Mission Statement

The mission of Birthdays Remembered is to provide birthday gift packages for any child in Arizona whose need is identified by a partner agency.

Vision Statement

The vision of Birthdays Remembered is to partner with all agencies that serve children in Arizona to ensure that no child will go without a birthday gift and no family will feel the pain of not being able to give their child that gift.

Our Core Values

Birthdays Remembered will maintain family dignity by ensuring a child who might not otherwise receive a gift will have their birthday remembered by a parent or caregiver without regard to gender, race, color, sexual orientation, religion, creed, or socio-economic status. 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.

All information pertaining to a child’s age, family, or situation will be kept strictly confidential and will only be shared as needed with the partner agency liaison.

Birthdays Remembered will ensure the quality, consistency, and integrity of gifts delivered by attempting to match gifts with the child’s request whenever possible, and to review gifts before for appropriateness.

About the Gifts

Birthday packages consist of a gift that the child has specifically requested (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.
