I just love middle school age kids.............

Another way to "pay it forward"  PROJECT KIDS.

You know how important it is to pay it forward! Well, a blog I follow called Saturday Mornings is having a fundraiser.

Dana’s friend Nicole ( a middle school teacher ) has a small group of seventh grade children who are struggling with basic reading and writing skills, and a ton of pressure has been put on them to pass benchmark exams this spring. Nicolle has been working diligently with this group and they are making progress little by little. When she asked them what they would like as a reward after testing is complete, all they wanted was a treat from Sonic. That's a big deal to them. They come from environments where they are given no help studying, little encouragement, and a meal from Sonic is like a dream come true.

I worked with at risk kids for a few years where we provided afterschool opportunites for studying, sports and just a safe place to hang out so this project is very close to The Olde Baggs heart.

Anyone who signs up for an ad spot (or extend a spot already in place) with them will be helping out PROJECT KIDS! Until a notice is up on top of the page that the campaign is over, 100% of proceeds will go towards this fundraiser.

Each person donating will also receive a personalized letter from the kids they help.

I thought I’d throw this out there for any one that might have a shop to promote or a blog you may want to advertise. It’s a great way to do some good along with it : )

I will have an ad for CELEBRATE OZ running on Saturday Mornings blog site from Feb. 20 until the event begins March 19, in hopes that more folks will want to come out and play. I just love a "win, win" situation. How about you?
