Help Fight Hunger!

Help Fight Hunger
1 in 5 children in America struggle with hunger, and when school lets out for the summer millions of children might not know where their next meal will come from. Many children depend on the breakfast/lunch received at school and others depend on weekend nourishments from the backpack buddy program offered to many schools for their students, provided by churches and other civic groups in their area coming together to meet nutritional/hunger needs.

In June, July and August help support those in need by purchasing the Classic Round-Up from the Heart® Trivets.
$2 from each $5 Trivet purchased will be contributed to Feeding America® to help provide meals to those in need. 4 of the $5 trivets = $8 to Feeding America = 72 meals being provided through the local food banks.

The trivets make beautiful wall art/decor for the kitchen, nice gifts for any occasion, and are the perfect protection for the countertop or table for your hot dishes. You can order from my website or inbox me. , if local to me, this link the items can be shipped to the host/which the order will come to my house & I can get imageyour order to you.

If not local to me, you can use the same link but be sure to click the tab to have shipped to your address. If in doubt about shipping to your address through the online show, you can inbox me or type in the URL, to place an individual order, not part of a show order, which will automatically ship to your home.

Remember, the food bank in your own backyard/county will be depleted during the summer months with all meals-breakfast, lunch, and dinner- dependent on the food banks because schools are not supplying the children their first two meals of the day. By placing the individual order if you’re outside Lenoir County, the money will go to the Feeding America Food Bank in your county! Order as many as you would like of any or all the trivets to help the children have sufficient food this summer!

Cool and Unique?

“Children are made readers on the laps of their parents.” — Emilie Buchwald

Children, who are read to, allowed to experience books as babies, toddlers, and preschoolers normally love to read. My grandchildren love books. I believe in part it is because the oldest looked at books and thought she was highlighting books when her Mom was in nursing school, reading, reading, and reading. She and her husband also read to her. The youngest is now 4 looking at books because she sees her older sister, 7, reading all the time–books and downloads from her Kindle.  A seven year old reading on a 5th and 6th grade level is pretty amazing to me. Reading introduced at an early age can introduce children to a world of knowledge. The more you read, the more you will know, and the more you know, the further you will go.

You will surely find books your child will love to read.
