BENEFITING: LOWER EAST SIDE GIRLS CLUB
I grew up in Canada where I was lucky enough to be exposed and educated on a variety of subjects. The extracurricular activities I embraced gave me my curiosity and passion for art, literature, quality of food and drink, science, music and all kinds of culture. While I lived in the NYU world of the East Village for 13 years, I would cross paths with many overly entitled people. It wasn’t until I moved to the LES, a couple of years ago, that I realized inner city kids just don’t have the same benefit. I met some of the young females with so much potential that just didn’t have the same kind of access. LES Girls Club is an outlet. They give them the platform to obtain the tools to become strong and intelligent women. We need to support these kinds of efforts for children, they’re our future. I want to raise at least $1500 for them to continue on with these types opportunities.
