THE STORY:

IAN'S FUNDAMENTALS OF LEARNING (AND SELFLESS GIVING)...

 

The 5 W's:

 

We all learned the 5 W's in school.  Well here are the 5 W's that relate to the effort I am putting forth in order to raise much needed funds for my charity of choice, HANDY.

 

WHO:  Youth in need.  If you trust me (which you must, since you are part of my exclusive e-mail list), then no more need be said.  I am frugal with my time and my money, so my choice to give time and money to HANDY was similar to most choices in my life - calculated with an eye towards getting the most efficient output for my input - HANDY's youth provide that output daily.

 

WHAT:  HANDY is in need.  Not unlike most non-profits these days, HANDY needs funding to continue providing services to our local youth.  LEARN MORE ABOUT HOW HANDY HELPS BY WATCHING THIS INSPIRING VIDEO: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=NwKybm3drug

 

WHEN:  NOW.  I cannot lie, I will give you 7 business days to help me reach my goal.  HANDY has generous donation match offers that will expire, so I had to act now.

 

WHERE:  This website, duh.   J/K.  You are helping the youth in our community.  For example, a young man who I attempt to mentor (I say attempt, because I am still a child in many respects) is currently enrolled in Broward Community College thanks to HANDY's support in grade school and generous scholarship offerings (facilitated by HANDY) thereafter.  That is a direct community impact!

 

WHY:  See all of my answers above and add some basic multiplication (never stop learning)....

 

ARITHMETIC

 

Step 1:  YOU DONATE LOADS OF CASH

 

Step 2:  IAN AGREES TO MATCH THE FIRST $300 (out of his own cheap pocket)DONATED BY NEW HANDY DONORS

 

Step 3:  IAN BEGS HIS EMPLOYER (TRIPP SCOTT) TO MATCH THE COMBINED EFFORTS OF IAN AND ANY OTHER ASSOCIATES AT TRIPP SCOTT

 

Step 4:  A GENEROUS HANDY SUPPORTER HAS AGREED TO THEN MATCH ALL DONATIONS RAISED BY IAN WHICH COME FROM ANY NEW HANDY DONORS!

 

 

THE FINE PRINT (by fine, I mean good looking)

 

HANDY’s mission is to embrace, educate, and empower vulnerable youth to become engaged, productive adults.

HANDY annually serves more than 1,300 at-risk children who participate in comprehensive programs that focus on education, youth development, and economic self-sufficiency.

 

BY THE NUMBERS...

Lives are changed | 97% youth moved to the next grade and improve

academically | 95% of youth graduated high school and 100% of them enrolled in college/technical school.

Lives are saved | 94% of the youth did not engage in criminal activities.

Dreams come true | 68% of college students graduate as compared to 3% nationally for same population of youth.

 

 

Who are HANDY's Board of Directors???

HANDY is guided by a volunteer Board of Directors representing corporate, professional, and community-based organizations. Individual members are selected for their leadership abilities, talent, experience, and dedication. <----- me, duh.
