Two years ago, Fairytale Brownies team members, along with 200 other community volunteers, built a playground for the students attending Children First Academy of Tempe. It took us 10 months to raise $80,000 and just one day provide a safe place for them to play.
We felt such joy when the playground was complete! Knowing that the children came from homeless and underprivileged homes made our accomplishment even sweeter.
On Wednesday, March 20, Arizonans will have the opportunity to give to their favorite nonprofits as part of Arizona Gives Day, and make a difference in the community.
Arizona Gives Day is a one-day (24-hour) statewide, online movement. Donations can be made starting at 12:01 a.m. Wednesday on www.azgives.org.
Simply find the Arizona nonprofit you would like to donate to and click the green "Donate" button on the right side of the organization's page.
I believe all children should have the opportunity to play, laugh and act like the little kids that they are. Because I'm a little partial to Children First Academy of Tempe, their organization will receive my support.
There are many Arizona nonprofits in need of your support. Please take a moment to find your favorite interest and make your donation.
