Buddy Bench Project (Now Fire Victims Fundraiser)

DONATE HERE TO THE FIRE VICTIMS!
The Race for Kids 501-c3 non-profit is now accepting donations via the BUDDY BENCH PROJECT. Over the next week, donations will go specifically to evacuees and victims of the fires raging through Sonoma County and nearby areas. Steven and I, and a few friends will purchase desperately needed supplies and take them directly where they’re needed here in Petaluma. As of now, we hope to donate bedding (cots, ground pads, blankets). PLEASE USE THE FOLLOWING LINK:

What is a buddy bench?

A buddy bench is placed on the playground and is a place for a child to meet up with another buddy. So when children find themselves alone, all they need to do is sit on the buddy bench to initiate their desire for someone to talk or play.
