Birthday Kits

Updated: Apr 17, 2019

We decided to expand our methods of raising funds for our organization by developing a new venture we like to call Birthday Surprise. Birthday Surprise offers parents the opportunity to send their love through purchasing a package that includes balloons, cupcakes, and a poster which are placed on the student’s door on their birthday! After determining a sustained interest, the 2018-2019 Birthday Kits team has decided to temporarily shut down sales to reimagine the kits and bring parents a wider variety with a more sophisticated ordering process. We plan to unveil the new product for the spring 2019 semester and anticipate measurable success!
