Kelly Goulart, founder and president of A Present Project, discovered the number of children in foster care in Hillsborough County and immediately knew she needed to find a way to help these children. She wanted to find a way to share some joy with this population of children, and she had heard about programs that provide presents for children in other areas of the country. Kelly herself is a big fan of birthdays and knew this would be a wonderful way to support these children. With that loving motivation, A Present Project was born!
What They Do
A Present Project partners with local child advocacy groups and their volunteers to gather birthday requests from foster children. They publish that Present Request List on their website with an approximate value for each request.
Many times, generous donations allow them to purchase the gifts themselves, or other times, donors send us the gifts directly. Those gifts are then wrapped by groups of volunteers and delivered with love to the children.
How You Can Help
A Present Project needs your help. There are so many birthdays and so many children in foster care in Hillsborough County. There are many ways you can help A Present Project reach their goals:
Hi! I'm Diana. I love the beach, my family, chocolate, coffee, and meeting new people. I host monthly events in the Tampa area and cannot wait to meet all of you!
