Thanks for coming to my fundraising page! For the past three years, I've been on the board of an amazing charity based in NYC, Stoked, and we need your help this holiday season--particularly on Giving Tuesday. Stoked empowers under-served youth through action sports (such as snowboarding, skateboarding and surfing), and through after-school and educational support, to create opportunities for a successful future. Since 2005, we’ve served more than 2,500 disadvantaged high school students in New York City and Los Angeles.
Stoked is conducting a fundraising drive timed to coincide with #GivingTuesday, a new national campaign designed to transform the way people think about, talk about and participate in the season of giving. #GivingTuesday is a simple idea: find a way for your family, your community, your company or your organization to join in acts of giving during the holiday season. Tell everyone you can about what you are doing and why it matters.
My Giving Tuesday goal is to raise and contribute $1,000 for Stoked, because of the positive, direct and outsize impact it has on disadvantaged students' lives. Please consider donating to Stoked through this Crowdrise website. Your donation is 100% tax-deductible.
Please also consider attending our primary fundraiser of the year, the 2012 Stoked Awards on Tuesday November 27, 2012 at the Greene Space in SoHo.You can buy tickets to the Stoked Awards at www.stoked.org/stokedawards.
However you can join me, please do. Your contribution will make a huge difference to the youth Stoked serves.
