Become a Cheerful Giver
Organized by: JoWana Virdi
Many less fortunate children don’t believe they have a birthday because it has never been celebrated. A child’s birthday is a special day in his or her life, and it is critical to the development of self-esteem for a child’s birthday to be recognized.
With the help of thousands of volunteers, birthday gift bags are assembled and distributed to shelters and food pantries for parents to give to their child on their birthday. These birthday gifts send a message that every child is important. Since Cheerful Givers began in 1994, more than 800,000 less fortunate children have received gifts on their birthday. However, because today in the USA one in every five children are now living in poverty, there is a great need for us to do more.
What You Can Do:
Funding is needed to purchase the toys, books and items that go into the birthday gift bag
Each bag cost about $10 to put together.
Remember to involve your kids in giving back!!!
We will deliver bags monthy.. So feel free to give as often as you can
