BENEFITING: Infinite Family
"Hoodies for the Holidays" is to raise money to buy kids in South Africa a hoodie for the holidays! The Infinite Family organization partners with different sites that have kids and teens who do not have parents or an adult to guide them through childhood and provides mentors to those children to help them build self esteem and thrive in their lives.
This 2014 Holiday Season, as mentors for Infinite Family, we would like our friends and family to join us in letting these children know we deeply care. Your donations go directly to the Infinite Family Organization where hoodies will be purchased on-site in South Africa and delivered directly to the kids.
Infinite Family Mission: To promote self-reliance—to augment what’s taught in the classroom and the home to help develop resilient, responsible, and resourceful students as they prepare for their lives as young adults and beyond.
Inifite Family History: The kids and teens of South Africa are surrounded by generational cycles of violence, ill health, isolation and a lack of opportunity. Our video mentors are role models who help their net buddies break these patterns and build a better life by using technology to step in where there are not enough local role models.
100% of Infinite Family’s mentored students are affected by HIV/AIDS and poverty. They live life day-to-day, amid uncertainty and fear, with little or no adult guidance and support. They are the future of South Africa, yet growing into young adulthood undereducated and ill-equipped to participate in a society that is moving forward rapidly – without them.
