Brown’s is Giving Back: Sylvia’s Children

giving backWe are a proud supporter of Sylvia’s Children, a charity whose mission is to assist children in the town of Mbiriizi, Uganda.

In 2003, Sylvia Allen of Holmdel accompanied a non-profit organization on a humanitarian trip to Uganda, Africa. While she was there, she visited the Mbiriizi Primary School. More than 1,400 children attend the school, of which 250 are orphans due to diseases, such as AIDS, Tuberculosis and Malaria. The school and children impacted Sylvia so much, that when Geofrey Kawuma asked her to be the school’s “Grandmother”, she was honored to accept the responsibility.

Upon returning home, Sylvia founded Sylvia’s Children, a 501(c)3 organization dedicated to improving the lives of her ‘grandchildren’ and to give the children a fighting chance. The charity is helping to make the school self-sustaining. So far, Sylvia’s Children has helped to build a working well, stock the school library with books, expand classrooms outfitted with new desks, and acquire additional land near the school for future use.

In June, our own Doug Brown took a trip to Uganda to visit the school and see how Brown’s Heating, Cooling and Plumbing could help.  During his time there, Doug saw first hand the difference Sylvia’s Children was making in these children’s lives and the incredible spirit and love of learning her children embodied. Doug was so inspired by what he witnessed, that we at Brown’s have decided to create our own Christmas in July, to benefit Sylvia’s Children.

A portion of every service call we make in July & August will go to Sylvia’s Children for their Christmas party in November. 

We have one goal: to help Sylvia’s Children.

Easy to Participate

giving backWe believe there’s no better definition of success than serving a purpose and filling a need in the world while doing what you love. But, we also understand that it can be difficult as a homeowner to find extra funds for so many causes when mortgage, bills and myriad other things demand so much time and money.

That’s why we, at Brown’s, have made it possible for our customers to be a part of our giving back program without changing anything you’re currently doing…and at no additional cost.

Please help us bring joy to 1,000 school children in Uganda for Christmas. Donate directly to Sylvia’s Children or schedule an appointment with Browns during July and we will donate on your behalf. Donations will go towards providing every girl a new dress and every boy a new shirt. In addition, we’ll give each of them a “goody” bag of beads, sweets, stickers, crayons, pencils, kazoos and sunglasses. In most instances, these are the only presents these children will receive for Christmas

Why Sylvia’s Children?

Sylvia’s Children is a family-run charity, with zero administration fees. All funds go directly to the school without any filters, with any administration costs paid out of the founder’s own money. Donors can not only see where their money goes, but can also watch it work. Unfortunately, with many charities, you send your money and never know where it goes and never see it work. With Sylvia’s Children …YOU DO! There is no minimum and no maximum limit, all contributions are 100% Tax Deductible.

“You must be the change you wish to see in the world.” Mahatma Gandhi
