Q: When did you start volunteering for Birthday Dreams?
A: Dalia - 2014 for the Auction
Yosef - Same as my mom.
Q: Why did you choose to volunteer with Birthday Dreams?
A: Dalia - I saw their booth at an event. After speaking to their awesome staff and learning more about what they did, I thought that it sounded like a great cause and I wanted to help. I love being able to share this volunteer experience with y son and continue to teach him how to be giving and thankful for everything that he has. I have always taught him that there are people in the world that don't have food to eat, clean water to drink, nice clothes to wear, a roof over their head, let alone toys to play with. I want him to remember that we can help make a difference.
Yosef - Because it sounded fun and I like to help kids that don't have birthdays.
Q: What was the reason you started to volunteer?
A: Dalia - I wanted to help plan their auction, so they could raise money for the kids' birthday parties.
Yosef - Because my mom started.
Q: How do you volunteer for Birthday Dreams? (Make cakes, deliver, on-site parties, etc.)
A: Dalia - I am on their auction planning committee. Yosef and I have been wanting to help with on-site parties for a long time and we want to make cakes, although I don't make the prettiest ones.
Yosef - Do events like Kids Ninja Warrior. I help set-up and it's fun!
Q: What is your favorite part of volunteering?
A: Dalia - I love knowing that I helped kids have a birthday that they wouldn't have otherwise.
Yosef - that I get to help kids that don't have toys.
Q: What has helped you want to volunteer more?
A: Dalia - I really enjoy everyone who is a part of Birthday Dreams and how passionate they are about their mission. I've enjoyed seeing how much the organization has grown these past few years as well.
Yosef - To help kids that don't have birthdays and don't have toys.
Q: Share one of your favorite experiences with Birthday Dreams.
A: Dalia - I loved planning the Kids Ninja Warrior event with my son. He helped make the promotional video and then competed in the event. He also helped set up before the event started and had fun making some of the announcements on the microphone.
Yosef - I liked to do hard things at Kids Ninja Warrior. I'm happy that I did that video for Kids Ninja Warrior too.
Q: Use one word to describe what you feel when you do work with Birthday Dreams (fulfilled, joy, love, hope, etc.)
