A Chance To Grow
Organized by: Pétra Clark
In today's society I see more trouble then I do freedom. More pain then happiness. So many adults without a goal or a dream. So many people in this day and age are struggling, using, abusing and/or homeless. Sometimes it's only because of missed opportunities or because the same opportunities were never given to them. Yet there are so many others that were blessed with an opportunity to make an extreme difference, but they turn the other cheek. So it's not necessarily about having the money to give, it's about wanting to give. Give to those less fortunate who want better for themselves. Who's lives have statistics. Give before they become those babies raising babies. Those young adults getting pregnant just so they can know love, or won't be alone. Those women who continue to have more and more babies then they can afford to design a future for themselves, because the "system" life is all they know. So what if you had that opportunity? What if u could learn about who you are as an individual? Learn and celebrate your culture. Would you have a better shot at knowing where you're going? We all have a gift and a purpose, but we all don't have an outlet to create a spark. An investor to support our dreams. This fundraiser will sponsor the location for an opportunity where kids can wake up on a Saturday morning and have a healthy meal, have fun and learn something educational. Where in the summer kids can have a safe haven, without worry of getting hurt. Where during the week at no cost to them, parents can leave their children in a safe environment so that they can go to work to provide. For the young adult that has no outlet, you can come and be heard versus joining a street gang just to feel like you are a part of something. And For the hungry you can come get a hot plate, a hygiene kit and a warm smile. Knowledge is power and if each one teaches one imagine what we could all do from what we learned. You never know who you might meet while networking. The friend you'll make. The life you'll change. The difference you never could have made, if you weren't here to make the difference. With help from you we can have a place where not just the youth but the community can come and stand together for a better cause. Our future, the children. And to know you contributed to someone who wanted the opportunity to grow mentally, emotionally and physically...now that's a grand feeling.
