Hey everyone! You all know how much I love Venice Beach and giving back to my community. This year instead of bringing a gift or beverage to my birthday party I thought it would be a great idea to invite you to make a donation to a charity (don't worry I'll be providing all of the party drinks!) I recently became involved with Safe Place for Youth (http://www.safeplaceforyouth.org/) in Venice. According to the LA Housing Authority’s 2015 Homeless Youth Count report, there are approximately 6,150 homeless youth on the streets any given night in LA County. Safe Place for Youth provides a safe and supportive environment for many of these young adults. Their programs include street outreach, drop-in services, case management, health and wellness, and education and employment programs. Whatever you can give will go a long way. If you'd prefer or also like to donate old clothes/books/household items/etc. that will also help a lot and I'll be setting up a donations box at my party. Can't wait to see you all on Saturday, don't forget your wigs!
