The Issue: Lack of Resources to Celebrate Kids' Birthdays

Birthday Dreams works with more than 37 homeless shelters and transitional-housing agencies across the greater Puget Sound area. Many of the children the organization’s volunteers meet have never celebrated a birthday. They often do not even know when their birthday is, as their parents have been forced to forgo yearly celebrations to afford food and other necessities.

The Campaign: Hosting Birthday Parties for Kids in Need

If 30 people donate $10 to this Grassroots campaign, then Birthday Dreams can provide birthday parties for six Seattle-area children experiencing homelessness, thanks to matching donations from Specialty Metals. Donations will be matched up to $300. Birthday Dreams volunteers deliver a complete party kit directly to the child's shelter or transitional home; it is packed with festive balloons and streamers, goody bags, party games, and a cake adorned with the child's name. Every child also receives a personalized birthday gift. Each additional $100 raised will provide a birthday party for another child.

Birthday Dreams

Birthday Dreams’ volunteers devote themselves to one simple principle: all children deserve a birthday, regardless of economic circumstance. By working with homeless shelters and transitional-housing agencies throughout the community, they’re able to help children in need enjoy one special day of celebration. Their meticulous party planning leaves no detail unaccounted for—everything from eating utensils and personalized gifts to decorations and a fresh-baked cake ensures the child's day will be full of smiles. They encourage community involvement by soliciting handmade gifts from local crafters and inviting volunteers to bring their own children to help out at the party. Since its founding, Birthday Dreams has curated more than 1,100 birthday parties across the greater Puget Sound area, averaging about 60 celebrations each month.
