We want every child to get The Basics.
But we need your help to reach them.
We still believe that every child deserves the best chance for a good start in life. We hope our community is indeed turning the corner on the COVID-19 pandemic , but we fear that the disruption it's caused will widen the gap for children in our community.
We have a tool we know will help parents — but we need your help to reach as many of them as we can.
Basics Insights is a twice-a-week text messaging program that sends direct to parents' phone advice about what they can do — right now — to build their child's brain. We are working to share this resource with parents, but we can't do it alone. Our goal is $15,000 to match the $15,000 we've already raised toward enrolling every child born in this county in this program, founded by Harvard economist Dr. Ronald Ferguson. A gift of $25 covers the cost of enrolling four children. Please help if you can.
