BLOG: Thanks From Cheerful Givers

126,000 kids receive a birthday gift in 2012

On behalf of the 126,000 kids in Minnesota who were able to receive a birthday gift from their parents this year, Eagan-based nonprofit Cheerful Givers wishes to thank the many donors, volunteers, partners and supporters who made that possible.

While holiday giving is always great, the impact on a young child's self-esteem is also great when they get to celebrate the one special day that recognizes when they were born. Toy-filled birthday bags send a message that every child is important.

Because birthdays happen every day of the year, Cheerful Givers appreciates the help it receives from individuals, businesses, foundations and all who choose to get involved.  To learn more visit www.cheerfulgivers.org
