Many of us continued through school until graduation because we had a great support system, but did you know that every 26 seconds, a student gives up on school in America?
City Year corps members serve as tutors, mentors and role models to help students stay on track – and get back on track – to graduate.
This year, City Year’s 1,750 young leaders, who are 17 to 24 years old, will complete nearly 3 million hours of service through the following activities:
• Tutoring, mentoring and serving as role models to help children and schools succeed
• Leading after-school and school vacation programs
• Engaging students of all ages in community service and leadership development activities
• Planning and leading transformational service projects
I am a board member for City Year because I absolutely believe in the work that they do. I've seen first-hand the committment of these volunteers. They truly are passionate about helping others.
In order to continue these services and provide additional ones, City Year needs the proper funding.
I know that usually, we all give tangible gifts for the Holidays. Personally, I don't need a damn thing. I have a happy and healthy family and that's all I could ask for. But, I do want to give back.
Please join me and give the gift of a donation to City Year for the holiday.
You can even send these really great e-gift cards with your donation to a friend or family member. That way they'll be receiving the gift of a donation in their name.

It will take anywhere from 3 seconds to 1 minute for your pic to upload, depending on how big it is.
You're going to see this message every time you post a new pic. So, we're making the text really long so that it'll take you at least five picture uploads to read it all. Here's what we're thinking...While you're first picture is uploading think about someone you want to kiss. When you upload your second pic think about one friend who you can beat in a race. On your third photo upload think about your favorite food that begins with the letter H. While your fourth picture is uploading think about how great it would be if you were a world class breakdancer. While your fifth picture is uploading try to think of the best candy to eat if you were a mime spending a month in New Zealand. If you upload a sixth and seventh picture please just read all of this again.
We're setting up your Fundraiser page right now. It will take anywhere from 3 seconds to 27 seconds.
CrowdRise is designed to help Volunteers and Fundraisers answer the call to service, raise money for Charity, and have the most fun in the world while doing it. To make sure we don't go out of business trying to help everyone raise lots of money for Charity, CrowdRise deducts 5% on donations made through our site and a $1 transaction fee for donations under $25 or a $2.50 transaction fee for donations $25 and over.
For example, with a $100 donation:
-$5.00 (5%) CrowdRise's not wanting to go out of business fee
-$2.50 Transaction Fee
$92.50 goes to Charity

There's no better way to make a Fundraiser viral than by creating or joining a Fundraising Team.
A Fundraising Team is a group of Fundraisers or Volunteers, all working together for a common cause. It's like communism but more fun. Start or Join a Fundraising Team if you want to go beyond donating money and get more involved by spreading the word about the Fundraiser to your friends, family, co-workers, etc. Everyone on the Team gets their own Fundraising Page with the click of a button so we make it quick and easy to join the Team and even easier to tell your friends about it. Donating cash to a Fundraiser is amazing and much appreciated but imagine the impact you can have if you go a step further and ask everyone you know to donate too. And then a couple of them join the Team and spread the word to all their friends. We've seen this work successfully over and over and it can work for this Fundraiser too.
If you have any question about how to Join or set up a Team on CrowdRise, please Contact Us.
Share your Project Page with everyone you know and ask them to donate to your amazing cause. 97% of people you ask will say yes. And if they don't give at least a little cash money, there's no reason to buy them a holiday or birthday gift ever again.
