Hi, I am Parisa and I am a member of the 2018 Teen Leadership Corps for Cradles to Crayons Philadelphia. Cradles to Crayons is a non-profit organization providing children from birth to age 12 with everyday essentials that they need to thrive, succeed, and be happy ☺ . By donating time, items, or money, you can make a difference in a child’s life. With only $33, you can provide a child in need with a “kid-pack”, filled with a clean pair of shoes, a week’s worth of outfits, five books, toys, and, depending on availability, underwear, socks, pajamas, and other extras.
