ADVOCATES FOR ADOLESCENT MOTHERS' Fundraiser:

Technology to Fight Poverty

ADVOCATES FOR ADOLESCENT MOTHERS' Photo

THE STORY:

Advocates for Adolescent Mothers is a top-rated grassroots nonprofit that has an antipoverty mission. We work with families headed by young mothers to empower them to break the poverty cycle and prevent child abuse. We provide financial support and mentoring to young mom college students to help them graduate college as a measure to overcome poverty. We also distribute toys and outerwear to homeless young moms and their children at Christmas.

Our successes include awarding more than $3100 to deserving young mom college students since 2011. Our first 2 young moms graduated from college in the spring of 2015. We have also distributed more than 1200 toys and approximately 700 coats to homeless and underprivileged youth since 2011. We are requesting donations for a new and modern laptop, pertinent software, and printer.

We need to replace a laptop that is outdated and is an impediment to our productivity and efficiency due to slow speeds, limited space, equipment weight, and size. We would like to upgrade to a lightweight, 2-in-1 laptop (i.e. it doubles as a laptop and tablet) that supports heavy multi-tasking, has a processor of i5 or i7, 6GB or more of RAM, has 1TB or more of hard drive (solid state), and has a battery life of 4 hours or more. We would of course need to purchase pertinent computer software, most especially, MS Office and QuickBooks. We would also like to upgrade to a multifunctional printer with feed that has wifi capability.

The new laptop and printer will be very helpful for us as a grassroots nonprofit because it will help us to get more work done in a shorter period of time, which will be a great gift for us since we have few volunteers tasked with delivering important services to the youth we serve.

We invite you to learn more about our history, activities, performance, and goals by visiting our website. We are hoping to reach our fundraising goal of $3500 before April 30, 2016. Donations made to Advocates for Adolescent Mothers are tax-deductible to the fullest extent of the law.

We welcome contributions of any size. Looking forward to your support!

Thank you!
