A little background story:
Cora and Emma Jones of We are Going to France Designs are raising funds for two causes: Operation Breakthrough’s Birthday Closet, a stockpile of birthday gifts for children in need, and their class trip to France. Both girls go to a French immersion school that will give them the opportunity to go to France with the classmates at the end of their 6th grade. Emma is going into 3rd grade this fall and Cora will be in 6th grade. Cora now has less than a year to go, so she needs and wants to sell more of her handmade goods like origami star garlands, greeting cards, yarn necklaces, bracelets, and more. 

So during the month of July, 20% of their profits will be donated to Operation Breakthrough's Birthday Closet and the remainder will go towards funding her class trip in 2019 and Emma's in 2022. Thank you so much for all your support!! We truly appreciate it all!!


Operation Breakthrough is expanding! Soon they will have 290 more children for a total enrollment of more than 700. That means they will have a lot more birthdays to celebrate! 

For many years, the community has stocked the Birthday Closet at Operation Breakthrough with new toys so that every child, from ages 1 to 14, can receive a present on his or her birthday. This kindness makes a big difference for the children and their families. More than 70% of families at Operation Breakthrough are living on earnings of less than $12,000. Some children might not receive a gift on their special day without help from the Birthday Closet.

If you would like to help make the children's birthdays special, please consider donating a new, unwrapped toy or book. Especially popular are board games, Legos and other building sets, arts and craft supplies, cars and trucks, footballs, basketballs, science kits, journals and educational toys for children under age 5.
