BENEFITING: The New York Foundling
ORGANIZER: The New York Foundling
As you may know, I've been mentoring teens in foster care for the past couple of years and have had the honor of meeting and spending time with some truly incredible girls. These girls have taught me so much about strength and resiliency (in addition to some pretty epic dance moves).
I recently became a member of the Junior Board of The New York Foundling because I see the value and importance of the programs they are providing to the children and families of New York. One program that I find especially meaningful is the Transition to Adulthood program which provides housing and social support to 18-25 year olds who have aged out of foster care and who lack the support system that so many of us take for granted in our transition into adulthood. This program provides housing and social support for these young people to make the transition to responsible, self-sufficient, and compassionate adults.
I've seen first-hand how the generosity of others can make a big difference in a single life. This is why I am asking you to consider making a contribution to The New York Foundling charity this holiday season. No amount is too small to make a difference.
Thank you for your generosity and Happy Holidays to all.
(Nov-30) Thanks to your overwhelming support my inital fundraising goal was met just as Giving Tuesday was coming to an end! The Holiday Charity Challenge continues throughout the holiday season and your donations are going to great cause so I would like to extend the challenge to see if we can absolutely crush the original goal and surpass 150% by 2017. Thanks again for your generosity this holiday season!!
