I know you are all wondering why we feel the need to break out our leg warmers,disco balls, Donna Summer wigs and sparkly tops?????. The truth is we have the official numbers after inventory for our 2nd annual toy &book drive. Drummmmmmmmrolllllll; we are pleased to announce that we collected over 1253 pieces of toys & books with books totaling over 700!!!!!
We cannot begin to say thank you to everyone who donated, thought of donating, asked a question,sent a cheque, gave money, arranged a pickup, drove to our drop off location, followed us on Twitter,liked us on Facebook or helped in spreading the word about the RKMFoundation,Inc in any and every way.(That was a very long sentence:-)) We appreciate and love you and ask for your continued support.
This is amazing news. In just 2 years we have surpassed our estimated goals and continue to dream and implement programs that will be beneficial in bringing about monumental change for the children of rural Jamaica.
These books will help to foster an environment of literacy and a deep love for reading amongst our targeted group of children ages 4-10yrs. Each book we pulled from a box meant the opportunity for a child to dream beyond their current situation and be transported into another world through its exciting pages.We are overjoyed to share this news with you as we continue to work together to be a part of the solution .
Talk to you soon.
Much love,Walk good.
|Never forget to read to and with your little ones!!!|
