It's the season of giving!
#GiveJoy #GiveHope #GiveBack
Studies show that 84% of adults would prefer to receive a meaningful gift that would help someone else rather than a traditional gift such as clothing or electronics. Honor a friend or a loved one with an alternative gift and change a child's life today.
Don't forget your year-end tax-deductible charitable donations for 2017. Please consider a donation to Birthday Dreams. Donation deadline is December 31st to qualify for 2017 tax credits. For questions on qualifying contributions, contact your tax professional.

Microsoft - Give Campaign
Micro Gives Event (October)
We met with various Microsoft teams during the annual Microsoft Give Campaign in October. We had many teams volunteer their time. These teams did things like creating goodie bags and creating focus groups who provided feedback on our social media and our websites. Other groups designed party games for on-site birthday parties. Microsoft employees were paid for their time and Birthday Dreams were provided matching funds for volunteer hours and donation. Microsoft’s Give Campaign has donated over a Billion dollars over its 35 years of employee participation. Thank you to all the Microsoft teams who attended and volunteered at various Give events!

*Photos from one of the Micro Give event are from the “Design an on-site party game." Teams worked to create a party game for one of our on-site parties. Games created: Math Bowling, Big Memory game, Little Artist Canvas Paint kit, Slime Bowling, PomPom Catapult and Ping Pong Ball (egg) Balance walk.
