$20 Donations That Make a Big Difference for Foster Children

Many people want to donate to foster children. They love the idea of making a difference in a child’s life, but because they don’t have a lot of money to help they simply don’t. A common misconception is that foster children donations must be big or nothing, yet this couldn’t be further from the truth. Today we will show you how $20 donations can make a very big difference in the lives of numerous foster children with these great donation ideas.

1: Art Supplies

Art can be therapeutic for children, and also teaches vital skills like hand-eye coordination or fine motor development. For just $20 you could donate 10 fifty cent coloring books, 10 packs of crayons at $1 each, and a 12-pack of Play-doh. This could make a difference in the lives of over ten children!

2: Journaling Supplies

Journaling is also an effective therapy and coping method – especially for teenagers who may not be as open to talking about their problems with others. At several times during the year, you can find journals at 25 cents each and ten packs of pencils for just $1. With a little sale shopping and just $20, you could potentially purchase fifty pencils and sixty notebooks!

3: Musical Instruments

Music is yet another therapy which allows foster children a healthy coping outlet. But all musical instruments cost a lot of money, don’t they? No, not necessarily. At any dollar store (or even larger toy outlets) you can find plastic recorders for $1 to $2. For $20 you could purchase ten to twenty of these! Rather go a different route? You can find cheap tambourines for around $5 at the same outlets. You could four of those for $20!
