Comments for a Cause! In the month of September I had 92 comments, equaling a $46 donation to Make Our Day which I'm excited is going to be matched by another donor! Our combined efforts will cover 8 weeks of classes and tutoring for one of the Thai children. Isn't it amazing how we can make such an impact in just a month of commenting!
In the month of October I'm looking forward to making an impact for children in crisis centers and foster care nationwide by donating $0.50 for every comment made on my blog to My Stuff Bags Foundation.
My Stuff Bags goal is to provide a My Stuff Bag filled with new belongings to each of the nearly 300,000 children nationwide that enter crisis shelters and foster care each year with nothing of their own. These children are often taken from their homes, or lack there of, with no possessions. The My Stuff Bag is a cute, individual duffel bag filled with essentials that are theirs to keep like clothing, toys, a stuffed animal, school supplies, toiletries and a blanket. One neat thing is that most of the blankets are handmade from people across the country.
Children in all 50 states have benefited from My Stuff Bags. I was surprised, yet happy, that they serve 22 agencies in the state of Iowa. I have a special place in my heart for any child that has to be and needs to be moved to a new home, and I'm so pleased there is a group like My Stuff Bags that gives those children hope for their new phase of life.
So help me, help these children not only get their own stuff but also an outlook on life, by commenting all month long. Have you ever heard of the My Stuff Bags Foundation before? What other programs do you know that help kids in foster care or at crisis centers? Remember to Comment for a Cause!
