If you or your company are going to give a gift, you might as well make it a fun, brain-developing gift. The most important thing anyone can do for children (and communities can do for the future!) is invest in brain development at an early age. This gift shows that you care about the parent, the child and your community.

StartSmart Birth Gifts include a set of 3 board books for the new baby, Mind in the Making: The Seven Essential Life Skills Every Child Needs by Ellen Galinsky for the parent/caregiver, and a set of fun tips for early childhood brain development from Vroom, all wrapped in a flannel baby blanket! A congratulations card with your customized message can be included.

Your gift also contributes toward enrollment of a local, “at-risk” child in Dolly Parton’s Imagination Library. This means more books for local kids!

StartSmart: Birth Gifts with a Purpose is sponsored by the Impact Monadnock Business Ambassadors. Enrollments in Dolly Parton’s Imagination Library are managed by the Keene Housing Kids Collaborative. If you have questions about this new initiative, please contact us.
