We are trying to find a place that will either match our donation of teddy bears, give us a discount, free shipping, etc. I am trying to get Disney.com to help us out, because they do a lot of great work to help out kids and I think their established characters like Pooh, Eeyore, Mickey, etc. have an established history and trust with children that will help the surviving children of Newtown, CT feel comforted and let them know that they are not alone. If anyone could help us out by contacting Disney either by email, phone, whatever you think you can do, that would be really great.
My children go to a wonderful, small school. They don’t have a lot of money and whatever they do have, they stretch so that every student there receives a great eduation. The best part, this school is teaching its students about love and compassion. I have never met a more compassionate, polite group of kids in my life. They take these events very seriously and work very hard to help the less fortunate. Every month they raise money and run food drives to help the less fortunate even though to be honest, the school could really use the money.
I am asking for help, because this school works so hard to teach the children the importance of compassion and hard work that I would like to help them out. Anyone here familiar with Box Tops for Education? A lot of products have them. You just cut them off, place them in an envelope and hand them off to a school so that the school can use the money for books, supplies, etc.
This is the favor that I am asking, if you’re not already using Box Tops to support a school in a child’s life, would you please consider sendng them to me? I will pass them off to this school that could really use the help. I am going to run this like a contest. The state that sends the most Box Tops my way by January 31, 2013 will get to decide the first short story that I will release during my medical leave.
My address is P.O. Box 1033, Lakeville, MA 02347
Thank you in advance for any help that you’re able to give.
