I have a friend (two actually) who would have a child in Kindergarten, but instead, they mourn the loss of their would be 5 year old and watch as their friends prepare their Kindergartener's for their first year of school.
So, in memory of my friend, Sarah's, sweet daughter, Grace, who never took in a breath, she is asking that as you go school shopping this year, that you might buy a backpack full of supplies for a child who can't afford it.
You can read more about Grace's backpack project here.
I think this is fantastic. In 5 years, when Olivia would be starting school, you just might see that I will be asking the same of you.
