Birthday Dreams is a non-profit organization, our campaign's objective is to fund as many birthday parties as possible for homeless children in the Puget Sound area. We work with homeless shelters and transitionalagencies to learn of children's upcoming birthdays and then with much volunteer help - we provide all the items a family needs to celebrate the big day.
Birthday Dreams and Groupon Grassroots, the philanthropic arm of Groupon, announce the launch of a local campaign to purchase Birthday Boxes that contain everything for a homeless child to celebrate their birthdaywith family and friends.
The Birthday-in-a-Box campaign will be available on theSeattle Groupon Grassroots page(http://www.groupon.com/deals/birthday-dreams)beginning on Thursday, February 21, 2013 and running through Wednesday, February 27, 2013. Utilizing Groupon Grassroots’ collective action model, Groupon followers can pledge support for the Birthday-in-a-Box initiative inincrements of $10 with each $100.00 raised providing one Birthday Box. Specialty Metals will match the first 30 donations.
