PlaceFull and SkyMania are throwing a birthday party for Birthday Dreams, a local non-profit dedicated to providing Happy Birthdays for thousands of kids living in homeless shelters all over the Puget Sound region. And, guess what? YOU’RE invited to help celebrate!
You can help Birthday Dream’s mission of giving every kid a birthday party by registering your kiddos to attend JUMP for Birthdays at SkyMania Trampolines in Kirkland on Saturday, August 17. Enjoy 90 minutes of jump time, tasty hot dogs from Pioneer Grill, prize giveaways and, of course, birthday cake provided by PinkaBella Cupcakes! The cost is only $15 per kid and every penny goes straight to Birthday Dreams.
Since 2008, Birthday Dreams has been traveling to local shelters and organizing birthday parties for kids who don’t normally get to celebrate their birthdays. With parents struggling to find work and housing, birthdays usually just mean another day in the shelter, much like any other. But, with the help of a dedicated team of volunteers and lots of donations, Birthday Dreams hosts parties at shelters that include everything from games and activities, to face painting, to presents, to the all-important birthday cake. And they do it all with donations from good-hearted people who love to bake, give gifts, entertain kids, or just donate their money.
Want to get involved? The easiest way is to come to the party on August 17th! If you can’t make it you can always donate directly to Birthday Dreams by clicking here. If you’d like to donate a giveaway for the party or donate your event services (catering, music, fun activities, etc.) please drop a line to firstname.lastname@example.org.
We hope to see you on August 17 at SkyMania!
