Birthday Greetings 2018 – 2020

Our birthday greeting project is a fundraiser which enables members to send an adorable animated birthday email greeting to a friend for a donation of $1.00 per greeting and help the chapter raise money for Sustaining the Mind. One Greeting is sent with all the names listed. It is completely voluntary. No information is taken from registration forms. Members who wish to participate send an email with month and day of their birthday to the birthday greeting chair-person. A master list is compiled and quarterly a list is sent to the entire membership of the birthday ladies for the coming 3 months. Friends then circle the names on the list and send in a check made out to BNC for $1.00 per name. At the beginning of each month each birthday “girl” gets an adorable animated email greeting card listing all those who have wished them a happy birthday.

In the 3 years the program has been in operation over $4500 has been raised to support Sustaining the Mind at absolutely no cost to the chapter.To be included for 2018, email your month and date to Cathy
