BENEFITING: BROOKLYN STEPPERS
The Birthday Goal: By July 14 (my Birthday!), my goal of raising $2,400 would be used to support the 2013 – 2014 Brooklyn Steppers programming, including the Brooklyn Steppers Marching Band, the 2014 Battle of the Drumline and the Music Creation Project at P.S. 316.
Your birthday love gift from your heart of $24 or more (tax-deductible) will mean so much to the Brooklyn Steppers, esp to me. In all that I do, I want to be an example of what it means to give back to others in helping their dreams come alive!
Why: In 2013, I decided that this would be the "Year of Me." This year has been an AMAZING journey that has allowed me to focus on my relationship with God, reflect from my past mistakes and excel in ways that will help create the legacy I want to leave on this earth.
As my birthday was coming up, instead of throwing an annual birthday trip, I've decided to raise $2400 in support for the Brooklyn Steppers. I gladly joined the Finance Committee in January 2013 and was recently nominated to be on the board in May 2013. I accepted it because I want to continue enhancing and inspiring youths to discover their true calling in life and develop their leadership skills to create the leaders we need today. I have loved every moment of it and will give my birthday up to support its mission in exposing youths to once in-a-lifetime opportunities through the marching arts.
About The Brooklyn Steppers: In 1989, the Brooklyn Steppers began life as the Jackie Robinson Steppers Marching Band. In the past 24 years, they have performed at major events, such as the NY Mets, NY Knicks, The United Nations, from ABC to MTV and for President Obama's 2009 Inauguration Parade. Through the marching arts activity, not only does the Brooklyn Steppers stimulate the cultural palette of its participants, we engage them in extraordinary opportunities that will lead them along the road to maturity and academic success. The Brooklyn Steppers helps young people develop a better understanding of their cultural environment, while promoting community awareness and civic involvement.
From Me: Thank you in advance from the bottom of my heart! I will personally send a thank you gift to show how much I appreciate it. Please leave notes after you show your support.
Always and Love,
