cake Celebration" (e.g., grant application deadline, disbursement of funds to FBA chapters, etc.).

Bill of Rights Day 2018 - Birthday Cake Celebration
Washington, D.C.


The National Education Project, Inc. will commemorate Bill of Rights Day this year on December 14, 2018, by providing free birthday cakes to 4th grade classes in public, charter, and parochial elementary schools throughout the District of Columbia (4th grade is when children study the Bill of Rights in D.C.).

(Note that “Bill of Rights Day” this year officially falls on December 15, 2018. Because this date is a Saturday, however, the Project will celebrate Bill of Rights Day on the previous school day, Friday, December 14, 2018.)

In addition to free birthday cakes, free copies of the Bill of Rights will be distributed to every child in all participating elementary schools, which the children can then sign and take home to place on the family’s refrigerator door for the benefit of everyone in the family.

(We are delighted to say that on December 14 this year the birthday cakes in Washington, D.C. will be delivered to each school by the Metropolitan Police Department.)

The children will also be encouraged to read the Bill of Rights at home at 8:30 p.m. that night along with our schoolchildren here in Washington during the National Education Project’s “Sixth Annual, Live National Read-Along of the Bill of Rights over the Internet."

Last year, seven Washington elementary schools participated in this wonderful event and the children were simply overjoyed with the birthday cakes and the opportunity to sign their own free copy of the Bill of Rights, which is our gentle reminder to the children that the Bill of Rights belongs to them .

And the 4th Graders who read the Bill of Rights later that evening to the entire Nation over the Internet were just wonderful!

To see the video of the reading of the children reading the Bill of Rights on December 15, 2017, please click on the birthday cake, above.
