Children Art Classes

Posted by Gladys Jimenez on Saturday, January 18, 2014,

Dear friends,

This year it is my goal to raise more funds so that we can provide more art lessons to children. Even after 15 years of volunteering as an art teacher at the local elementary schools, I still find it wonderful to see children's faces light up when they find out they are going to do art. It's just such a joy! 

This week I taught two kindergarten classes and one 5th grade class.  I was so impressed with the kindergarten children. It had been a while since I had worked with little on...

Happy Holidays!

Posted by Gladys Jimenez on Saturday, December 14, 2013, In : BCLF 
Dear Friends,

Another year has gone and the promise of a new, better year, is just a round the corner.

Our annual board meeting is in a few days and though we didn't reach our goals due
to various reasons, we have hope that 2014 will be different. That people who believe
in our cause will join us and realize that it is a privilege to contribute into something
greater than ourselves, to be a part of something that touches other people's lives.

So happy holidays! May your receive as much as you give....

Why Do We Give?

Posted by Gladys Jimenez on Sunday, May 26, 2013, In : BCLF 

Dear Friends,

Do you ever wonder why people give?  What pulls us to share of your time, money, and gifts with others, and to withhold them from others?

Do we give to get recognition so we feel we are a good person or to feel that feeling that get when we selflessly give to another?

It is important to give, as only by helping each other can we thrive, but I would love to hear your thoughts on this.

With Love,

End of 2012

Posted by Gladys Jimenez on Friday, December 7, 2012, In : BCLF 
Dear Friends,

Here we are at the end of another year.

Due to health issues this year I was not able to devote as much time as I wanted to the organization. Right now it's pretty much stalled but will get the ball moving again this coming new year.

We do need volunteer board members, you don't need to be local, as our annual meetings are conducted over the internet. If you would like to find out more about this position, please email me.

We didn't get the grant from Target but we will keep trying ...

Time To Grow

Posted by Gladys Jimenez on Monday, August 6, 2012, In : BCLF 

It was a busy year with art classes and now that it's summer it's time for the foundation to grow.

I have applied for a grant from Target. The grant is only $2,000.00 but it will be of much help if we get it, as it will allow more art classes in our public elementary schools in Escondido that do not have an art program.

I am going to sign up for a grant class as well as there are many grants available for us. 

We have also received a few leads of companies that work for non-profits that seem pr...
