According to the National Retail Federation, the average family spends almost $700 on children’s clothing, electronics, and back to school supplies each year. Back to school time can be a burden on many low income families- especially to those who have to provide clothing for more than one child. Wouldn’t it be great if back to school shopping was easy and cheap? Of course it would.
The recent budget cuts in education tends to take a big toll in the classroom, not only are there more students cramming into already crowded classes, there are fewer supplies to go around. With limited supplies available some teachers and other parents end up spending their own money to buy pencils, pens, notebooks, and textbooks for students whose families can’t afford them.
The Divine Intervention & Prevention Foundation also know as (D.I.P.) is a non-profit organization whose core objective is to educate and empower families to live healthy, holistic lives without the use of violence as a recourse to solve relationship, personal, and financial plights is seeking donations to help kids ages 5-17 gear up for school.
(D.I.P.) has helped over 1,500 families through the Healing Hearts Jax that has lead to the organization’s program expansion and the kickoff of the #Tools4SchoolJax clothing & school supply giveaway to be held on Saturday August 5 at 10am. To learn more about the organization visit www.Dipfoundation.org
Tools 4 School Jax supports underprivileged students in need with back to school supplies & clothing to make sure that these kids are excited about school and have everything they need to succeed. (D.I.P.) hopes that you will choose to partner in helping children in Duval County return to school with the supplies they need by bringing donations to: D.I.P. Outreach Charity Suite 2078 Cassat Avenue Jacksonville, FL 32210
The Tools 4 School Jax fundraiser really can go along way in making the 2017-2018 school year a happier one for teachers and students alike.

Everyday Life can have its way of blindsiding us with the latest uploads on Instagram, Facebook live notifications, and snapchat stories about the VMA’s red carpet slayage, and the never-ending antics of the Kardashians on TMZ. Meanwhile we give little or no attention to the less fortunate children and families in our communities that suffer from hunger and abuse.

Did you know that there is nothing as powerful as a changed mind?
You can change your hair, your clothing, your address, your spouse, your church, your residence. But if you don’t change your mind the same experience will perpetuate itself over and over again because everything outwardly changed, but nothing inwardly changed. "Whatever you hold in your mind will tend to occur in your life. If you continue to believe as you have always believed, you will continue to act as you have always acted. If you continue to act as you have always acted, you will continue to get what you have always gotten. If you want different results in your life or your work, all you have to do is change your mind."
