Herald Guide’s $1 Children's Christmas Fund
A new holiday tradition to warm your heart ... from now on
We call it the "$1 Children's Fund" because we want every child in the parish to have the chance to participate equally in a community-wide act of love and caring during this most sacred time of year.
And to up the ante on the giving, the Herald-Guide will match those contributions dollar for dollar.
When all is said and done, every boy and girl - rich, poor and in between - will know deep down inside that the $1 he or she contributed to the fund was just as big and made exactly the same impact as the $1 sent in by every other child.
Are we going to collect millions? Not a chance.
But we believe that no number of millions could compare with the awesome power of these $1 gifts.
In our view, they will be transformative, not just for the needy families and children who share them, but in the hearts of the kids who send them in.
And when we say every child is welcome to participate, that's exactly what we mean - from the "wee little ones" with sticky nickels and dimes shaken from a plastic piggy bank to teenagers with big allowances and part-time jobs and hundreds or even thousands in the bank.
Simply send $1 to the Herald-Guide's $1 Children's Fund - mom’s or dad’s check or money order is fine. All children under the age of 18 who send in $1 will get credit and see their names in the Herald-Guide.
Or you can drop off the money at our offices on Hwy 90 in Boutte - we'll have a sealed box in our lobby waiting for you.
Contributions will be distributed before Christmas to various charities in St. Charles Parish. Parents and adults who’d like to contribute larger amounts are welcome.
