Foster Kids School Supply Drive

I heard an ad this morning on the radio for Mattress Firm’s school supply drive for foster kids.  I was just driving along, halfway listening, when then they featured kids in the ad talking about their need for school supplies and I was heartbroken for them! 
One of the kids said “I feel bad asking for paper.”  Really?  Isn’t that heartbreaking?  A child that already thinks the world (or at least his parents) don’t love him enough to keep him, then he feels bad for asking for school supplies to further his education?  Can you imagine how he feels asking for soap or shoes or new clothes or Christmas presents?  OR ALL OF THOSE THINGS?  Can you imagine growing up in a group home and not having enough?  Not having self-esteem?  That is so sad!  We should be empowering these children to make their life better and get out of the cycle that led their parents to give them up.

Please join me in collecting school supplies for foster children!  You can drop them off at any Mattress Firm location in the area (I think it’s more than just Houston). 
 Or you can donate online if you don’t want to go out and buy them.
