If you are like me you probably grew up with Smokey Bear, you remember learning about fire prevention and safe forest behavior in school. Well Smokey Bear is turning 75 years old this year and the Wisconsin Department of Natural Resources has chosen Box of Balloons to celebrate! The WDNR was tasked with finding a way to celebrate Smokey while giving back to the community so together we have set a goal of celebrating 200 kids in need this year with birthday parties.
Box of Balloons will supply the boxes, decorations, tableware, gifts and gift cards for cupcakes while the WDNR will provide party games, favors, eco-friendly balloons and Smokey Bear will be visiting as many of these birthday parties as possible! We are thrilled to be a part of this year long celebration and collaboration, it is an amazing opportunity to celebrate more children in need.
As we prepare to pack 200 birthday boxes we need help collecting the necessary supplies! Anyone anywhere can help donate to this project and change the life of a child. A birthday party is so much more than balloons and cake it is a day of love, joy and hope providing a child with confidence and self-esteem. Here is the list of items needed, if you are not local to Wisconsin you can donate via Amazon. We will be hosting a birthday box packing party on February 19th in Madison, WI!.
Happy Birthday Smokey Bear we are excited to celebrate with you!
