BENEFITING: BRIDGE TO TURKIYE
My name is Elise Tanyel. My father was born and raised in Turkey and was fortunate enough to be given the opportunity to come to America and further his education, as well as eventually get married and start a family. However, many Turkish children are not as lucky and will not be exposed to the same opportunities that my father had, and that he is now able to provide for my brother and me. Many kids in Turkey are not able to learn in favorable school settings, one of the culprits for this being a lack of fundage going to their school. Bridge to Turkiye is a nonprofit organization based in North Carolina that accepts your donations and turns them into opportunities for these disadvantaged children. The fund works directly with reliable distributors in Turkey that in turn accommodate schools in need with the books, supplies, shoes and other necessities crucial to creating a safe environment where children are able to get a good education. Regardless of how small or large your donation is, it will transform a disadvantaged child’s life for the better.
