Providing toy-filled birthday gift bags for children living in poverty on their birthday.


  • Don't have much time but want to make a difference? We have a couple of choices:
  • Go to your local discount store and pick up an assortment of ten small toys (crayons, book, puzzle, yo-yo, stickers -- you get the idea) along with a birthday gift bag for kids ages 3-12.
  • Put the items in the bag and on your way home, drop the bag off at your local shelter or food shelf and ask them to give it to a parent who can't afford to give their child a gift on their birthday.
  • Then drop a quick email to karen@cheerfulgivers.org to say where you dropped off the bag.
  • That makes you a Cheerful Giver (see www.cheerfulgivers.org)
  • Think about doing this once/month.
  • Or, in less than one minute you can make an online donation at www.cheerfulgivers.org and for every $10, we will see that a less-fortunate child receives a toy-filled birthday gift bag on their birthday.
