Lincoln Littles Giving Day

Wednesday, February 12 is not only Abraham Lincoln’s Birthday, it’s also the second annual Lincoln Littles Giving Day!

This one special day, inspired by Prosper Lincoln, gives everyone in our great community the opportunity to help more children in need receive a quality early childhood education.

You too can live by Abe’s words, “When I do good, I feel good.”

Together, we’ve raised

$ 637,397

for Lincoln Littles, an early childhood education initiative.
