Volunteering helps you network, gives you the satisfaction of incorporating service into your life, and gives you new opportunities to build new skills.

Birthdays Remembered


The mission of Birthdays Remembered is to provide birthday gift packages for any child in Arizona whose need is identified by a partner agency. Birthdays Remembered will ensure the quality, consistency, and integrity of gifts delivered by attempting to match gifts with the child’s request whenever possible.

Gift Donations


Birthday packages consist of a gift of the child’s request (up to $25.00 in value), an age appropriate book, small craft items when available, a blank birthday card for the parent to sign, and wrapping paper to wrap the gift. These come inside a fabric bag or backpack for the child to decorate and make their own. Packages will be presented to the parent or caregiver to give to their child. No child should know that their package came from Birthdays Remembered.

We exist because every child has a birthday, but not every family is able to celebrate with a gift.

Birthdays Remembered partners with agencies in Arizona to ensure every child’s birthday is a celebration for the parents as well as the child. We are unique because we present gifts to the parents so the child is never aware their gift started with Birthdays Remembered.

Gift Count

Birthdays Remembered set the goal to deliver 150 gifts in our fiscal year 2013 – 2014. We achieved that goal in 6 months and by the end of May 2014, we will have delivered 273 gifts. With the help of Birthdays Remembered 268 children in Arizona were celebrated because 268 families were able to remember their child’s birthday with a gift. Keep watching here as we meet and exceed our goal of 300 gifts delivered by May 31, 2015.

  • Our goal by May 31, 2015 – 300
  • Gifts delivered since our first  - 502

Please help us meet our new goal by volunteering to purchase or deliver gifts, identifying children in need of a gift, donating blank children’s birthday cards, wrapping paper or gift bags, NEW books, or reusable fabric tote bags.
