birthday parties

There are several ways you can become a Cheerful Giver. Learn more about the different ways below. 

Hold A Birthday Bag Blast

A Birthday Bag Blast is a great activity at family gatherings and also supports your community. It makes a great birthday party activity for children or adults while making happiness happen for families in need. It can also be done in conjunction with your Thanksgiving celebration or any other holiday.

Many organizations hold a Birthday Bag Blast to provide a hands-on volunteer opportunity that impacts their community. Examples of those who successfully use this activity include Corporate teams, school groups, confirmation classes, boy and girl scout groups, neighborhood and women’s groups. 

Join The Birthday Club

For as little as $10 a month you can provide 12 less fortunate children with a birthday gift through the year. To join the Birthday Club, visit our Donate page
