Birthdays Remembered

b-day-boy

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.

** A recent study showed there are more than 1600 homeless children in Arizona. They may not have a home, but they do have a birthday.**

June through October of this year Birthday Remembered provided 192 gifts to children in Arizona by partnering with 14 agencies that serve some of our most vulnerable and impoverished children. We continue to receive requests from new agencies such as our most recent City of Scottsdale, Victim Services and the Arizona Department of Child Protective Services.  Birthdays Remembered relies on your generosity to be able to fill these requests and those we know are yet to come.

Events like the Chico’s/ Soma Intimates birthday party on November 7th, 2014, and the Fiesta Bowl on December 31, 2014, and Cactus Bowl on January 2, 2015, are just a couple of ways to support us without added cost to you.  We invite you to check out the Donation page to view additional opportunities from Fry’s Reward Program and Amazon Smiles.

And, please, if you received an Annual Appeal letter from Birthdays Remembered, help us reach our goal of $5000 raised by sending your donation today.  If you did not receive a letter we will accept donations via the donation button.

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.
