Investment in kids worth it

Kids! Children! Whether they are our relatives or the ones down the street, we care about them. We don’t want to see them hurt and wish them the best in their future, but are wishes the best we can do?

Can those falling through the cracks have a different outcome than currently exists? Yes! With the Children’s Investment Fund (Proposition 1) there can be more children in early childhood programs; quality day care can be a reality for the little tots. Latchkey kids won’t have the TV for encouragement but mentors that help with homework or play a game of Scrabble.

Proposition 1 will have a positive impact on OUR kids, which are the future. Do you care to make the investment?
