BENEFITING: TOGETHER WE RISE CORPORATION
ORGANIZER: TOGETHER WE RISE CORPORATION
As the holidays approach, I started thinking about the things I wanted. While I can think of a few items to ask Santa for, I decided this year I would pass on asking for presents for myself.
I found out about Together We Rise and learned that foster children travel from home to home sometimes with nothing more than a garbage bag to hold their belongings. This broke my heart.
So this year, in lieu of putting together a fancy Christmas list and asking for gifts for myself, I am asking for donations to build duffle bags complete with a teddy bear, blanket, hygiene kit, crayons, and coloring book. My fundraising goal is $300 which will provide 12 duffle bags to 12 children. If my goal is met, I will receive bags that can be decorated so each child has their own unique bag. So there may also be a bag decorating party for anyone who wants to help. Once the bags are made, I will be paired with a charity coordinator and they will be delivered locally.
Please help me reach my goal and make a difference in the lives of some children.
