Hello, everyone! Thank for you taking a moment to check out our fundraiser and what we are trying to do. I'm an Usborne Books consultant and wanted to take advantage of the fact that they LOVE to give back to charities. I'm trying to raise $1,000 (which will be 50% matched by Usborne) to donate books to Beech Acres Parenting Center.
Foster care and adoption are very close to our hearts, as many of our family and friends have fostered and adopted/hope to adopt in the future. I've gotten to know those involved with Beech Acres (in Cincinnati, OH) and wanted to give back in some way. If we raise money for these books they will go to 2 different programs they support:
Kindergarten Readiness: Aiming for 3-5 year olds in foster care and ensuring that they and their foster parents have the books and supplies needed to get them ready to start school.
The Foster Care Team: They strive to celebrate each birthday of the kids in care with a small gift & book! They would be happy to receive a fresh supply for the families. While Foster Care is filled with kids of all ages, most recently babies & toddlers have been in need of placement.
No amount is too small. Let's bless these kids with books and give them something of their own to cherish and enjoy.
