Sun Prairie, Wisconsin

Michele Olsen || Chapter Leader

Hello! My name is Michele Olsen and I help lead Box of Balloons in Sun Prairie.  My husband Mark and I have been proud members of this wonderful community since 2003.   I decided to get involved with BOB because I saw an opportunity to include my 11 year old daughter in some of the volunteer work I was doing.  She loved the idea of making (and eating extra!) cupcakes for the children BOB celebrates. 


Growing up I remember all my extended family gathered at our home each year to celebrate my birthdays, singing before cake and ice-cream and making me feel so very special.  As a school social worker in Sun Prairie I found joy in finding ways to bring smiles to the faces of the many children I encountered. BOB allows me, with the help of my four talented children, to continue doing this for children in need in our community on their most special day of the year.
