Helping Kids Has Mom Appeal!

front-page-logo.jpgBack in 2004, my husband and I watched a news story about a start up organization that was planning to distribute donated School Supply Kits to children in Iraq. The organization was called Operation Iraqi Children, and the founders were actor Gary Sinise and author Laura Hillenbrand. I thought the idea sounded terrific, so I put together 10 packages and sent them off to the warehouse in Kansas City. Our donation was in the second or third shipment overseas.

75+ shipments later, this project is still going strong. Since 2004 there has been a school supply drive for Katrina victims and there is currently a drive for urgently needed items such as shoes in Iraq. This is all in addition to the school supply kits that are steadily sent overseas for distribution.

With school supply sales just around the corner, I’m excited to start assembling another box of school supply packages to donate to this worthy cause. If you may have an interest in participating, check out the easy to follow assembly and shipping directions on the web site. 

Whether it’s this cause or another, helping kids has a lot of Mom Appeal!
