Happy Thursday Lovelies!
I am overjoyed at the wonderful feedback and support I am receiving regarding iJournalNow Project. It warms my heart to see people embracing this project as much as they are. I believe together we can make a difference for the younger generation. After all they are our future. Unfortunately, the website design is taking a little longer than I expected. Designers – huh! So, today I have decided to give you a brief overview of what iJournalNow Project is and what we hope to accomplish.
About iJournalNow Project:
iJournalNow Project is an outreach program that provides children in need with journal packets and informative workshops. The objective of our journal packets and workshops is to increase the knowledge of children in care in three key areas: creativity, leadership, and goal attainment. While children residing in group homes, foster care, juvenile centers, shelters, and other housing facilities are those we have specifically designed this project for, we welcome children from all backgrounds to participate in the journal-writing movement.
To provide under-resourced children the tools and guidance for building their future, through journal writing, empowerment workshops and mentoring.
To create a program within a program with non-profits around the world. By partnering with other organizations, iJournalNow Project will be able to empower, inspire and connect with more children.
What we’ve done?
iJournalNow Project was created May of this year. To date, we have donated over eighty journal packets to non-profit organizations that work with children in foster care, homeless shelters and/or group homes. We have gained wonderful partnerships with Pajama Program, Family Matters, SLJ-Woman on Fire (Anti-Bullying) and more. Coming up in August, we are throwing our first back-to-school party, where we will donate school supplies and journal packets for children in a New York community. Of course, it wouldn’t be a party without pizza and snacks.
In a nutshell, what we do at iJournalNow Project is create beautiful journal packets for under-resourced children. We also offer a variety of free workshops such as: iWriteParties, Journal Writing 101, Goal-Setting, Entrepreneurship, Public Speaking, Teen Health and more, to promote literacy and encourage leadership and independent skills.
If you are interested in joining the journal movement, please email us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
P.S. Here’s something to write in your journal tonight and if you don’t have one it’s never too late to get one: What are your goals for the next three months?
Happy Journal Writing!
