There are over 1 million estimated homeless youth across the country, each year. And the homeless youth in your community may seem low in numbers or even non-existant, but they are there and they are real. Many have fled from a broken home situation. They left because the physical or emotional pain is just too much for them to bear, and they didn't know what else to do. These kids will often times feel alone, and that there is no help. But, they aren't alone, and there is more help than they know. Harbor House is an organization that aids kids in these scenarios, and I am participating in their first ever 'Sleep Out' event. This event is scheduled for Friday, June 6th, with my goal being of raising at least $250. This event and the proceeds will go to raising the awareness of this problem in our community and across the country, as well as aiding the homeless children with food, water, shelter, etc.
Although I am partaking in the sleep out, this event cannot be a success without your help. Donate what you can, even if it's only a dollar or two, it will go a long way.
These homeless youth are our future. And right now, you are theirs. You want to show them that there is hope and goodness out in the world. You want to show them that the home life they are escaping from is not all there is in the world. They don't have to be scared or sad or down. With your donation and your support, you are giving these kids a second chance at seeing the world. Help them grow up to be optimistic and happy. Your donation today, may result in these kids growing up to be successful in their field of education or business, then they give back to their community, tenfold.
Thank you for taking the time to read this. - Nick Di Giacomo
