So this fall we are launching our "Tools for School" initiative to provide school supplies to children in Sierra Leone. Our goal is to collect, package and distribute 50-100 school kits. I know! Huge undertaking. But we can do it. We are so excited to be able to provide this kind of support. Many families in Sierra Leone struggle to gather funds to send their kids to school, and when they are able to scrape the money together getting them the tools they need (uniforms, pens, pencils etc.) becomes an additional burden.
So how can you help? You can help by: 1. DONATING SUPPLIES TO FILL KITS Collect unused crayons, markers, or any item on the list below, and mail them to this address: The Visão Foundation, P.O Box 263, Larchmont, NY 10538. WHAT THEY NEED
12" Plastic Rulers
24 Pack Crayons
Black & Blue Pens
Washable 8 Color Paint Sets
2. MAKE A MONETARY DONATION Any interested individuals who would like to support this project but don't have the time to go out and shop for the supplies, can easily make a paltry donation of $15.00 to fund ONE kit for a child in Sierra Leone.
Thanks for reading this post, and let's spread the word and get children in Sierra Leone the tools they need to succeed!
