THE STORY:

We need your support to help Cairo and Amel's toddler program in Harlem called the Ricardo O'Gorman Garden and Center for Resources in the humanities.

The Garden is a diverse tuition free program that promotes learning, spiritual growth, imagination and self-confidence in pre-school aged children. A key goal they strive towards is preparing young children like Amel and Cairo for entry into public school or placement in an independent school in New York City. We were extremely fortunate to have had the chance to meet and get to know the founder of the school, Ned O’Gorman.

Ned passed away on March 7th, 2014. He was a poet, educator and a tireless advocate for the children of Harlem. Ned had an immediate connection with Cairo and Amel. He engaged them as fellow travelers of life and not as children; he nurtured their love for learning through self-discovery and guidance. His philosophy was that if you let children lead you on their discovery, great things will happen—and the garden school is a place to do that.

The school runs solely on donations and upon Ned's passing, the torch of fundraising has been pasted to the friends and families of The Garden School.  We are pulling together to keep this wonderful free program alive.

We’ve personally seen our children flourish in the program, so as a family we have pledged to raise at a minimum $1000 from our family, friends and colleagues to support the Garden School.

We (Amel, Cairo, Roni and Shawn) ask that you make a donation towards our pledge by May 16th, 2014.

Sincerely,

The Chance Family
