Thanks for clicking and considering a donation.
I've finally decided to take the plunge into the world of a marathoner, and thought I'd use the opportunity to raise money for an impactful and relevant non-profit in the process.
Teach For America - Hawai'i is dedicated to ensuring that "one day, all children in this nation will have the opportunity to attain an excellent education." Right now, this isn't the reality. Our education system is plagued by inequities that perpetuate the oppressions that dominate our society. At TFA-Hawai'i, we empower teachers to reflect on their identities, their students' and community's needs, and how all of this is impacted by the larger social context in an effort to break down the barriers our children face to becoming their best selves.
With the recent events that have highlighted the social and human rights issues in our country, we need to support our teachers in creating safe spaces for our children to learn and grow. I'm putting myself through an immense amount of pain along with donating $$ in an effort to draw attention... anything you could give ($5, $10, $25, $100, etc...) to help me in this cause would be greatly appreciated.
