Share Your Birthday With Us
Here at Birthday Dreams we love celebrating birthdays! It's what we do! Our volunteers and partners make it possible to do what we do. Often we are asked, "what do you need" or "what can I do." 

As we move into a season of growth, we are expanding to a new facility! It is very exciting!

So if you often wonder how you can help with limited time or about sharing your Birthday with Birthday Dreams? 
It is simple. You create a fundraiser on your Facebook page and in lieu of gifts on your special day, Birthday Dreams can receive donations from your social network. It helps us with funds and to spread the word about the work we do!
For more information on Facebook fundraisers:
We would love to celebrate with you! You make it possible to bring smiles to the kids we serve. 
Thank you for your consideration.

Cake Community
In this issue, we celebrate our Cake Bakers! What’s a birthday without cake?
Last month our wonderful cake bakers baked and donated 46 cakes !
Cake Baker Highlights – Did you know that we have 5 volunteers that have baked over 100 cakes for homeless children? A HUGE thank you to -

Jane Hashash - 160 cakes baked
Penny Beane - 156 cakes baked
Marcia Lovin-McGovern - 147 cakes baked
Angela Roe - 134 cakes baked
Christine Shackleton - 132 cakes baked
We always show beautifully decorated cakes in our newsletter – we have some very talented decorators! What about those people who make yummy cakes but are not fancy decorators? Homeless children are truly happy to get a cake with their name on it. Please don’t be discouraged when you see the fancy cake pictures. Birthday Dreams has to purchase cakes and cupcakes every month to supplement the donations we get – your cakes matter, too!
