paper and pencils for a cause

Paper and Pencils for a Cause is an advocacy project started by mommy blogger PinayJade. She is giving back to her hometome in Narra, Palawan by doing something extra nice for the kids of the Estrella Village Elementary School. She hopes to give them gifts that they can use for school. There are 186 students in this school.

Here are the items they need:
  • Paper/ Notebooks
  • Pencils/ Pens
  • Picture books for Pre-schoolers
  • Elementary books
  • School bags / any bags that can be used for this purpose (doesn’t need to be new as long as it’s usable)
  • Chalk
  • Blackboard Eraser
  • Crayons
  • Children's  scissors
  • Pencil sharpeners
  • Markers
  • Working Computers

You can help Paper and Pencils for a Cause by:

1. Sending paper, pencils, pens and other school supplies. You can also send your unwanted but usable supplies like bags, pens, notepads etc. Your not only helping the children but you are also helping the planet by letting somebody else use what you cannot use.

2. Spreading the word about this cause. You can blog about this, share it on your Facebook wall/ page. and/or twitter. You can also add the banner above to your blog sidebar.

3. Send financial donations. Your donation would make a huge difference in their education and their lives. The money that we will receive will be used to buy new supplies and to cover the shipping cost of the supplies to the schools. If there is some extra money left, we will do a feeding program as well for the little ones.

Just a few dollars will go a long way in helping these children. You can send your donation to paypal id jade.samson (at) ymail (dot) com. For more information, check out their Facebook page.
