NOVEMBER 29TH IS
“GIVING TUESDAY” – BE A PART OF IT!!!
Let us hear from you – November 29 is #GivingTuesday – an International Day of Giving.
NFYI is training young people to have an effective voice in their communities. Last summer a group of former foster youth talked about the issues most critical to them. They discovered that homelessness was something nearly all of them had faced; some in the group were actually homeless right then. Prop. HHH, on the ballot in Los Angeles, sought to help end homelessness by raising funds to build 10,000 units of affordable housing. The youth formed the Homelessness Action Committee and began to raise awareness and learn how to register voters – their activism made a difference and on November 8th Prop. HHH passed and is projected to raise $1.2 billion to help house the homeless.
We’re asking all friends and supporters of NFYI to join with us and pledge support, make a donation, volunteer your time – all of these things truly make a difference.
In December young former foster youth from all across the country will attend a leadership training retreat, as we continue to develop our powerful Leadership Corps.
Please lend your support.
Visit our website, www.nfyi.org, to see the many things we are doing and to hear from some of the amazing foster youth who are stepping up to become forceful community leaders.
They need your help and support – so please, share this message with at least 5 other people – and let us hear from you.
You can wait until #Giving Tuesday, next week, or of course, you can GIVE NOW!
Last year more than 45,000 organizations came together to celebrate #Giving Tuesday – resulting in greater donations, volunteer hours, and activities that bring about real change in communities.
YOU CAN MAKE A DIFFERENCE. #GivingTuesday is coming, so GIVE. Thank you.
