Let the fundraising begin!

Our very first fundraising campaign was launched today on Indiegogo! The goal is to raise $4,000.00. If we reach our goal, we will be able to purchase 150 backpacks for the kids at Agape Orphanage, La Main Tendre Orphanage, Frem Orphanage, Cite Soleil Youth Center and Mix Emmanuel Primary School. If we don’t reach our goal, we will purchase as many backpacks as we can. If we surpass our goal, we will use the additional funds for any or all of the following: additional backpacks for other schools in need (we already have a couple in mind!), other classroom necessities such as chalk, chalkboard erasers, arts and crafts supplies, and books.

Our clothing donation drive is still underway. We are collecting gently used and new clothing and shoes for ages 1 – 14 (both boys and girls) as well as new underwear for all ages. If you would like to hold a donation drive, please email us and we’ll give you more details. If you live in the Phoenix, AZ area we will pick up any donations too!
