It's been said that "denim is a way of life," but for most of us, this statement is only true after 5 p.m., and on weekends and some holidays. That's right, that struggle deciding what to wear to work, to church, or to a meeting, would be so much easier if you could just throw on your favorite pair of blue jeans. So we came up with an idea.
What if YOU could wear blue jeans to work, to church, or to that meeting and help Cunningham kids at the same time? Well, you can with the Cunningham Children's Home Blue Jean's Challenge - a simple and fun way you can help ensure that our youth have the resources they need to heal, learn, and grow.
Just how simple is it, you ask? Very simple. All you need to do is rally your employees, co-workers, or members to donate $5 or more for the right to wear jeans on Giving Tuesday, November 28, 2017, or any other day in November. The money you donate will help bridge the $28 per child per day gap between the actual costs of caring for our kids and the reimbursements we receive from state and federal sources.
Now we know that for some places, wearing jeans is an absolute no-no, and for others, jeans is the norm, so in these cases, were asking for you to come up with their own "perk that works." And if employers, churches, and organizations would consider hosting a "Lunch and Learn" with Cunningham or matching their employees and members contributions, just imagine how this could impact our kids at Cunningham.
If you're interested in participating in Cunningham's Blue Jeans Challenge, or know someone who might be, please contact Ginger McKee at firstname.lastname@example.org or 217.337.9074 and she'll "outfit" you with all the necessary materials you'll need. We also want to recognize and thank you on our website and through social media for taking the Blue Jeans Challenge.
So whether your style is high-waist, boot-cut, straight, skinny, super skinny, relaxed, or dare we say, bell bottoms, it's time for you to get into a comfortable pair of blue jeans and make your own fashion statement. Besides, it's for a real good cause!
