Our First Annual Rock for a Cause! This year we will be raising money to Adopt-A-Family for the Holidays. Brighter Beginnings, an organization in Oakland that works to strength families of young children, will provide us with information about a family with a holiday wish list (of mostly necessities and a few fun gift items). The party donations will go towards providing our Adopted Family with groceries, supplies, and gifts for the holidays. http://www.brighter-beginnings.org/
Please contact Rachel via email or personal message if you would like to come to Rock for a Cause but do not have access to PayPal and would like to arrange another way to get your donation to Rachel.
We have our family!
Age: 3 yrs. Old
Rosevelt has asthma and needs a warm coat to go back and forth to daycare on public transportation. He would like a black puff jacket.
Warm clothing would also include button up shirts, and Levi jeans.
One piece pajamas, a robe, and slippers would keep him toasty. Undershirts, boxers, and socks would provide warmth up under his clothing. (any color, any brand)
Rosevelt loves playing with and talking about animals. He would love a set of farm animals or zoo animals. He also likes to play outside and would enjoy a remote control car, bicycle, basketball, action figures (transformer), or any educational toy.
SPECIAL WISH: a two wheeler bicycle.
Rosevelt is a serious little guy, who gives much thought to anything he is talking about. He likes animals, and asks many questions about them. He attends a quality daycare, that meets his needs. Rosevelt was a premature baby, and suffers with asthma, but has caught up developmentally with other children his age. Despite being asthmatic, he likes to play outdoors and wants a bicycle.
Age: 19 yrs.

Levi jacket, and straight leg Levi's to be stylish going from school to work. On cold days, Jayana could use a sweat suit in pink. She admired one she saw at Victoria Secret.
Jayana has a basic need for socks, bras (38C), panties ( sz. 7).
Jayana could use a large black leather purse, to go from school to work and be able to carry all of her stuff, as well as her child's things. She thinks this could be found at a reasonable price from Marshalls or Ross discount stores.
Jayana has sensitive skin and would like a DOVE gift basket of toiletries.
Jayana broke her phone recently and has a SPECIAL WISH for a Samsung Galaxy Note 2 Android. (client understands that donor may not be able to meet this need)
A food gift card to help with Christmas dinner from Lucky's or Safeway would be appreciated.
To meet basic needs, a gift card from WalMart, Old Navy, or Victoria Secret would be put to good use.
Jayana is a single mother raising her 3-yr. old son. When Jayana first entered our program she had doubts about being able to juggle being a good parent and pursuing her high school education at the same time. With encouragement and support, Jayana is working towards completing her GED, working part-time, and her son is attending a high-quality daycare center. Jayana has gained confidence in her abilities to parent and work towards self sufficiency. She would appreciate any gifts that would met her and her sons basic needs, and help to make their Christmas holiday a happy one.
