I have had the privilege of working with Kidsave International for over a decade as a past chairman, current board member and founder of the annual Los Angeles golf tournament, now in its 10th year. Thank you to all of you who have participated and/or sponsored in the past and again this year!
The world has tens of millions of orphans. The U.S. has millions of children without parents, but ours are called "foster children." Whatever the label, these are all children who, no fault of their own, have no adult connections.
When these kids find families, it's magic for everyone involved. When they don't, the outcomes upon emancipation are typically grim - drug and alcohol abuse, crime, prostitution, prison and suicide - all at alarming rates. It's often the difference between these children becoming healthy, productive adults or being homeless and hopeless all of their adult lives.
Kidsave is making a difference. Your support will help them change the lives of hundreds or thousands of these kids.
Here's my request - give what you can, but please give, however small.
This request is going out to over 5000 friends, acquaintances, colleagues, clients and prospects. If everyone gives $10, we can raise over $50,000 for Kidsave. If we all gave $1000, we could raise over $5M and change thousands of lives.
Thank you for your support of Kidsave! Learn more at www.kidsave.org.
