When you think of colors, what pops into your mind? Joseph’s coat of many colors, quilts, kaleidoscopes, rainbows, fall leaves? God has given us such an amazing range of colors with varying hues and shades. There is no limit to what can be done with the right color combinations.
Think about all the ways that color enhances your life. Could you imagine how drab life would be without color? Now imagine how boring learning would be without color. Just as color enhances our everyday life, how much more can it add excitement to learning?!
This is why Blessing the Children is seeking out people who would be willing to help us add a splash of color and dash of excitement for the children at the BCI Academy in Debre Zeyit, Ethiopia by donating for dry erase markers. We would love to be able to share many colors with the teachers to enhance the learning process of our children in grades Preschool – 8.
This may seem like such a simple need, a small need. But when you take into account the high cost of dry erase markers (around $1/marker) and the amount used for an entire school, this adds up to around $720/year spent on dry erase markers alone.
We have an amazing opportunity right now because representatives from the Blessing the Children U.S., Canadian and Australian offices will be traveling to Ethiopia November 1st so if we can collect a full year’s supply of dry erase markers, we can save on shipping costs to Ethiopia by sending the markers direct! Can we fundraise 720 markers in two weeks!?
Would you consider making a donation whether it be monetary, sending a package of markers to one of the offices or even ordering them online (Amazon.com, Staples.com, etc.) and having them sent to one of the offices?
It seems so simple but a single package of dry erase markers can bring excitement to a classroom for weeks! Would you consider sending a splash of color to Ethiopia?
