You don’t have to have a lot to give a little: A Few Back to School Charity Initiatives

“The best way to find yourself is to lose yourself in the service of others.” ― Mahatma Gandhi

Giving back is a huge thing to me. I am by no means rich but I don’t allow that to prevent me from helping others who are less fortunate.

It’s almost back to school time & a few organizations I am affiliated with are doing their best to help a number of children go back to school in September. Check out the flyers & contribute wherever you can.

  1. The Kingston & St. Andrew Baptist Association Youth Arm is currently collecting items to donate to the 9 Early Childhood Institutions which are affiliated with churches within Kingston & St. Andrew.


If you would like to contribute to this cause check out KSABAYA’s Facebook page here.


2. The Rotaract Club of New Kingston & the Rotaract Club of May Pen have partnered to donate books & stationery to 500 children in children’s homes & schools in their areas.


If you would like to contribute to this cause contact Director Patrick or President Annette.


3. The Rotaract Club of Savanna-La-Mar will be donating stationery & dictionaries to students in their community & all you have to do is contribute $100 to make this possible.


If you would like to contribute to this cause contact their Facebook page here.


4. The Rotaract Club of Kingston will this year be donating stationery & backpacks to Primary & Secondary students in Rural St. Andrew communities.

Their Back to School Drive runs from August 1st to September 5th, 2016. If you are in the Mandeville area feel free to donate.



In October, they will be hosting a Black Tie Charity Gala in aid of assisting 4 year old stage 4 cancer patient Tiana who is in urgent need of medical care. If you can’t attend the event feel free to make a contribution to Tiana on her Go Fund Me page here.
