VolunteerHighlightVolunteer Highlight
Geri Buchman

Our volunteer highlight this month is Geri Buchman. Geri not only donates a great amount of time to handwriting our Thank You Cards, but she also generously donates the stamps for the cards as well. Her handwriting is so perfect, it's hard to tell her writing from printed material!

"When I started volunteering in February of 2012, Birthday Dreams was three years old. Since then, the organization has had tremendous growth in parties and donors." - Geri Buchman 

From June 2014 until the end of that year, she wrote and sent 351 cards, 2015 was 562 cards and 2016 was 498 cards, and year to date she's written 136 and still has 125 to go!

WOW! Geri, we are so grateful for all your do for us here at Birthday Dreams! Thank you for your continued support. You are a gift to us!
