Family and Friends,
As you all know, in my day job I do national policy and advocacy work to support kids experiencing homelessness or at-risk of homelessness. In my free time, I volunteer with Bright Beginnings - a nonprofit that operates a child and family development center for homeless children whose families are in crisis shelters or transitional housing in Washington, DC. The center offers free, full-day, year-round and developmentally-appropriate childcare and early childhood education for children aged six weeks to five years old.
My personal goal is to raise $1,000 for Bright Beginnings this year. I ask for your support - big or small! These kids did not choose to be homeless - let's get them the education they deserve to ensure they enter kindergarten (and life!) ready to learn and succeed!
Thank you for your support,
