Soon our kids will be returning to school. We are so blessed that we can provide for our kids and have them prepared by day one of school but not everyone is so fortunate. But with a helping hand I believe we can make a difference and help provide for these families! Check out to causes that will help some families prepare their kids for school in the Fall....
Please check out my friend's e-show! She has an online bookstore with Usborne books. If she has a successful show she earns free books that she is going to donate to some kids in Harlem. Her daughter is an educational coordinator so the books would go to the kids in the organization her daugther works for.
Here is the info and link to her e-show:
You are invited to an Usborne Books eShow to explore the world of Usborne Books. A child's interest in reading and learning is stimulated by the lavish illustrations and informative content. There are over 1300 bright, colorful and fun titles covering activities, puzzles and a wide range of subjects for children of all ages.
Usborne Books - the books kids love to read!

It's a rewarding experience when a child opens a book and discovers the magic of reading.
Also if you are in the New York area- Christ Tabernacle is holding a backpack drive called Operation Backpack. It's to donate filled backpacks to kids in the area who are in need of school supplies. Last year the church was able to donate around 900 backpacks. Of course the goal is to top that number this year! Please go to www.christtabernacle.com for more information!
