No More Poverty donated 50 children’s books to Precious Lamb Preschool in Long Beach, California. Entitled “I am Healthy! Affirmations for Health and Well-being,” the book is published by the I AM Foundation and gifted to people around the world.
The organization supports children, parents, and teachers to make healthy choices regarding food, exercise, and other daily activities. “I Am Healthy!” also includes a workbook section for children along with articles and teaching aids for parents and teachers. The vision of Precious Lamb Preschool is to "break the cycle of homelessness, one child at a time" by providing free, early education and care to children and families facing homelessness.
“Precious Lamb Preschool does tremendous work with children in the community and we believe the positive messaging in the I AM Healthy book will inspire their life choices and activities,” according to Julian Omidi, co-founder of No More Poverty. “My brother Michael Omidi and I are happy to share this resource. The life lessons taught in this book about health and improved self-esteem will undoubtedly make a positive difference for generations to come.”
