THE STORY:

Once again, I have decided to take the plunge and run the Boston Marathon. This year, I have chosen to run to support the non-profit Cradles to Crayons, an amazing organization that my brother David works for.

Cradles to Crayons, located in Boston, serves hundreds of thousands of homeless and low income children, providing them with the essential items they need to thrive - clothes, winter coats, boots, shoes, backpacks filled with school supplies, books, and more. As a teacher, I know how important it is that children have the things they need so that can succeed in life.

Please consider donating to this wonderful organization. Know that anything you can give, even $5, will make a difference in the life of a child, whether it be through receiving a winter coat, boots, a backpack full of school supplies, clothes, or toys. If I had $5,000 of my own, I would readily donate it to Cradles to Crayons. But I don't, so I really, really appreciate you helping me to reach my fundraising goal. Thank you so much!

 

CRADLES TO CRAYONS INC wrote -

Founded in 2002, Cradles to Crayons is an innovative non-profit that provides children from birth through age 12, living in homeless or low-income situations, with the essential items they need to thrive - at home, at school and at play. We supply these items free of charge by engaging and connecting communities that have with communities that need. The Cradles to Crayons model relies on the generous financial, in-kind, and volunteer support from individuals and families to provide fundamental resources to thousands of the most financially- disadvantaged children living across Massachusetts.

A winter coat for a homeless child not only warms the body, but it fosters hope.  A backpack full of supplies at the beginning of the school year for a child served by Cradles to Crayons means they are excited and eager to learn instead of nervous and self-conscious.  Clothing for a week for two children means a mother can make purchasing food for her family a priority, without guilt or regret. By using the power of community connections to fill a niche in the non-profit sector, Cradles to Crayons has impacted the lives of more than 290,000 children living in low-income or homeless situations across Massachusetts.
