Volunteer Highlight
Morgan's 11th Birthday - Giving Back


We want to recognize 11 year old Morgan Brown who spent her birthday this year giving back to others. To express her gratitude for all she had, she decided to have her friends and their parents come together and donate gifts and their time making goody bags for homeless children.

Thank you so much to Morgan and her family and friends for supporting Birthday Dreams with such a selfless act of kindness. Your kindness and generosity is inspiring, keep it up! 
Volunteer Cake Highlights
One of the many fun things about Birthday Dreams is getting to see all the amazing, personalized cakes that get delivered to us. We are so grateful to all of our wonderful volunteers for creating these cakes for the children to enjoy on their birthday.
