I currently work with about 24 kids in residential foster-care. They are all amazing young individuals that just haven't been dealt a very good deck of cards. The kids get everything they need to the basic. I have noticed that their pillows are very lumpy and pretty much horrible. ( they are the 2.50 pillows from Walmart) I would like to be able to get them better pillows for christmas and have a lady i know embroider their names on special pillowcases for christmas. When they leave our facility they will get to take the pillow with them and hopefully remind them of all the awesome things we try to teach them and to just have something of their own is always nice.
Also there are a couple things that may be on their christmas lists that we may not have the funds for. The state will give an alotted amount for the children as a whole. Some kids need things more then others.
I set my goal at 200.00 because Thats what it would take for the pillows. I would love to see more then that, all of which would go to getting those special things that otherwise we may not be able to get. A little prayer goes a long way too!
God bless and thanks in advance for taking the time to read!
For donating 50.00 dollars you will receive a thank you card with a picture of the pillows and/or gifts. I'm sorry to say but do to privacy reasons i will not be able to take photos of the children.
