Any single act that you do intentionally – can change the world. Giving of ourselves, even when we have little, is a very spiritual act. It shapes us, it helps us see the world through fresh eyes. Give whatever you can spare, and let’s make the world a better place!
A good friend of our family (a native residing in Jamaica) has introduced us to Preschool Principal Shawlene of Bunch Of Stars E.C.I. School in the small town of Old Hope. She was, at first, a bit shocked at the notion that we were interested in supporting her students. Ms. Shawlene had a sweet melody in her voice as she listed a few things the 3, 4, and 5-year-old students could use. I could hear in her voice she didn’t want to ask for much – and certainly not for everything she needed. She said, “The children need pencils, books, and crayons – crayons make them happy.”
Crayons. Something many children all over the world have shoeboxes full of – and never have to think twice about them. Crayons.
Ms. Shawlene also said there is a need for age appropriate CD’s for the students.
Our goal is two fold:
1. Raise funds for school supplies.
2. Raise funds for these youngsters to be able to attend school.
The fee to attend school for a child this age is about $30 a term and there are three terms in a year (total $ 90USD/yr). In addition, lunch for each child is $1USD per day. The average salary in Jamaica is less than $200 in USD a month. This puts a big financial strain on families. (imagine high school costs there which are about $150 USD a month!) Children throughout the world hunger for education and have the right to be educated. Many of these kids travel MILES on foot along the hectic roadways to attend school.
Please join me in making a difference in the life of a child. Together we can combine our small donations into making one BIG impact!
100% of all proceeds will be used for supplies, enrollment fees, and delivery of items/funds.
