"Christmas 2013: Project HOPE

Have you ever wondered where children living in shelters go during the day? Where do they learn? Where do they play? Bright Beginnings Preschool, located in Washington, DC provides a nurturing, developmentally-appropriate childcare for homeless infants, toddlers and preschoolers helps them reach important childhood milestones, while they help their parents to end their homelessness.

We are asking for your help:  
The Holiday Stocking Brigade begins November 27, 2013 and runs through December 20, 2013. You can participate by donating the items listed below from your business. All contributions are tax-deductible and will be utilized to make a child’s Christmas more magical.
Our goal is to provide gifts/stockings to the 93 homeless children this Christmas. The kids range from infant to age 5.  We appreciate your kindness and generosity in supporting our goal.

Currently, 73 children still need sponsorship for the Holidays, $15 as a Secret Santa for a little boy/girl (updated 12/09/2013)"

EIN available for tax-deduction, Paypal accepted.

Does anyone yet have advice in this regard?
