Help me win $50,000 for City Year this holiday season. Donate and join my fundraiser and help me raise more money than all these other fundraisers here and we'll win it.
Many of us continued through school until graduation because we had a great support system, but did you know that every 26 seconds, a student gives up on school in America?
City Year AmeriCorps members provide the extra care and attention students need to stay on track to graduate.
This year, our 2,500 City Year corps members, who are between the ages of 17 and 24, will #makebetterhappen in schools and communities across the country by completing over 4 million hours of service.
Working side-by-side with teachers and students, corps members:
• Tutor, mentor, and serve as role models to help children and schools succeed
• Lead after-school programs
• Plan and lead transformational physical service projects
In order to continue these services and support the children of our communities, City Year needs the proper funding and that's why we need to win the $50k for them.
Please join me and give the gift of a donation to City Year for the holiday and help us win the Mozilla Firefox Challenge. See City Year corps members #makebetterhappen by following @CityYear on Twitter and visiting makebetterhappen.org.
Thanks for everything & Happy Holidays,
