Host a Birthday Bag Blitz: Cheerful Givers

January 28, 2013

in Ages 12 and under, Ages 12+, Ages 16+, Ages 18+, Children and Teens

Cheerful Givers helps families by helping to provide toy-filled birthday gift bags to food shelves and shelters so that parents living in poverty can give their child a birthday gift. This simple gesture boosts self-esteem, enhances self-worth, and strengthens bonds in families. Your family or group will assemble birthday bags with new toys for children ages 3-12 and deliver the bags to a nearby shelter or food shelf. About 8-10 new items go into each bag, with a total value of about ten dollars. Each bag should include one “lasting” item like a plush animal or book. Click for directions for assembling birthday bags. This is a unique, fun activity for all ages! Please contact Cheerful Givers to tell them how many birthday bags you filled and where you donated them.

Location: Fill the bags at your home or other location, and then deliver them to a local shelter or food shelf
Ages: All ages
Time(s): Varies
