Little Girls...Dreams came true!











Yesterday was so awesome! I usually don't start off my post like that-but it was! Little Girls, Big Dreams is a group of girls in Pontiac Michigan (my home town) that are in an after-school literacy project. Natania Swirski is the developer of this non-profit 501 3 (C) group and she donates tons of time to these girls to make sure that they can achieve their dreams by being achievers in reading, writing ,etc. Natania and I began collaborating in the Fall to give the girls a bit of an reward for being so dedicated to their own education.
The business community in Michigan came to these girls aid in the fall by donating my books to the girls to encourage them. This holiday season I solicited donations from many businesses and used the power of social media to give these girls a bit more.
Donations were:
modeling clay
floor pads of paper
bubble gum
100% Real Books (Who I Am series)
BooksByTara (Tara McClintick books)
Pencils
colored pencils
pencil bags
notebooks
journals
candy canes
rulers
A big thank you to:
Gardner White Furniture
Barb Tronstein
Tara McClintick
Stephanie Lewis
Cathy Lewis
Access Pointe Human Resources
Black Women In Business Brainstorm
My Busykits
These girls smiles are bigger and brighter because of you! A confession-I have not even started my holiday shopping yet-but this is the way of truly kicking off the season with a bang!
Read something great!
