Ditch the Coffee and Give a Kid a Strong Start
A child's earliest experiences, before they even enter school, can determing their ability to succeed for the rest of their lives. Access to quality education is vital to improving their health and promoting their development and learning in the future.
Forgoing your $5 cup of coffee everyday for a week and donating that money can provide 3 nights of safe shelter for a family fleeing domestic violence. Passing on a night out at the movies and instead donating that $25 you would have spent on tickets can send 450 books in nearly 60 languages to children from low-income families.
