A huge thank you to Diane, who headed up the planning of the event, and to Katherine Majkrzak, who arranged for me to model, speak and perform at the fashion show!
Cheerful Givers is a 501c3 nonprofit organization that provides toy-filled birthday gift bags to food shelves and shelters so that parents living in poverty can give their child a birthday gift. In 2010, 52,227 less fortunate children were able to experience the joy of receiving a birthday gift from their parents because of the work done by the Cheerful Givers organization. The challenge facing Cheerful Givers for 2011 is to provide over 60,000 less fortunate children with birthday gifts. Their vision is that all parents living in poverty will be able to give their child a birthday gift.
