Summer of 2012 is for GIVING! Help me raise $25,000 for Rainier Scholars!
Have you ever wondered how you got to where you're at today? Your pursue of a higher education, your diploma, your job, your house...? Many of us are fortunate to have had a great support system growing up. We continued through school until graduation which prepared us to take on "life". We work hard and we persevere in the face of obsticles, right? Perhaps a little bit of luck too?
Did you know that many high potential inner city students could not advance in school due to the lack of economic resources, knowledge and support from their low income and/or newly immigrated families, mentorship, role models, and opportunities?
What is the cause:
Rainier Scholars is an 11-year life-changing education and youth development program for promising students of color, providing a pathway to college graduation and creating future community leaders.
In the four phases of Rainier Scholars program, starting at grade 6, students embark on an intensive 14-month academic enrichment in order to be placed into area's top independent and public schools, then they'll go through ongoing support and leadership development which lasts through the last day of college.
The core values of Rainier Scholars are Perseverance, Integrity, Courage, Hard Work, Commitment, and Support.
The organization needs to raise money to fund the operations...teachers, faculties, books, school buses... Please help keeping this wonderful organization growing!
We can change the lives of many students. Here is how you can help....

- No GIVING is too small, even if it's $10, that's the price of 2.5 Starbucks grande latte (depending on where you are in the world).

I promise your spirit will be instantly lifted through GIVING.
