Governor Tim Pawlenty proclaimed April 4th, 2009, "Cheerful Givers Day" in Minnesota. We celebrated by throwing The Great Minnesota Birthday Party at the Mall of America.
Cheerful Givers provides toy-filled birthday gift bags to food shelves and shelters so that parents living in poverty can give their child a birthday gift. We believe this simple gesture boosts self-esteem, enhances self-worth, and strengthens bonds in families.
