The 2018 hurricane season has been extraordinarily active in parts of the U.S., with Hurricane Florence currently impacting millions in the Carolinas. As this natural disaster unfolds, the staff here at VolunteerMatch is doing its part to ensure that, if you are in an affected community, you are prepared and safe. And if you are looking to help with disaster relief efforts, you know about the most effective ways to contribute.
We are a new foundation who's mission it is to give children a better start in life by better preparing new parents and parents-to-be for the challenges ahead.
We will educate participants about the early psychological and physical needs of their new baby through online and onsite workshops taught by certified volunteers from across the nation. These classes will cover the basic and necessary information that is most important in the developmental stages of the first years, and include tests to certify that the participants have absorbed this essential information. It is our intention that successful graduates of this 6-9 week program will be issued 'The Fishing Rod Credit Card' that will allow them very significant discounts on clothes, toys, food and other baby needs, thus providing incentive to successfully complete the course.
