Help me win $25,000 for City Year this holiday season.
Mozilla Firefox just launched an awesome campaign where me and other celebrities will be pitted up against each other and the charity that raises the most money gets $25,000 to their cause, and I want City Year to win that money.
Many of us continued through school until graduation because we had a great support system, but did you know that every 26 seconds, a student gives up on school in America? City Year corps members serve as tutors, mentors and role models to help students stay on track – and get back on track – to graduate.
This year, City Year’s 2,000 young leaders, who are 17 to 24 years old, will complete nearly 3 million hours of service through the following activities:
- Tutoring, mentoring and serving as role models to help children and schools succeed
- Leading after-school and school vacation programs
- Engaging students of all ages in community service and leadership development activities
- Planning and leading transformational service projects
In order to continue these services and provide additional ones, City Year needs the proper funding and that's why we need to win the 25k for them.
Please join me and give the gift of a donation to City Year for the holiday and help us win the Mozilla Firefox Challenge. You can even send these really great e-gift cards with your donation to a friend or family member. That way they'll be receiving the gift of a donation in their name.
**Also, if you donate or raise $59, you’ll automatically get entered to win a visit to the Arrested Development set with me. For real. The prize doesn’t include travel, room and board. Official rules are below. **
Thanks for everything & Happy Holidays,
