My Joyful Heart helps children in the Chicago area who are living far below the poverty line. These children need our help and we are dedicated to #BringHope to each and every one of them. We are extremely responsible with every dollar we receive -- 95% of each and every donation goes directly to help the kids.
You may wonder about our very specific goal of $11,400. For those of you who were told there would be no math today, the short answer is that we are hoping you will donate $20 to purchase items, such as a coat or hat/gloves, for each child that does not have a sponsor.
If you're looking for a more scientific answer: we started with the 680 children currently enrolled. Of that, only 123 are sponsored by good people just like you. The remaining children in our program (that would be 557 kids) would benefit greatly from $20 per child for 2014. So we put 557 and 20 into this magical machine and it calculated $11,140, which is really a lot of money. So we broke it down into a manageable amount, like $20, and are asking you to consider pledging toward our really large goal.
After all, having a large goal is better than a small one. Right? And donating money to kids who need your help can help give you a smile all year long. So keep showing us those pearly whites and grin yourself silly :-D
