Let's not forget when we were little. The joy of opening a Christmas present, the excitement of playing with that crisp, brand new toy, the fun and joy when we shared it with our friends. Now it's our turn to share all that with underpriviledge children. So far we have not received any funds for this project. We have gathered information from some of the groups of children we will be helping this Christmas. We believe in this project. Having grown in the Dominican Republic, we are well aware of this need.
In a 2008 study of academic achievement for 3rd and 6th grade students in 16 Latin American countries, the Dominican Republic came in dead last in the areas of math, reading and science (dominicandream.org). We believe that toys can provide children with some of the skills necesary to perform better in class. This is very easy to do and can have such a big impact in these children's lives. With about $20 we can make a difference and put a smile in one child's face this year. Please help us.
