Help support my kindergarten kiddos and allow them a fabulous Christmas this year!

I have the privilege of teaching the most amazing group of kindergartners. I work at a school on the southwest side of Chicago, in a low income community. All of my students receive free lunch and breakfast from school. As the holiday season has kicked into full swing, I am creating this fundraiser to help my kids experience a holiday unlike any before. I would love to provide my students with an amazing Christmas this year, and this is why I am asking for your help and support. Most of my students will receive Christmas gifts this year, but mostly things of necessity. It would be incredible to allow my students to feel the excitement and joy of this holiday season and give them each a gift they desire, not just need for survival. I am hoping to raise enough money to buy them each a Christmas gift they really want, such as a board game, book or action figure. My students are some of the most amazing, hard working, motivated and positive kids I have ever met. They would genuinely appreciate any gift they receive this holiday season, but I want to make sure they feel the extra excitement for a gift they truly want. My kids may not receive any “just for fun” gifts this year; however they truly deserve to. Most of us begin to feel the desire to help and donate during this time of the year, so please take some time and donate to make this year’s Christmas amazing for my students. I can already picture the smiles and excitement lighting up my students’ faces as I begin to think about this fundraiser becoming a reality. Your donation of any kind will be greatly appreciated by me, my students and their families.

Thank you for your support and participation in making this holiday season a truly remarkable one for my class.

With my deepest gratitude,

Mandi Cohen
