The new year has started and perhaps you have "volunteer more" on your goals list. Well we here at Box of Balloons want to make volunteering and giving back to your community as easy as possible. Let's be realistic, we all set out with huge lofty goals but then life happens. Our daily schedule fills up, kids take priority, work demands increase or unexpected challenges arise and pretty soon volunteering has to be at the bottom of the list. We get it, and that's why we want to make it easy and doable for everyone!
Ok here is how easy it is...simply sign up. Check out where we are located and choose the team closest to you. We don't need a ton of info and you don't need to have a background check or training. You simply need to believe children matter and birthdays are important.
Sign Up Here
(If we do not have a chapter near you please consider starting one! Or spread the word so one can be started in your community)
So once you have signed up on a team that chapter leader will be in contact with you and add you to their email list. Once they receive a birthday box request from a community social worker the chapter leader will send out a sign up with all the needed items for that birthday party. You can open the email and decide if you are able to help with that particular birthday box. If not, delete.
Each box has the same seven categories but yet each birthday box is unique to fit the child in need. It costs about $100 to celebrate one child in need. As a volunteer you can also Build-A-Box and put together an entire birthday box buying all seven categories. Many volunteers like this option instead of helping out several times a month or year they can build a box a few times and still make a big impact.
So there you have it, an easy way to get involved and the change the life of a child. A birthday party is so much more than the balloons and cake, it is a day of love, joy and hope for the entire family in need. A birthday party provides a child in a need confidence, self-esteem and positive self-worth. What we are going matters and we would love to have you join the team!
