Anthony Needs Your Help!
Anthony (pictured in our icon) goes to elementary school in Maryland. We met him earlier in the year at one of our Root 53 Healthy Living Workshops. He was so full of energy and curious- a very smart kid looking forward to being a teacher or a fireman one day.
Then we found out that his single mom just lost her job, and one of his biggest needs was a simple backpack filled with school supplies.
Anthony is not alone.
Throughout Nashville, Maryland, Washington DC and around the country, thousands of kids go to school without the proper tools to be successful. They feel embarrassed, helpless, and throughout the years they start to lose hope.
That's why NFL Player Moise Fokou started The Root 53 Foundation -- to provide essential educational support for kids just like Anthony.
Root 53's goal, in the next few weeks, is to raise enough money to purchase 2,000 backpacks. Each backpack is filled with all the school supplies needed to put kids on the right track.
You can directly help a kid like Anthony by donating as little as $20 to purchase one backpack. That one backpack will make a huge difference in his life.
We hope that you can spread the word about our #Root53BackpackDrive to friends, family and colleagues because there are plenty of kids waiting for someone like you to help them.
Thanks in advance for your support!
Moise and the Root 53 Foundation
