As many of you know, I have volunteered with the Bright Beginnings Center for years. It is an early education program for homeless infants and toddlers in D.C. Bright Beginnings helps 40% of the homeless children in DC and relies on our fundraising efforts to support those children. Through my involvement with the Junior League of Washington, I’ve been volunteering at the center for years and have seen firsthand what a critical role Bright Beginnings plays in these children’s lives. I'm reaching out to see if you want to help support Bright Beginnings’ mission and donate to the Bright Beginnings 2016 5K. Each year the Junior League of Washington holds a 5K fundraiser for Bright Beginnings. This year the race will take place on April 30, 2016. Our goal is to raise $80K, and all funds raised go directly to Bright Beginnings. My personal fundraising goal is $1000. Any donation amount is helpful and goes straight to helping Bright Beginnings!
