THE STORY:

On August 11th, 2012, I will be competing in my first Ironman, where I will be swimming 2.4 miles, biking 112 miles and running a marathon to raise both awareness and valuable dollars for the Robin Hood Foundation, the largest private poverty-fighting organization in New York City.  

I was first introduced to the Robin Hood Foundation in 2009 through a close family friend and have stayed actively involved since then for three key reasons: 1. 100% of every donation goes directly to fighting poverty in New York City. At Robin Hood, the board pays all administrative expenses so every penny donated goes directly to helping New Yorkers in need. 2. Leverage. Gifts are compounded with management and technical assistance from experts and consultants. 3. Evaluation. Robin Hood establishes performance benchmarks and then hires independent evaluators to judge the results, making sure donor dollars are used effectively.

Over the last 23 years, the Robin Hood Foundation has distributed over $1 billion to organizations that can prove they have a positive impact on the lives of low-income New Yorkers. The Robin Hood Foundation is the largest private funder of job training programs in the New York City area, helping nearly 5,000 individuals find and keep work. They have also raised over $12 million dollars to provide social services, jobs and housing for veterans living in poverty in New York City.

Please help me to reach my goal of raising $6,000 to help fight poverty in New York City by CLICKING THE BIG BLUE BUTTON on the top right hand side of this page. Your generosity will help the Robin Hood Foundation reach many of their goals such as finding housing for every single homeless veteran living on the streets of New York City.  

Robin Hood holds steadfast to a single mission: To fight poverty in New York City. To accomplish this, they find, fund and cultivate programs that prove they are most effective at making a positive impact on the lives of our neighbors in need. Thank you for your support!
