Celebrate Children Day - April 14, 2010---A 24-Hour Online Giving Challenge


The Celebrate Children Foundation is sponsoring a one-day opportunity to support seven Wisconsin organizations--including the Wisconsin Council on Children and Families--involved in promoting the importance of the first five years in children's development. The first five years of life build the foundation for giving kids the best possible chance to thrive throughout their lives. On April 14, please visit the Celebrate Children Day website and make a one-time contribution to support this important cause.

How it Works
On Wed. April 14 go to the Celebrate Children Day website and make a single contribution. You can help even more by spreading the word via your own social networks.

All money raised will be split equally between seven organizations:

* Wisconsin Early Childhood Association
* Wisconsin Council on Children and Families
* Supporting Families Together Association
* Parents Plus, Inc.
* Wisconsin Alliance for Infant Mental Health
* Partnership for Wisconsin's Economic Success
* Celebrate Children Foundation

Our overall fundraising goal is $100,000. Several generous sponsors have agreed to match a portion of the money raised. If we reach our $100,000 goal, the "match" will add an additional $15,000 to the total.

Thank you for support and for your help in spreading the word about this opportunity to provide much needed resources to our efforts on behalf of young children in Wisconsin. Please help by forwarding this information to others interested in the well-being of young children across the state.

*Donations will be accepted beginning at 8:00 a.m. CST on April 14th, 2010.
