_Happy New Year!! Let's all start the year off right by donating time, money or whatever we can to help others. Here is a great charity that you should have in your area (google it) for the kids: http://www.blessingsinabackpack.org/
_Information from their website: Blessings in a Backpack is a program that feeds elementary school children whose families qualify for the federal Free and Reduced Price Meal program, and have little to no food on the weekends. According to their research, better test scores, improved reading skills, positive behavior, improved health and increased attendance have all been attributed to the success of this program.


I was looking at the recent fundraisers and was so touched by the story by Trinity. She wanted to sell her suncatchers to raise funds for the Backpack program.

There are highlights as well of other fundraisers from  young children, teenagers and adults. Even some celebrities!

You can help out by donating, fundraising or adopting a school! So many ways to make a difference in a child's life.

We live in North Carolina and the Food Bank of Central & Eastern NC participates in the Backpack program (http://www.foodbanknc.org/programs/backpack/index.asp). Here is an awesome mural about the program and it's impact on the children, schools and community.
We will be planning some donations and a cool fundraiser so keep posted! Please share with us your favorite charity!

Your comment will be posted after it is approved.
