It's that time again. Time to start thinking about school and all that it entails. If you have school-aged children, I'm sure you've been thinking about school supplies, lunches, and schedules. I hope that you have all that you need. I know that many families do not. And that's where this fundraiser comes in.
The fabulous Andie from Crayon Freckles has teamed up with The Boys and Girls Club of America to raise money for school supplies and resources for youth that is in need. Here's what the BGCA has to say about this campaign:
Too many kids in America are falling behind in school and life before they even get started. Oftentimes, this is not due to a lack of ability but to the lack of access to both basic tools, such as notebooks and pens, and to quality after-school programming that helps prepare kids for academic success and, inevitably, a great future.
The goal is to raise $500 dollars by September 14th and we are already halfway there! If you have everything that you need, and are in a position to help others, we would love for you to consider donating to this worthy cause.
And with a donation of at least $10.00 you will receive a free ebook containing over 50 activities from more than 40 bloggers! Andie has worked very hard to put this together and it's an absolutely wonderful resource.
This ebook gives you a ton of ideas in an easy to read format, and best of all, it's all in one place! You are sure to find something fun and new. And in case you needed more convincing, I thought I'd give you a peek at some of the contents.
So if you'd like to help (and get this gem of an ebook!) please visit the Bloggers Filling Backpacks BGCA fundraising page and make your donation. Thank you so much!
