I am so happy my fellow blogger friend Mrs. Weber's Neighborhood told me about this cause. Operation: Kid Equip is a Michigan based program which is trying to raise funds to get books in the hands of homeless children. Their goal is to raise $15,000 by August. Did you know that there are 31,000 homeless children in the state of Michigan?
The stats on the site are very eye-opening. I had no idea there were so many children in the Kent County area! Even if you don't have the funds to donate, please spread the word as much as you can!
Here are ways to help:
Help provide books to all of #Michigan’s homeless students with @OKE_News here: http://bit.ly/L1SHhu #OKEBooks
Or simply spread the word on Facebook. Every little bit helps!
