Join us for Celebrate Together 2020!
In case you missed it, last week we announced the kick off of our re-envisioned annual gala.

The homeless children of the Puget Sound need your help. Birthday Dreams is there to bring hope, joy and a sense of self-worth with the gift of a birthday party. To accomplish that, we rely on the generosity of the community. We need you to gather your friends, family, neighbors and loved ones as we raise money for Birthday Dreams!

Start by creating a free, online fundraiser on our event website today! Then, stayed tuned for next week, where we will launch a variety of events beginning Tuesday, Sept. 22 through Saturday, Sept. 26 that you can participate in to support Birthday Dreams.

We will even be calling you at home so you can join the Grand Finale, live! Make sure to bid on your favorite items before the auction closes at 8 p.m.
In the meantime, don't forget to create your fundraiser so others can donate to your page in support of Birthday Dreams. We are counting on you so we can continue to make birthday dreams come true for children. Plus, check out our video series that you can share to rally support for Celebrate Together.

Many of these children are too young to understand why they can’t celebrate their birthday, or why it has been cancelled due to COVID-19. Providing some normalcy by celebrating with a birthday party is a small token that can bring joy and help remind them that they aren't so different from other children and families.




Thank you all for your support and we look forward to sharing more next week!
