BENEFITING: Love Hallie Foundation
We are living in turbulent times. Young people are worried and wondering if and how they can meaningfully make a difference.
LOVE, HALLIE addresses their fierce wonderings. Through our programs, young people identify the causes they care about, and become active, long-term participants in the good fight.
Hallie Geier, who died shortly before her 12th birthday, left behind more than 1000 pieces of writing stressing the importance of kindness, the “superpower” of empathy, and her powerful desire for the chance to “do something special.”
Hallie’s writings are galvanizing, and lay out a hopeful vision for the future. Hallie didn’t get to fulfill this vision in her lifetime, but her legacy is a call to action.
For her 8th birthday, Hallie asked for "encouraging gifts."
With your encouraging gifts:
- We will develop physical and online gathering spaces to connect young people to causes, organizations, and other individuals who can help them make effective change
- We will share Hallie's story and writings through books and videos, and
- We will update and create new tools and resources to help young people improve their communities and the world.
We are small, our task list is giant, and this is an urgent moment. Without your help, we can’t extend our reach and fulfill a critical mission.
Your contribution to LOVE, HALLIE now is an investment in our future, helping young people get and stay engaged in making a better world.
We hope you'll join us, and that you'll visit lovehallie.org to get to know the organization -- and Hallie!
