2013 Bright Minds with Bright Futures Bookbag Giveaway is underway.

Why do we need $4000
We are trying to raise $4000 so we can purchase 600 bookbags for our 5th Annual Bright Minds with Bright Futures Bookbag Giveaway.

E.L.O.G.'s annual Bright Minds with Bright Futures Bookbag Giveaway was created to assist disadvantaged families in the area by providing basic essentials (bookbags & school supplies) for kids heading back to school in September. Additionally, this event allows E.L.O.G. the opportunity to mentor to kids and promote the importance of obtaining an education, while also working to close the achievement gap that we noticed in our communities. E.L.O.G believes children in the inner city do not have all the same resources as someone who lives in a suburb might have and this advantage is an achievement gap.

Each year our book bag giveaway has grown. In 2010, our goal was to giveaway 50 bookbags. Unfortunately, we fell short of 50 but we were able to giveaway almost 40 bookbags. In 2011, we set another goal of 50 bookbags and this time we surpassed our expectations and we blessed over 80 kids with new bookbags. Last year, our goal was to give away 100 bookbags and I am proud to say that we shattered that goal. When all was said and done we gave away 188 bookbags. This year, E.L.O.G. gave away close to 400 bookbags filled with school supplies to disadvantaged youth in Maryland this exceeded their original goal of 200 bookbags.
