Volunteering for Birthdays Remembered has a positive impact on our community – the Valley of the Sun. It is also a two-way street. 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.

Did you know that everyday a child somewhere has a birthday?  Did you know that not every family is able to celebrate their child’s birthday?

Just for a moment, close your eyes and imagine today is your little girl’s birthday.  All she’s asked for is a pretty dress.  But last night you and your little girl had to escape to a protective shelter because your live-in boyfriend was threatening to harm the two of you. You had to leave with just the clothes on your backs.   Imagine your sadness at how your lives have evolved to the point where you can’t even celebrate you little girl’s birthday with a pretty dress.

Last year during the months of June, July, and August, Birthdays Remembered delivered 42 gifts to 13 partner agencies for families struggling like this mother and her little girl. But this is just this one of the difficult life situations that prevents families from celebrating their child’s birthdays with a gift.

This year for June, July, and August our gift requests have increased by almost 300% and we have delivered 126 gifts to 14 agencies for families who struggle.

There are no words to describe the feeling of knowing you helped  to make a birthday a special celebration for a child and their family.    We invite you to catch the feeling by donating your time, talents, and dollars.
