Event description

Description

We're hosting a crafty fundraising for Get on the Bus a program that unites children with their parents in prison for Mothers' and Fathers' Day We are raising funds for 57 Bay Area children to visit their fathers this June and we need your help.


You're invited to an afternoon of fun and creativity! We will make cute cards for you to take home and then assemble cards for the kids to stay connected with their fathers.


For you:

Relax and let your creativity flow as we create 4 super-cute cards to have on hand for upcoming bithdays, holidays and other card-sending occasions. We'll provide all the stamps, ink, paper and other supplies you will need to create your cards. You will go home with four beautiful cards created by you!


For the kids:

We are preparing packs of notecards and stamps to give to each of the 57 children signed up to ride on our bus. This is part of a "Stay Connected Kit" that each child receives on the bus ride home. Each kit will contain the set of notecards for the children to write to their parent throughout the rest of the year as well as a teddy bear from the child's father.


Frequently Asked Questions:

I can't make it to the event, how can I participate?

With your $25 donation, we will put together a "Stay Connected Kit" on your behalf. Choose the "Sponsor a child" link above for instructions on how to pay by cash or check.

What else can I do to help?

We have already secured donations of all the paper-crafting supplies we'll need to make the note-card sets, but we still need a teddy bear (between 10"-12") and book of forever stamps for each participant (57 teddy bears is a lot of bears!).
