Birthday Dreams continues to fulfill urgent birthday requests while maintaining the health and safety of our employees and the community we serve.

With your support, we are able to bring hope, joy and a sense of self-worth to homeless children with the gift of a birthday party. Below is a quote from a 13-year old Birthday Dreams' recipient who is currently living in a shelter.

"We asked you for help so I can have a birthday. I was excited... Thank you for giving hope for my birthday."
