As we are approaching the season of giving let's get into the attitude of gratitude! It is time to be wholly grateful for all that we have and all that is yet to come. We, at EOC, have so much to be thankful for. But we're especially thankful for all of the kind spirits who contribute their love and knowledge to the youth. If you have the opportunity to make a positive impact in the life of a child, take it! Every little gesture and thought counts and will never be forgotten.
#GivingTuesday is known to be the global movement of generosity. On December 3rd, 2019, people from all across the world will gather with a similar mission in mind; to give back. It all started in the year 2012, with the mission to separate one full day dedicated to giving back to others. This grand movement encourages us to get up off of our feet and get involved with our own community. Find out what's happening near you and be a part of the movement!
In the coming months, Educators On Call and Tutors On Call will begin collecting donations in celebration of our 7th Annual Book Drive and Children's Book Week in collaboration with Treehouse Books. You can join in on the #GivingTuesday movement by making a monetary donation in support of the book drive here. The gift of reading is one of the most precious things you can give to a child. Reading holds the power of growth and imagination. It is an unforgettable spark that ignites their desire to learn! Give back, this season, by donating whatever you can to help spark the fire that can change the world.
"Any book that helps a child to form a habit of reading, to make reading one of his needs, is good for him." — Maya Angelou
