What is a birthday for a child, without a cake and a gift? Not much of a birthday. Simon Says Give is an organization founded by a 7-year-old Minnesota girl who wanted to make a difference in other children’s lives. What better way start than to make a needy child’s birthday a happy one.

Here in Sioux Falls 12-year-old Nolan Fleming is the chapter president continuing that mission. For the 2nd year the Sioux Falls Simon Says Give group is hosting their “Cops vs. Kids” event on Tuesday, September 26, from 5:30 to 7:30 PM at First Lutheran Church at 327 S. Dakota Avenue in downtown Sioux Falls.

Kids will be competing with law enforcement officers in lots of fun games, activities and sports. There will be food trucks and other food available for purchase.

Participants are asked to bring an item to go in a birthday bag for a child and to consider gifts in two categories: Gifts of need- –

  • Clothing – like coats, mittens, hats & scarves, (as we head toward winter), socks, underwear, pants, shirts, skirts, blouses, etc.
  • 3 in 1 body shampoo
  • Combs and brushes
  • Toothpaste and toothbrushes
  • School supplies

And, Gifts of fun- –

  • Books, games, dolls, Legos, music & movie dvds, puzzles, action figures, stuffed animals, toys, etc. ( anything a child would like).
  • Gift cards would also be greatly appreciated.

These birthday bags contain the ingredients for a birthday party, like cake mixes and frosting, some decorations, and of course the gifts which are donated. For many children in the Sioux Falls area, these wonderful “birthday bags” make their birthdays something to celebrate, which is how it should be.

Simon Says Give‘s ultimate goal is to develop a generation of unstoppable leaders by impacting 2 million kids in the next 5 years. You and your children can help this awesome kid-powered organization do just that!
