CHEERFUL GIVERS
May 9, 2014

I have been with Cheerful Givers for over 10 years. my experience starts like this. I work at Ecolab & we had one bag making event. I had not heard of anymore so I contacted our community giving folks. They asked if I would like to lead the group to do more events. I said yes. Doing that for six months or so I was asked by Cheerful Givers to participate in an advisory group for corp groups. we discussed how each of us did things, shared ideas on new ways etc. I was with that group for I am not sure how long then was invited to be a board member. I agreed to join the board & was voted in. Was a fun experience I learned alot about being on a board & was able to add my point of view. I was a single mom & had used oportunities like Cheerful Givers for my daughter. I did have to leave the board due to a family event that came up, but I still am involved, some at work & pick up toys monthly to go to the sponsored group CG's has. I also do many volunteer events like the Volunteer Expo each year at the MOA & the yearly MN Birthday party again at the MOA. I like CG's as it is a flexible organization you can volunteer as much or little you are able to. Cheerful Givers may not save lives, but can change the world "One child at a time!" Take the time & check it out you can not go wrong! There are many kids who do not know they have a birthday, due to their parents not being able to help celebrate that day. Each of us should be acknowledged on our Birthday! It makes us unique & special! Again check out Cheerful Givers!!

If you are looking for a very flexible non profit to volunteer for, Cheerful Givers is the one! I have been involved with the organization for roughly 8-9 years. I have been involved with various aspects of the organization from Board memeber for roughly 3 years, I make bags at my work place, I go to the volunteer Expo at the MOA to promote Cheerful Givers annually. To mention a few things. Take the time to think of not so fun or bad Birthday or having no party as a kid. Imagine now not beeing even acknowledged on your birthday! that is why I am part of Cheerful Givers. I know the bags we make go to parents to give their child (plus) Child is acknowledged on his/her Birthday (plus). I know & feel good about making the bag & contributing (plus). there is no way to go wroing!!

We started our group at my work place over 7 years ago. We have continued to make Birthday Bags quarterly, now. All of my co-workers who participate love to do it! they feel is a good way to volunteer & help kids & families too! It does not take much time & we have a great time. As one of the folks that makes bags said "we can change the world one child at a time!" I fully agree. Thank you for reading these I hope you will donate or volunteer for Cheerful Givers.
