Peter is a Leap Year Day Baby who started a website celebrating his birthday in April 1997. Six months later, he combined efforts with Raenell and the Honor Society was born.
Cari DeCoons, loves her Leap Day birthday, such a great conversation starter, and she always celebrates big. After years of searching for paper goods and party favors for our special birthday, Cari has designed a line we sell at leapyearbaby.com.

Our Postal Address
The Honor Society of Leap Year Day Babies is brought to you by the collective effort of almost 10,000 members from around the world. Membership in the society is free but is restricted to people born on Leap Year Day. We think we are the worlds largest birthday club, and we hope it offers all people born on Leap Year Day even more pleasure in celebrating their birthday.
The Honor Society members are also voices for Leap Consciousness. Modern day culture has lost the connection between humankind's keen interest in chronology, the seasons, and Leap Day. In response, many of our members have agreed to accept email queries sent from the site, and some even permit us to send their email address to journalists who contact us about our pursuit of Leap Consciousness. We all have a story to tell, and to share.
Our member contact service is also an easy way for members to communicate with others born on Leap Day. Birthday parties are planned, and many friendships are made here at the Honor Society.
By using our members page you can find people born in your area, in a specific Leap Year, or even at a particular time. Other services we provide are a birth family search service for people that are searching for somebody born on Leap Day, a media opportunities page where journalists may post requests for subjects, and of course, leapyearday.com which promotes Leap Day Awareness to the global internet.

Other Societies we've heard about
The mysterious Headlight-Sun Order of 29'ers. This is what we know.
The Society for the Preservation of Youth. Has anyone else heard of this? It entitled members, born on Leap Day, to officially celebrate their birthday between 9PM and 3AM on non-leap years. Maybe the society was local to the Philadelphia area. If you are familiar with this society please let us know.
