EMpowerME Packs - Books for Foster Kids

The number of children in foster care continues to increase. Most of these children arrive to their foster families with few belongings, often in a grocery sack or trash bag. A gift of BOOKS can give much needed hope and physical tools the need during such a difficult time.

Books can sometimes be an escape from reality, but also, great books can be a shortcut to a better life and encourage EVERY child to discover their greatest potential.

THANK YOU for wanting to be part of this critical and huge project. We are partnering with dozens of organizations across the US with the goal of reaching every possible foster kid with the gift of an EMpowerME Pack - $50 in high quality Usborne & Kane Miller books that focus on fueling their knowledge and wellness. Thanks to the 50% match by Usborne Books & More, the cost is just $35 to sponsor a foster kid to receive their EMpowerME pack!

The goal of THIS specific book drive is to reach foster kids through Omni Inventive Care, KVC and Cedars in Lincoln, NE. Can you help us reach this goal of reaching these deserving kids?

*$35 sponsors 1 foster kid, $105 sponsors 3 foster kids, all donations are appreciated.

Books bring comfort, companionship, education, therapy and escape . . . and they tell a child "YES, you are worthy, smart, gifted, unique, and there is a whole world of opportunity waiting for YOU."
