January 2020 Newsletter
This was our best holiday season ever! We celebrated with two parties this year, one for our younger students and one for the older students. Both parties were amazing with great food, crafts, decorations, entertainment, Santa and an Elf, and of course, lots of presents! Through our BF Elf program, our students had the opportunity to choose someone to give a gift to, wrap it, and experience the wonderful feeling of giving.

We would like to thank everyone who made it all possible! Thank you for donating gifts for our students and our BF Elf program, for baking cookies, for hosting collections & drives and for volunteering your time to wrap gifts, box cookies and so much more.

A special thank you to Campus Management, Spirit of Giving, The Giving Tree of Temple Beth El and We Rock the Spectrum for your generous support and partnership.

Education is the most powerful weapon which you can use to change the world ~ Nelson Mandela

We are so proud to have celebrated 3 graduations, two college and one master's program, in December. Why is that such a big deal? It is a big deal because there is only a 3% college graduation rate nationally for kids in foster care, so every one of our graduates is defying the odds. They have overcome obstacles to achieve great success and we look forward to seeing what comes next for them!

Our OCEANS 234 dinner was incredible!
We enjoyed a delicious four-course dinner, paired with wonderful wine and drinks, while enjoying the spectacular view of the Atlantic ocean.

Thank you to all who attended and to Oceans 234 for graciously hosting our guests.

What a great honor it was to be presented with a generous donation from Greenwise at the grand opening of their new Boca Raton store. Greenwise has chosen to support 3 local charities, and we are one of them!
You can support BFF- here's how it works:
-Sign up on  Greenwisemarket.com  (you will get coupons and rewards).
-Once you are registered, at the top of the page, it will say "Hi, with your name".

-Under the option "Give", at the top of the page, select Best Foot Forward from the drop down list.

-Each time you shop, enter your phone number into the credit card machine at the register before you enter your credit/debit card.

That's all you have to do, and Greenwise will donate a percentage of sales to Best Foot Forward every quarter. It is very easy and we are very appreciative of the support! 
Attend our next Information Session to learn more about Best Foot Forward, our programs and ways to get involved.
