THE STORY:

Hi All,

I got involved with iMentor last year, and have had a phenomenal experience with both my mentees Brian and Alije. Helping these high school kids navigate the college application process has been rewarding in its own right, and better yet we’ve become genuine friends.  I recognize the cliché, but really do feel like I'm learning more from them than they’re learning from me.

I really don’t like fundraising, but I'm asking for a donation, because this is a cause I really stand behind, and can say with full confidence that this organization is making a meaningful difference.  At the broad level the statistics on mentored student graduation rates are convincing, and at the individual level it's been so neat to make a real connection and help Brian an Alije with the college process.

It’s been a busy month, and I've procrastinated on this - the fundraiser ends soon!  If you feel like helping out, do it as soon as possible.  Any donation you are able to make will be helpful and huge thank you in advance for your support.   

Best, Jim

Doesn't surprise me that they are educating you rather than the other way around ;-) Jesting aside, it's a great thing you are doing and a cause I'm happy to support. 4 years ago
