Fall is almost here. With the new school season nearly upon us, we need not remind our friends and supporters of the great sense of responsibility we all share when we hear about less fortunate school kids across the globe who spend their summer days working hard so that they can earn enough money to pay for their school clothes, textbooks and supplies.
This year, Child Foundation is once again having a Scholastic Fund Drive to help young and needy school children with special educational backpacks called “Backpack of Hope” that containing books, notebooks, school supplies, and in some areas clothes. Our goal is to finish this drive with your help and support at the earliest possible time so that these packages can be delivered well in time for the start of the new school year.
Last year, we were able to distribute around 2,000 Backpacks of Hope, and hopefully, with your help, we will assist more children this year. Each “Backpack of Hope” is estimated to cost $40 this year which includes a backpack, school supplies, and delivery charges. We are inviting all you kind-hearted sponsors that are willing to participate in this program to send their donations for providing one or more of a school backpack to our office address or by clicking here.
For those who donate at least 10 Backpacks of Hope, we will send pictures and information of children who have benefited from their generosity.Either way, you will have the collective thanks and enormous gratitude of thousands of very grateful school children who will now experience a happy start to their school year.
