It is Giving Tuesday and this movement is just about on everyone's radar and my wish is that it will inspire many to participate and make an impact in giving a helping hand to others, globally. So many have been affected by disease,natural disaster,violence, poverty and so many other crises.
Choose To Care(CTC) the organization that was created to provide a brand new pair of shoes for the child in need, is ready to meet its obligation to sponsor a public school teacher's request for
resources for their students. This sponsorship is done through Donors Choose, an organization founded in 2000 by a High School teacher in the Bronx, NY. The aim is to empower public school teachers nationwide to ask for greatly needed materials for their students.
CTC's journey for the month of December, started on this special day, dubbed Giving Tuesday and has taken us to Livingston Junior High School, located in Livingson, Alabama. This is where Ms. F. Sharp, the caring teacher of 6th and 8th graders has requested uniform shoes for her students. "Shoes with a little bling, please" is her catchy title. "Help me give my students shoes that will help motivate them and improve their self-esteem"
We are set to double the bling and make a difference. We also know that a pair of shoes in a time of need is much more than shoes to protect the feet. It is hope, It is dignity, and it certainly shows that someone cares. Today, as our mission commands, we are practicing generosity so that these children will walk in hope.
As always, our gratitude for your support, that has allowed us to continue our work. Don't forget to do your part to keep mother earth green. It is a responsibility we must all share.
May your holiday season be one of PEACE, LOVE AND GOOD HEALTH
