THE STORY:

South Bronx United Inc wrote -

Join our cause today! #POWEROF11 Team Captains commit to collecting at least 11 donations of at least $11 each to support South Bronx and immigrant youth!  Click "Fundraise for this Campaign" to set up your page.  Then, email powerof11@southbronxunited.org to get linked up with all Team Captain events and communications.


11 days. Donations of $11 or greater. Raising $60,000 for South Bronx and immigrant youth

11 student-athletes working together on the soccer field. 11 seats in the classroom. 11 mentors for at-risk youth. A team of youth from more than 11 different nationalities. This is the #POWEROF11.

Join South Bronx United for the first #POWEROF11, our biggest annual campaign ever!  Starting on International Children’s Day on June 1 through June 11, hundreds of grassroots supporters will join SBU and our Team Captains for a movement to empower immigrant youth and families through soccer, education, mentoring, and more.

And, we have a matching gift challenge. Thanks to the generous support of the William E. Simon Foundation and several anonymous donors, every donation in the #POWEROF11 campaign will be matched, dollar-for-dollar, up to $30,000!  If we meet our goal, this will mean $60,000 for SBU programs—but we must get there by June 11th!

SAVE THE DATE
Join SBU Team Captains and supporters for the #POWEROF11 Campaign Closing and USA Watch Party on Sunday, June 11, 7:30pm - 10:30pm at Dewey's Pub (135 W 30th Street New York, NY 10001)! We will be watching the USA Men's National Team face Mexico in World Cup Qualifying.
