THE STORY:

Hi friends, family and anyone who may have stumbled on this page! I got involved with The Chill Foundation for 3 years ago and the impact this program and the youth we serve have had on me is enormous. So now it is time for me to reach out and ask for your help to support his amazing program! Each week in the winter we take youth up to Steven's Pass and help teach them how to snowboard. Some of the highlights for me have been practicing my very rough Spanish with ELL participants or when a young lady tried to tell me getting a boyfriend was easier than learning how to snowboard or when a typically excited, loud bus full of kids was respectfully and attentively listening to the stories of their peers as they candidly shared their struggles- moments like this cut to the heart of what Chill is about. We build community, we build self-confidence, we build a welcoming place where you can let down their guard and best of all, we have fun! A little more about Chill, the foundation was started in 1995 by Jake and Donna Carpenter (founders of Burton Snowboards) and was brought out to Seattle in 1999. Chill inspires youth to overcome challenges through board sports. Through these board sports we focus on our weekly themes : RESPECT, PATIENCE, PERSISTENCE, COURAGE, RESPONSIBILITY and PRIDE. We focus on the resiliency of our participants to help them reach their full potential and see that their current situation doesn't have to define them and there are alternatives beyond the struggles they are dealing with. Through your donations we hope to keep this program free of cost to the youth participants, their organizations and chaperones and to extend the program beyond 6-weeks! There is no donation too small, even $15 will cover the cost of a lift ticket and gear for 1 youth for 1 night! Much love and peace - Lisa
