MoreBirthdays.com

Description:

When we were approached to help GROW build morebirthdays.com it could not have come at a better time. After a year in which we lost two family members to cancer here at THE METHOD we couldn’t be more touched or motivated. Built with a passion to help, a spark of inspiration that only a one-of-a-kind shop like GROW could provide, and the joy of working with old friends, we worked to build a campaign site for The American Cancer Society. It was a labor of love, an honor and a privilege.
