200 backpacks

we met with the principle at Cypress Elementary school downtown . . . she has an amazing heart for the students in her school . . . we're joining with the school to show God's love to these kids in the most creative ways . . .

here are some of our ideas . . . design a school shirt for the kids . . . sand the bleachers . . . paint the halls . . . create short videos for assemblies . . . provide clothes and socks . . . pizza parties for classrooms . . . and this is just the beginning . . .

this is such an amazing opportunity for us to move into the community and put God's love on display . . .

over the next 6 weeks, our goal is to purchase and fill at least 200 backpacks for kids in this coming fall . . . we'll fill these backpacks with socks and toothbrushes and school supplies and backpack kind of stuff . . .

in fact, Ava and I are going out shopping this week to buy our backpack for a kid . . . Transformers . . . because every kid deserves a Transformers backpack . . .

I think this is so awesome! I can't wait to see the effect that it's going to have on the school and our community!

P.S. My name is "M-o-s-e-l-e-y" not "Mosley" I would appreciate it if y'all would correct that in the list of bloggers. Thanks!
