Review for Cheerful Givers, Eagan, MN, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

I've been volunteering with Cheerful Givers for a few years now, and it's been one of the funnest and most rewarding experiences I've had. Their mission is unique, and it's something that drew me to them in the first place. I always loved my birthday, so why not try and help other people love theirs as well? Creating birthday bags for underprivileged children has been an experience that has been both fun and unifying. It's helped (and continues to) bring people together for a fun time, all while doing something great for the community. A lot of organizations' focus revolves around Christmas and making sure children have present on that one day of the year. And while that's terrific, children also have birthdays everyday, and it's something that is overlooked by many charity organizations. But for children, it's that one day of the year that's all about them; it's their day. And Cheerful Givers strives to make their day a special one, to bring a smile to every child on his or her birthday.

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

being able to see some of the letters from parents who received birthday gifts to give to their child.
