Charlene and Bev packing kits for distribution! However, we need to raise more funds to buy 3000 teddy bears which are still needed to complete the Grandpa Super Bear Kits. These kits will be handed out free of charge to schools and children hospitals in the impoverished and underserved areas of the Western & Southern Cape. Each kit consists of an educational story book, a colouring book, a box of crayons and a teddy bear. We have since 2013 already distributed almost 2000 kits in the isiXhosa language and we are now preparing to distribute the Afrikaans version of this amazing children's story book.
Our objective is to incite a culture of reading between parents and children as the book aims to reinforce family values while boosting self-esteem and self-image. Alas, we are short of funds to buy the teddy bears which is why we are reaching out to you to partner with us on this children's literacy project.
The cost per teddy bear is: $5 / 43.85 SEK / 26,21 ZAR. Your donation will bring joy to the lives of many children. As we say at A Reaching Hand "A drop of rain is insignificant, but together we can make a river"!
Go to our Donate Page or press the "Donate Button" on the Education Page, should you wish to donate some teddies. Use GSB Teddy as a reference.
We Thank You!
Karin, Charlene, Bev and Louise.
