Gift Team Adventures

Surprising an individual with a gift is a wonderful feeling, especially when it’s for no particular reason. This gesture can facilitate joy, excitement, and really, it’s just plain fun. This is why I enjoy fulfilling the Gifts Director position for The Cupcake Girls Portland.

Our monthly visit in February is almost always my favorite of the entire year. We deliver Valentines Day gifts including a flower to each of the dancers in our regular clubs. This year the Gifts Team created 150 handmade, braided bracelets housed in pillow boxes, also assembled by our team. In addition to the bracelet, we included a gerbera daisy from Emerald Petals to add an extra bit of presentation pizazz.  

Unfortunately I will be unable to visit the clubs this month because I am 40 weeks pregnant. Luckily, we have an incredible team of case managers who will be visiting our regular clubs to check in with the dancers and distribute Easter gifts. 
If you consider yourself a crafty person, enjoy assembling gifts, or simply love the act of giving, please join our team! We’re always looking for passionate individuals seeking a creative outlet in the volunteer world. 

Peace, Love & Cupcakes,
