Nine year old Skyler Ferguson-Bain is becoming quite the Angel to the Grand Bahama Children’s Home this Christmas. Seeing a post on her mom’s Facebook page about Furniture Plus’ fundraising efforts on Grand Bahama for the Home, Skyler decided to lend a hand. As a part of the store’s “Charity of Hope Campaign,” Furniture Plus’ staff are selling paper ‘Angels’ to hang on their trees and Bahamian candles to support their store’s chosen charity. In addition to these sales, Furniture Plus then matches – dollar for dollar – the amount raised from those sales. “My daughter thought this was a great way to help the Home and asked if she could sell the angels too,” said her mother Ms. Stephanie Ferguson. “I contacted Furniture Plus and her school, Bishop Michael Eldon (BMES), and they both agreed to let Sklyer make sales to help the Children’s Home.” So far, Skyler has sold over $2,000 worth of ‘Angels’, which includes two amazing pledges of $500 and $1,000 which came from persons who read about her hard work on Facebook. Skyler has been given permission to sell the ‘Angels’ until the end of school term this year so if you see her about, please help her help the Grand Bahama’s Children’s Home. Sklyer is pictured with Tanya Wildgoose, Vice Principal at BMES, outside her school in Freeport, Grand Bahama.
