Donation #15 Recipient Report

An anonymous donor provides Life of Fred, Story of the World, and games for Math for two homeschool families in financial need.

Did you know? As an email subscriber or Facebook page follower of this blog, you will never miss donations such as this!

This donor wanted to make sure that recipients were chosen who specifically asked for what she wished to donate.  Homeschool Curriculum Free for Shipping helped her give brand new, unused curriculum, anonymously.

The donor in this case is paying forward what she received last year. She says she received some of these things from donors herself, and these items have helped her homeschooler out tremendously. Things are looking up for her, and she wishes to give back. She's donating BRAND NEW Life of Fred, Story of the World, and math games to two families who specifically asked for them! 

The donor explains why she is donating. She says that these particular gifts to her "were a breath of fresh air to our homeschool," and wishes to bless "a family needing something 'different' after other curricula haven't been well loved by their child/children." She wants to give a family a second chance to try something new if their current curriculum just isn't working, and they don't have the luxury to go out and buy something different.

There were two families who are receiving this, our 15th donation!

The first family is starting over after the father lost his job.  They moved to a new state and lost most of their curriculum.  They asked for Life of Fred and games to help teach Math.

The second family recently lost their home to a house fire.  Nothing was salvageable, and all the chidren's curriculum was lost.  They are currently living in a hotel until living arrangements can be made.  Story of the World will come in handy to them, not taking up much space and allowing multiple children/ages to work together for History studies.

Anytime a business or private donor would like to donate BRAND NEW curriculum, books, or school supplies, and meets ALL of the following criteria, this blog can serve you in your efforts:

  • if you wish to pay for the full amount of shipping costs, to make the donation COMPLETELY FREE to the recipient.
  • if you wish to either ship from your own home, OR if you wish to ship the items to an authorized HSCFFS distribution center for redistribution.
  • AND if the items you are giving away are completely NEW and UNOPENED/UNUSED. "Like New" condition is sometimes accepted.
