EVENT DATE: Jan 01, 2016
I wanted to post once more about this fundraiser for the adoption agency that taught us parenting classes over the last year. The contributions on my page are NOT for Mark & I. I am part of the team raising the funds. The amazing nonprofit is called You Gotta Believe (YGB). They have been helping older foster youth find homes and teach parents about the importance of “forever homes” for teens in the foster system. Their philosophy is unique and powerful because they focus on this much underserved group of teenage adoptees. Mark & I made some good friends through the parenting classes and the instructors themselves who are living what they teach. It’s eye opening for any potential parent.
If you have last minute funds that your accountant has recommended you part with, please consider my You Gotta Believe campaign. The gifts are tax deductible. If I can raise $1000 by midnight on the 31st, I promise to put on that YGB penguin costume and polar plunge on Coney Island for the 2nd year. Please note, I will be at a party on the 31st but swear I will rise and shine to plunge if I meet this goal. This way too important. Regardless, please give what you can. Anything can help.
It’s a fun way to start the new year. I hope you can help.
Have a Blessed New Year!
Shane & Mark

This an exciting year coming up. Mark and I will be adopting soon. We finished our classes from this great organization. Please take a moment to give $10, $20 or more to this great cause. I'll be plunging into the cold waters of Coney Island again this year. Please join me virtually or in person on Jan 1.
