December 2020
With your support we are able to continue to bring hope, joy and a sense of self-worth to homeless children with the gift of a birthday party. Below is feedback from the mother of two girls (12 &15). A victim of domestic violence, she and her girls lived in a shelter for 8 months before being placed in income-based housing early this year. She said:

".... Money for birthdays and holidays, extra anything, is a struggle... being the great girls that they are, they are (the girls) always saying 'it's okay mom, I don't need anything'... I know they still kids and deep down DO want a birthday, so they were happy and surprised when they came home to a house full of decor and a few gifts for each of them. They were excited and grateful."

Community Support and Recognition
Volunteer Spotlight | The Mattauchs
Birthday Dreams would like to recognize Sheryl and Barry Mattauch. This amazing couple are definitely all-stars! Sheryl bakes cakes for us, Barry separated most, if not all, of the Halloween candy that was donated by Ridwell and is applying his engineering skills to troubleshooting some faulty electronics that were donated earlier this year. Sheryl and Barry are also helping bolster our volunteer army by getting their grandchildren involved in helping out.

Sheryl and Barry. Birthday Dreams appreciates you!
We received over $3000 in donations on Giving Tuesday (exclusive of matching gifts).

Renton Christian School (RCS) selected Birthday Dreams for its Thanksgiving Community Service project. 6th-8th graders decorated party hats and goodie bags, and donated over 2000 goodie bag filler and over 100 juice boxes.

Thank you RCS Middle School!
Thank you to an Anonymous Donor - Christmas Magic

Donors not only care about the children we serve, they also care about our staff. In years past, we've tried to do something special for Christmas for our hard working staff. Due to the hardships with Covid-19, we were not able to do anything this year. When one of our loyal donor families heard this, they decided they wanted to help our staff give their families a merry Christmas. These generous donors sent in a donation specifically to be used for staff bonuses! Thank you to all those who support Birthday Dreams and our mission. It really does take a village.
