Making every birthday special
We understand that every birthday holds extraordinary significance for a critically ill child, symbolizing not only the passing of another year but also a remarkable achievement. In our programs, we strive to make these occasions truly memorable. Children begin a fresh new year by receiving a surprise present on their special day; this simple act of kindness delivers joy and hope!
Our Birthday Blast volunteers work hard to make sure these gifts also include a personalized item for each child; sending a box of Legos to a child that loves construction, a cozy knitted hat, or a bunch of colorful balloons to greet a four-year-old just home from chemo. Working with companies and individuals, our dedicated Birthday Blast volunteers tirelessly ensure that each birthday is celebrated.
Casey Cares celebrated its 1,000th Birthday Blast in 2009 with Justin while he celebrated his 5th! Casey Cares has now grown so large that every year we are providing Birthday Blast surprises to over 1,000 critically ill children. What took us nine years to accomplish at first, we now do almost every year.
