I could be sewing. In fact I'd like to be sewing, I haven't been in the sewing studio all week. But today is a day for giving. A day to give of my time for an organization named Cheerful Givers.
Have you heard of them? No?
Cheerful Givers is a non-profit organization that gives birthday gift bags to homeless shelters and food shelves so that every child has a gift on their birthday.
I would guess most of us take for granted that our own birthday's will be celebrated in some manner. If we have children, or nieces and nephews, we make sure their day is special with lots of cake and ice cream and gifts galore. However, there are plenty of kids you don't get to have their special day celebrated. That's where Cheerful Givers comes in. You can read their story here.
So today, instead of sewing, I volunteered to be an assistant face painter at the big birthday bash at the Mall of America. Can't make it to MOA but want to help out? Click here to learn how you can become a cheerful giver too.
