Review for Cheerful Givers, Eagan, MN, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

I’ve recently become involved with an organization that makes me smile! Cheerful Givers! They provide toy-filled birthday gift bags to shelters and food shelves so that parents living in poverty can give their child a birthday gift. The idea is that this simple gesture boosts self-esteem, enhances self-worth, and strengthens bonds in families. Volunteering is something we do in addition to our busy work and family lives…its something that should be fun and make you feel good! The activities we do and the people I have met through Cheerful Givers does just that…I leave meeting and events smiling! Karen Kitchel has been a joy to work with. I co-chaired this year's Great Minnesota Birthday Party with Ali, what a fun and amazing event! We had a great turnout. We coordinated the entertainment and activities including a cheer-off, coloring contest, musicians, celebrities – AND, we raised money and received donations to give birthday gifts to children! I have volunteered in many organizations over the years. My volunteer work at Cheerful Givers is the most welcome I’ve felt with a new group and the most fun I’ve had giving back to the community! I’m looking forward to our next event, next meeting, and an opportunity to meet more of the volunteers!

What I've enjoyed the most about my experience with this nonprofit is...

great people and fun events for a great cause!

The kinds of staff and volunteers that I met were...

wonderful, fun, and creative people!

If this organization had 10 million bucks, it could...

provide more than a million birthday gifts to children...making them feel special on their special day and raising their self esteem!
