Borderless Charity has been such a blessing to local schools~ they have provided cash grants to middle & high schools~bookbags full of supplies needed by the older students ~art supplies for the middle~high school classes, they have provided new & gently used clothing~coats~toys~books~bookbags & tons of supplies~provided holiday celebrations for each holiday for the Pre-K~K5 & 1st grade school. They have made sure all children are able to attend the field trips by paying for the entire group. They have provided tees for the students to wear on their field trips. Their son who is just 5 was so saddened to see so many children w/o basics like crayons to use in class & at home ~that he did a fundraiser through BCI & raised enough money & crayons to provide every class & every K5 student with their own box of crayons for home & school. They have partnered with an ARMY unit stationed in IRAQ to provide an ICE CREAM party for a local K5 school. The end of school year they also made sure every child at the local school had a picture to share with loved ones that they GRADUATED from K5. They are an AMAZING charity that truly cares about kids, our troops, homeless families & vets, women's abuse shelter clients & the list goes on and on. All of their staff are volunteers making every dollar raised going right into the initiative at hand.
BCI~ is a brand new 501(c)3 non-profit in Washington, NC. They made their debut in November w/ a Christmas toy drive for James & Connie Maynard Children's hospital ~Greenville, NC. With amazing success they were able to deliver the first week of December~ they followed with spreading Christmas love to Ruth's House. (a battered woman's shelter in Washington). One of the most rewarding moments of the volunteers lives when the shelter called with homemade cookies baked by a client & child as gratitude. Now they are working on #Operation Snowflake~ Feb. 11th delivering "warm bags" to Washington DC homeless families. New blankets, hats, mittens, socks, personal hygiene items along with Valentines cards from the founder's small children. Their son wanted to give each person a valentine~ so "they know people love them too". We could all take a lesson from this little one. (other projects they have done was feeding victims of Hurricane Matthew & shoes delivered by a member to school children in a small village in the Philippines) I can't wait to see the next act of love & kindness from this amazing non-profit.
