Multicultural Crayons for Kids, Lee County FL

Racial injustice has brought things to light that were there but so many of us didn’t see it ourselves so we just didn’t understand. From all of the ugliness and hate some beautiful things have come to the light.  Like many ideas, friends start talking and something amazing evolves.


Teaching diversity doesn’t always happen at home our teachers need help with this every day. This fundraiser is to help teach diversity and inclusion to our school age children and help foster a greater sense of belonging and acceptance. 

 

Lee County Florida is a wonderful place to live but has also seen its share of racial injustice and separation.  Now is the time to make an impact at our local schools and begin teaching this early on. Our first goal is to supply each classroom with 3 packs of Multicultural Crayons per classroom (Colors of the World Skin Tone Crayons, Crayola). After that, we will spread the gift to other schools districts.

$3.00  each pack x 45 classrooms = $450 per school. (approx. $10 per classroom)
Elementary, ESE and special needs schools 63 x $450 = $28,350

This is a huge goal but we are sure that together we can do it.  If we fall short of our goal, we can choose schools with greatest need based on diversity.

Please make a donation today. Help support positive identity image for our children and let them know they are included.

Donate a $10 gift to support one classroom or $450 for one school.

You can make a difference today!!

Please donate and please share with other socially conscious friends.

 

Huge thank you in advance for making everyone feel included and important.
