Hey All! I wanted to spend my birthday a little differently this year and host a charity event that would be able to raise money for a childrens' charity organization. You may wonder what has inspired me to do so - well, for those of you who don't know me, I LOVE working with kids. I recently quit my corporate job to teach English in Italy as a volunteer. I have done mission trips and charity events throughout my life and want to continue making an impact on other peoples' lives. It has always been a dream of mine to make this a priority in my life and I really hope to have you all join me in my first charity event!
Just a little background on why I chose this charity... As I continue my summer abroad, I have been inspired in so many ways. There are so many charities to donate to, but I really wanted something that would benefit children specifically. Teaching abroad has taught me an extraordinary amount about not only myself, different cultures, and different teaching methods, but about kids and working as a teacher. I worked with multiple teachers and two teachers that really stuck out to me, Katie Graves and Emily Goodson, inspired my reason for choosing a school building project for my Charity Event.
When kids go to school, parents and families are looking for a place where their kids will not only learn, but will also be safe. School is supposed to be a safe place- a location where you grow, find yourself, and learn and build lasting relationships. In India, the majority of young girls are looking for places to feel protected and safe while pursuing an education. I am hoping to raise enough money to help them find this safe place in their community. I really hope to achieve this goal with all of your help!
Please join me at Blue Moon in Englewood, NJ on Wednesday 18th, 2018 to help me raise money or donate on Crowdrise! :)
