)-- JNP is working to "Empower a Child for the Holidays by Giving the Gift of Self-Esteem! (Inner-Awesome Superpowers)” - With support from the local Community, JNP will gift every fourth grader in Anne Arundel County’s Public Schools - 6,147 of them. In addition, JNP’s non-profit partner Let’s Help Kids (.org) will receive 10% of the Campaign proceeds to make wishes come true for more local County kids. http://thejnpproject.com/2015-gift-kids-self-esteem/
Just launched October 15, 2015, JNP’s aggressive goal for December 15, 2015, is to gain sponsorship and donations to enable 6,147 fourth graders to receive the gift of self-esteem—the tools to help them discover their inner-awesome superpowers—character, courage, and confidence. The JNP Project is working in conjunction with the Anne Arundel County (AAC) Board of Education to organize and deliver the gifts. A a tax-free donation of $50 for each superpower backpack will go to one student – the gift will include: 1 cinch pack; 3 books, Jane & Jake’s Adventures to Awesome, Prequel, Truth, and Kindness; 1 empowerment water bottle; and 1 bookmark.
Local community organizations and corporations with Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) are being targeted to support sponsorship, as this Campaign is a trifecta-win for the child receiving the gifting superpower backpack; for the “make a wish” child having his/her wish come true; and, for the organization/corporation sponsoring the gifts.
The JNP Project has been working on bullying prevention locally, and teaching kids how to discover their inner-awesome superpowers. Ultimately, they are learning and understanding the power of: I AM. I CAN. I WILL. EMPOWERED. TM This is what one of the teachers had to say bout JNP:
"Girls Breaking Boundaries has benefited greatly from The JNP Project. Just one year ago, the girls of Girls Breaking Boundaries were shy, soft-spoken girls. Those girls are now speaking up and speaking out, and, undoubtedly, Dona and The JNP Project have been pivotal in this growth. The girls look forward to Dona’s visits, as she is a positive force in shaping who they are becoming. She shares the themes of truth and kindness though The JNP books, guiding the girls to develop a strong sense of self. And with new Girls Breaking Boundaries members this year, I am excited to see their growth with Dona’s support and proud that current members will mentor the new ones."
