A Big Thank You!
- to all those who made Birthday Buddies Inc. such an amazing success. After twelve years of operations delivering over 1,000 fabulous birthday GiftPacks to deserving children living in Second Stage Housing for abused women Birthday Buddies Inc. Manitoba will be handing over the responsibility for future birthday celebrations to the facilities that we have been servicing.
This will be made possible by a donation from Birthday Buddies Inc. to each of the shelters which will be allocated specifically to fund future Birthday GiftPacks.
This ensures that these deserving children will continue to have the delicious anticipation of receiving special gifts and a birthday celebration in their honour.
