Mall of America® and Simon Says Give® to pack 2,500
“Birthday’s in a Box” for kids in need
WHAT: To kick off Mall of America’s 25th Birthday, Simon Says Give and Mall of America are joining forces on Tuesday, August 8 to assemble 2,500 birthdays in a box to support kids in need in the Rotunda at the World’s Largest Birthday Celebration.
Simon Says Give started 5 years ago when then 7-year-old Mandi Simon realized not all children were able to celebrate their birthday and wanted to change that. Simon Says Give provides everything a child needs to celebrate their special day from cake mixes and frosting to party supplies and even a gift for fun and a gift for need.
Volunteers are needed to pack 2,500 Birthday’s in a Box and can sign up to volunteer for the day at: http://www.signupgenius.com/go/904044da9ab2ea13-world
