2017 has just flown by. It’s hard to believe Christmas is a week away already with New Year’s Eve not far behind. So let’s talk end-of-the-year giving. There are many different organizations and causes to donate to, especially this time of year. Whether it’s holiday-themed giving or to a cause you’re passionate about, I hope you consider making a difference in someone’s life. Since you know we love Goldfish Swim School, I wanted to tell you about their Sweet Dreams & Stories project.
The Dublin and Westerville locations of Goldfish have teamed up to provide pajamas and hard cover books to kids who may not have access to these things at home. They’re working with Brightside Academy and Run The Race/Brian Muha Memorial Foundation. Both of these organizations serve at-risk children on the west side and inner city of Columbus. So how can you help?
From now until December 21, both locations will be collecting donations. They are looking for:
- a new pair of pajamas for children ages 3 months to 12 years
- a hard cover or chapter book for children ages 3 months to 10 years
Their goal is to provide pajamas and books for each of the 50 kids at Brightside Academy with a surplus that can be donated to the Muha Foundation.
Not only is this a great way to give back, but it’s something fun you can do with your kids. Liam always enjoys helping me pick out books for gifts and it was also really good lesson on being generous too.
