Hello May! We thought we’d let you know that May is National Foster Care Awareness month and we invite you to partake in this month-long celebration with us as we support One Simple Wish, a fantastic local organization that will be headed out today on a 30 day journey of 4000 miles through the United States stopping in 30 cities to grant 30 wishes to foster kids.
One Simple Wish was founded by Danielle Gletow who witnessed firsthand the troubles children in the foster care system meet. “After becoming a foster parent in 2006 and witnessing firsthand the struggles faced by children in the system, I decided I needed to create a simple way for more people to support children in foster care in direct and personal ways” said Gletow.
If you’re wondering how you can help take part of this incredible month-long event, then consider donations, becoming a volunteer or an advocate. Danielle needs us to get involved in any way possible. She says, “The Princeton community can make a difference by visiting our website and making a simple wish come true for one of the children we support. It’s so simple to do and can cost as little as $10. We encourage school groups, churches and others to also get together and try to collect funds to grant a bigger wish together.”
“Our organization has granted over 2500 wishes thanks to our amazing contributors and works with over 70 volunteers in the community,” said Gletow. Become a part of those making a difference and visit the event’s website to learn more about it and what you can do to help at http://www.303030.org
