#GivingTuesday 2018

Acworth, GA (November 15, 2018) – November 27, 2018 is #GivingTuesday, a global day of giving that harnesses the collective power of a unique blend of partners – charities, families, businesses, and individuals—to encourage philanthropy and to celebrate generosity worldwide. #GivingTuesday is held annually on the Tuesday after Thanksgiving, this year, November 27, 2018, to kick off the holiday giving season and to inspire people to give. Millions of people around the world have participated in the movement.

This year, Facebook and PayPal will be matching up to $7 million of funds raised on Facebook for US nonprofits (this is $5 million more than last year). Whether you have $10, $100, or $1000 to give, it all adds up for us! Especially when being matched! This is also a great way to maximize an end of year tax deduction. In our first #GivingTuesday, last year, we raised $1,870… Our goal this year is $2,500.

In the spirit of giving, we will rekindle our #GivingTowelTuesday campaign to donate towels to Lake City & Acworth Animal Hospitals (one of our biggest supporters) to use for their Road Trip Home Animal Rescue support. On the last Tuesday of the month we will collect gently used towels and blankets to donate to help them help the rescue.

“After an overwhelming show of support from our community during our 2016/2017 fundraisers, we felt compelled to do something to thank our supporters.” Said Kim Wigington, Principal, “One of our biggest sponsors & supporters, a local veterinary service, is constantly needing towels for one of the charities they support, Road Trip Home Animal Rescue. We knew our families would support this and they did not disappoint. We collected over 175 towels and blankets, which is tremendous given the size of our school.”

About Brookwood Christian

Brookwood Christian School is a private, non-profit, non-denominational Christian school that serves students who have not been successful in public or private schools due to their unique learning needs: individual or multiple learning disorders such dyslexia, reading & language processing disorders, auditory processing disorders, attention deficit disorder, neurological disorders, and other specific learning disabilities. Most of our operating budget comes from tuition payments augmented by the Georgia SB-10 scholarship program. Eighty-six percent of our students receive some sort of financial assistance. Recognition such as this helps with our fundraising which helps keep our operating costs and tuition low.

About #GivingTuesday

Founded in 2012 by the 92nd Street Y – a community and cultural center in New York City − #GivingTuesday inspired millions of people to give back and support the causes they believe in. Over $300 million was raised online to benefit a tremendously broad range of organizations, and much more was given in volunteer hours, donations of food and clothing, and acts of kindness. “It’s been a privilege to work with remarkable leaders all over the country building a movement around #GivingTuesday,” said Henry Timms, 92Y’s Executive Director and founder of #GivingTuesday. “This initiative has truly been crowd-sourced by some of the smartest and most connected minds among the next generation of philanthropists and entrepreneurs.”

It inspires people to take collective action to improve their communities, give back in better, smarter ways to the charities and causes they believe in, and help create a better world. #GivingTuesday demonstrates how every act of generosity counts, and that they mean even more when we give together.

Hurricane Florence Relief

Please help if you can!!

Hurricane Florence has adversely affected so many, and we found out that a dear friend of one of our families is the principal at Laurel Hill Elementary School in Laurinburg, Scotland County, NC.  After reaching out to the administration at Laurel Hill, it seems that they have more families displaced than they originally thought.🙁

In the same spirit of adopting Friendswood Junior High after hurricane Harvey, we are going to adopt Laurel Hill and help as we can.  We will be sending these store specific (Walmart, Food Lion, Save-a-Lot, and Lowes), or generic (AMEX, VISA, MasterCard), gift cards to assist these families.

If you would like to help us, please send as many gift cards as you’d like in denominations of $20 to $25, or less, so that they are easier for school to share.  Please do not think that any amount is too small, they all add up and they are in such dire need! Last year we raised over $1,5oo in gift cards. They definitely add up quickly.

When you send them in, please make sure your name is attached (and address if not a BCS student/family)  and you will receive a tax deduction letter from us for this cause.

We will take these donations until they stop coming in. We will send first round in about 2 weeks, and then keep sending periodically as we get them. This time frame may change depending on the situation there, as there are reports of more evacuation because of flooding. We will make sure they are sent when we know someone is there to receive them.

Please drop off to Ms. Danielle, Ms. Julie, or Ms. Becky, OR… if you are mailing them:

Thank you!

 

4th Annual History & Southern Charm Tour

Seven Beautiful Homes, Seven Astounding Stories

Acworth, GA (September 19, 2018) – Join us on this tour of Acworth’s most beautiful homes, all representative of our history! Starting at the McEver house, pick up your map and and tour these homes in whatever order you choose. Water will be provided and three homes will have wine & cheese.

The 4th Annual Tour is on October 21, 2018 from 2pm until 6pm. This is a self paced walking tour, though there are areas to park if you wish to drive, and shuttles between the longer distances. You will need to begin no later than 4pm to ensure enough time to complete the tour.

This tour started partly as a fundraiser and partly to help showcase the beautiful homes in Acworth. It quickly grew and by the 3rd year we exceeded our expectations and it took a life of its own. Now it’s a self paced tour, making it easier for visitors to complete at their convenience. This year we are coordinating with a local historic group to have docents with either a family tie to the home or know about the home from their childhood, which should make for a more quaint experience.

We owe so much to Abbie Parks, local historian, for her guidance and wealth of information getting this tour started, as well as so selflessly allowing the use of her home each year!

Homes on the 2018 tour:

  1. McEver House c. 1840 (Ticket pick up & purchase)
  2. James W. McMillan House c. 1879
  3. Guess House c. 1909
  4. Honeymoon House c. 1907
  5. Sprayberry House c. 1943
  6. Edward W. Lemon c. 1900 (Sponsored by Anchor Realty)
  7. Burtz House c. 1880

The tour ends near Center Street Tavern, another historic site, which has offered a $5 coupon off of $25 on each ticket.

Tickets are on sale now:

-$25 through Saturday, October 13, where they will also be on sale at our booth at Taste of Acworth
-$30 from Sunday, October 14 through Saturday October 20
-$35 on the day of the tour

You can purchase HERE or by cash/check/credit card in the office from 9-3.

Presenting Sponsors: Anchor Realty Partners and Center Street Tavern

Interested in sponsoring a home? Or being a Wine & Cheese Sponsor?
Call or Text 404-428-8960 or email acworth.charm@brookwoodchristian.com

For more information on the houses, click HERE this site will be updated regularly.

Brookwood Christian celebrates 10th Birthday and Dyslexia Awareness Month

Celebrate with us October 10th, 2018 from 10:30am until 2pm

Acworth, GA (September 19, 2018) — Brookwood Christian School plans its 10th Birthday Extravaganza, Ten on 10/10 (#10on1010), three weeks from today. For 10 years, at this location, the school has served over 200 students with dyslexia or some other type of language processing disorder. On October 10, 2008, the school had the ribbon cutting for the opening of the original building, so it’s appropriate that the ribbon cutting for the new high school building will be on the day of the 10th Birthday celebration.

“It’s such an honor that we can celebrate the school’s 10th birthday during Dyslexia Awareness Month” said Danielle Anderson, Director of Student Affairs, “Not only are we celebrating 10 years of service to help students read, we are celebrating the successes and achievements of these students as well.”

The celebration, which is open to the Acworth Community, features the Ribbon Cutting Ceremony by Mayor Tommy Allegood and City of Acworth officials, a mini outside food court where guests can purchase Chick-fil-A, Pop Bubble Tea (both donating proceeds to the school’s Dyslexia Reading Programs) as well as Flavors of Hawaii Food Truck.  There will also be $1 per minute chair massages by Lori Tanner from Synergy Medical, with all proceeds benefiting the school’s Dyslexia Reading Programs. And of course, it’s not a birthday party without birthday cake, which will be provided by the school.

To thank those donating $30 or more, the school will be giving away 12”x18” collage prints of student art centered around the school and school day activities. Historic Acworth Door Prints will also be for sale.

There will be limited parking at the school with additional parking available at Acworth Baptist Church, a 2 minute walk (less than ½ mile).
