BENEFITING: Lucy Daniels Center for Early Childhood
ORGANIZER: Lucy Daniels Center for Early Childhood
EVENT DATE: Aug 31, 2013
I am proud to serve as a Board member for the Lucy Daniels Center, the largest nonprofit provider of comprehensive mental health services in the Triangle. The goal of Lucy Daniels Center is simple. We want to help children who are hurting inside by rerouting their emotional course and setting them on the right path to happy. And we want to do this for every child; no matter how much their family can afford. That is why we are raising money. I aim to raise $1000 by August 31, so that we can help more kids get back to happy. And that will make us all happy.
Here are few stats that should alarm you:
- 1 in 5 of every child will have a diagnosable mental health challenge.
- 1 in 20 will have a mental health challenge that is debilitating.
- Only about 7 percent of youth who need services receive appropriate help.
All it takes is for you to trade one Starbucks latte, one yoga class, one pedicure, or one lunch out for a donation to help get kids back to happy. I appreciate all that you can do to help!
