Target demographics: We serve economically disadvantaged children between the ages of 3-12.

Direct beneficiaries per year: 52,227 children received birthday bags in 2010

Someone who had 3 hours of volunteer time could: Purchase a variety of small new toys and gift bags, assemble them into the birthday bags and donate them to a shelter or food shelf in their own community. Then contact karen@cheerfulgivers.org to let us know how many bags were filled and where they were donated.

Programs: Our program addresses an unmet need which allows economically disadvantaged parents a way to recognize their child's birthday with a gift. Toy-filled birthday gift bags are assembled by thousands of volunteers (including teens with disabilities and the elderly) and are distributed to shelters and food shelves.

Mission:
We believe birthday celebrations instill self-esteem and strengthen family bonds. We empower economically disadvantaged families by offering toy-filled gift bags as a means of celebrating their child''s birthday.
Results:
Since we began in 1994, we have provided toy-filled birthday gift bags to more than 680,000 less fortunate children, but the need to do more is great!
