"Mind is a flexible mirror, adjust it, to see a better world" Amit Ray
Choose To Care(CTC)(choosetocaresite.org) was created in 2008 with the mission of protecting the feet of children and young adults in need at home and abroad; by placing a brand new pair of shoes on their feet and a smile on their faces.
CTC has committed to sponsor a public school each month through Donors Choose(donors choose.org). This is the nonprofit organization that allows teachers in public schools to submit classroom projects requesting resources for their students in need.We at CTC, truly believe that children should not have to scramble for the resources they need to help them strive. We are always looking to expand our mission because the need is so great.
For the month of November we are on our way to "A Mario Loiederman" middle school, Silver Springs, Maryland. Ms. Mackie, their teacher, submitted a project for her 6th - 8th graders, aptly named, "Tap those feet." She wants her students whom she described as being passionate about dancing, to learn tap techniques. She also wants each of them to have their own tap shoe; but coming from low-income households, it is difficult for families to afford such purchases.
CTC is honored to help make this happen. Although a pair of shoes will not solve the problems associated with poverty, it may just lead them on a more meaningful journey, keeping them in school, bringing them joy and pride, empowering them to become agents of change. I am sure your spring dance concert will be a blast and we will be cheering you and your students on in spirit.
We are filled with gratitude for our supporters. Let's do our part to protect planet earth! Each of us is able to give a helping hand to stop the erosion. While you are it, please try a delicious plant dish.This is a great contribution which over time will help to keep our planet fit!
Yours In Service!
