Do you have a few bucks left on that Michael's or JoAnn's gift card or bits and pieces of leftover scrapbook stickers, stamps, paper, embelishments, etc. that you don't know what to do with? What about all those unsharpened pencils your kids collected from school parties or those left over die cuts you'll never use - or even new ones you'd like to make and donate?
I have a solution for you! Stop by Melody's blog and donate to at-risk 4th graders in California! Melody teaches at-risk 4th Graders to journal. It's a wonderful class she has for the kids - doing it year after year. It really makes a difference in a child's life to express themselves in a non-judgmental way - through ART.
Visit Melody here to see what her Bits & Pieces Art Program is all about. There is also a list of items she likes to provide in the journal packets (see them here) she gives to the students.
**Donations would like to be received by August 30th, but she accepts donations all year round. Sending your items in a flat rate box is a very economical way to go as well. She supplies her address on the post as well.
Stop by and take a look.....a child will appreciate anything you can send!
Thanks for stopping by.
