Will you help a homeless child today?

If I told you there was an easy, small thing you can do today that will make a big difference to a homeless family, would you do it?
Have you ever noticed Box Top for Education on grocery items? Last year, my children’s school community collected $100 in Box Tops during the month of November and donated them to First Place School. This year I'd like to raise 10 times that amount.

1 in 50 US children are homeless.

First Place School is a wrap-around school for homeless children and their families. First Place makes a big difference in the lives of Seattle's homeless children by providing education, meals and services to their parents to help them get off the street and into a home of their own.

It's easy to help.

It couldn’t be simpler. You probably already have box tops on items in your cupboards. Tear them off and send them in to the address below.

Share this challenge with your friends.

If you’re active on Facebook or Twitter, please take the extra step to share this with your friends. Or share it in an email. An anonymous donor will match the total value of Box Tops mailed in through the end of this year.
Let’s leverage the power of our shared networks to make a big difference in the lives of homeless children by something as simple as tearing off a box top.
Thank you.
