Lindsay actually does charity work?!

THE STORY:

I'm volunteering with AASK as a mentor to Nicole, who is a 15 year-old foster child. Nicole will most likely age out of the foster care system and be responsible for finding her own way, whether it be getting her drivers license (foster kids are no longer allowed to drive at 16), getting a job, applying for college, finding a place to live, etc.

"Special Friends" is a program put together by AASK to match mentors with foster children like Nicole. The success rate of foster children with mentors is astronomically higher than those without when it comes to things such as decreasing rates of teen pregnancy, incarceration, violence, and substance abuse just to name a few.

Why did I pick AASK? Two reasons. Number one, being adopted myself, I'm passionate about giving all children a chance to have a positive childhood. Number two, as you may or may not know, my mom (who passed in 2002) was a juvenile probation officer for over twenty years and worked tirelessly to help children and their families find a better way of life.

I hope you're tearing up. If not, you should feel guilty and donate. If you are, quit crying and donate:)
