The Brooke Jackman Foundation has been able to create and support literacy enhancing programs that have helped thousands of children in the New York City area. Our purpose is to provide every single child a life full of possibilities. We want to thank our volunteers, supporters, partners, family and friends that have helped us, and continue to help us, accomplish our mission.
This #GivingTuesday we will be fundraising to provide children in need with Brooke Packs full of school supplies. This year Facebook and PayPal are matching donations on Facebook for a total of up to $7 million dollars. We encourage you to participate by sharing with your family and friends to create awareness for children literacy. You can also create a Facebook Fundraiser on behalf of the Brooke Jackman Foundation to help raise donations for our initiative. Help us raise $5,000 by December 31st to provide Brooke Packs to children this holiday season!
Since 2002, BJF has distributed more than 30,000 Brooke Packs (backpacks filled with books, pens, pencils, erasers, rulers and other school supplies) to underprivileged children in the New York City Metropolitan area and beyond. They are designed to meet the needs of disadvantaged children when other resources are not available. Each one is filled with brand new, age-appropriate books, school supplies and notebooks. Many times, this backpack is their sole personal possession.
#GivingTuesday is a global day of giving fueled by YOU! It provides the perfect time to reflect upon all that we’ve accomplished as a Foundation and gives us an opportunity to grow and ensure progress in the years to come.
