BENEFITING: GENERATION ALIVE
ORGANIZER: GENERATION ALIVE
EVENT: San Francisco Marathon 2014
EVENT DATE: Jul 26, 2015
Earlier this evening, I watched a news documentary on the sad mass kidnapping of schoolgirls by terrorist in Nigeria. In Nigeria, there are "tens of thousands of people bought and sold every year," according to Africa expert Benjamin Lawrance. The majority are children.
GENERATION ALIVE was founded by Larisa and Jeremy Affeldt, pitcher for the San Francisco Giants, to inspire and motivate a generation of young people to get involved and live a life of compassion toward others who live with the pain of extreme poverty. www.GenerationAlive.org. GA works in collaboration with other compassion-based organizations to see the lives of young people changed by engaging them in acts of compassion that promote justice and alleviate the pain of poverty in their generation. They do this by awareness education and by,
• youth engaging in hunger projects
• youth providing aid to orphans
• youth funding clean water initiatives
• youth working toward the abolishment of child slavery
• youth promoting play through distribution of durable Futbol’s
On July 27, 2014, I will be running the San Francisco Marathon as a fundraiser to help support this organization and their efforts to care for people living in poverty. I sincerely thank you for reading this message and considering a donation to this organization.
