6th Annual School Supply Drive for Liberia

You gave these supplies to this Rogma Student.
Uniting Distant Stars is happy to announce our 6th Annual School Supply Drive in supporting three community primary schools in Liberia: Rogma International, City of Joy and Russ Wood Christian Academy. Last year, we discontinued collecting and sending supplies in the U.S. because of the exorbitant costs and constant delays from shipping Trans-Atlantic. We now buy the supplies in Liberia, which helps boost their economy, after recent stagnation by the Ebola Crisis. By donating as little as $10, you can help one student start the 2016/2017 school year with a smile.

You gave these supplies to this City of Joy Student.
We’re starting this year’s campaign with $650 from recent donations, which is almost 10% of our goal: $7,000. We are serving 700 students attending these three schools, so that equates to $10.00 per student. The families of these children are not able to provided these much needed supplies. Again, your generous gift  by cash, check or credit card will equip these young students with the supplies they need to be successful during the upcoming school year. Your contribution buys notebooks, pencils, pens, and much more.

As an added incentive, you will receive one of the following:
  • If you donate $100 or more, you will receive a hand-written Thank You letter from one student from any one of the three schools. 
  • If you donate $500 or more, you will receive three hand-written Thank You letters from one student from each school. 
Letters will be scanned and emailed during the months of September and October after the students receive their gifts of school supplies from you.
