#FundraisingFriday is about featuring a fundraising campaign that is hosted here on Move Your Mountain. We will be highlighting their fundraising efforts and if you feel so inclined, please do share their campaign with your friends. (Because, we think they’re already pretty awesome, that’s why we’re sharing it with you!).
With the summer coming to an end, and the schools getting ready to handle the influx of students, Just For You Mom was inspired to help low-income students. Just For You Mom is a non-profit organization dedicated to providing inspirational tools and resources to empower, educate, and inspire women to achieve personal excellence in all areas of their life. When a local school principal made the statement, “We currently have 60 kids receiving food on Fridays to help them get through the weekend. If you could provide school supplies for these families, it would be greatly appreciated”, it wasn’t a question of IF they could help, it was HOW FAST can they help these kids get ready for school.
After working with the school district, two schools were identified with low-income children that needed this type of help. Their goal is to fill 160 brand new backpacks with school supplies and donate them to students in grades 1st-6th for this school year. The donation of $100 provides a BRAND NEW backpack complete with all the necessary school supplies to a low-income elementary school student. With the number of children that needed help in mind, the goal was set. Immediately, a crowdfunding campaign was launched on Move Your Mountain and the fundraising efforts started. Friends began sharing the campaign on their Facebook pages and Twitter. Just For You Mom keeps momentum going for their campaign page by updating it often with donations made and pictures of their progress. Overwhelming support for this campaign is felt and evident in the growing funds donated.
If you look at their campaign page HERE, you’ll be able to see all the amazing donors that have contributed to help these children have the supplies needed to have a great start to the school year. From individual contributors to amazing stores in the area, we are fortunate to have a community that reaches out and helps each other. Led by an amazing woman, Just For You Mom will not only change the lives of these 160 kids receiving backpacks, but will continue to inspire giving and hope throughout our community.
Thank you, Just For You Mom, for leading the way in giving, and inspiring us all to give back.
