You Deserve a Cookie: Operation International Children

You Deserve a Cookie:  Operation International Children

Thanks to all your excellent efforts 24 school supply kits were sent to children around the globe.  I appreciate your help in donating these important items so children may learn and grow.  The friends of Pointe Viven are awesome.

Operation International Children

Actor Gary Sinise (Forrest Gump, Apollo 13) and author Laura Hillenbrand (Seabiscuit: An American Legend) launched Operation International Children, a program that enables American students to send School Supply Kits to other students around the world. Kept in one-room buildings without air conditioning, fans, heaters, windows, solid floors, or even toilets, students lack the basic supplies that American children take for granted. Libraries and books are almost nonexistent. Without these basic tools of education, children face an uphill struggle to learn. "Imagine sending your child to a school in which there are virtually no books, no pencils, no paper, no blackboards," says Hillenbrand. This is the reality for many children. The need for help is so great and widespread, for some 1,500 schools.

Please keep supporting Operation International Children
