BENEFITING: Teak Fellowship, Inc.
EVENT DATE: Mar 18, 2015
"Education is for improving the lives of others and for leaving your community and world better than you found it."
- Marian Wright Edelman, founder and president of The Children's Defense Fund
My 30th birthday is a little over four months away. I want to make it memorable by giving back to an organization that helps underprivileged kids: The TEAK Fellowship.
My goal is to raise $30,000 by my 30th birthday, Wednesday, March 18th, in support of TEAK. The resources we provide will help TEAK prepare its students for academic and professional success, which includes assistance with those small yet essential items—college textbooks, athletic equipment, a winter coat—items that can make the difference between surviving in a new environment, and thriving there. And I want these students to thrive! They are, after all, our future.
