Thank you for visiting my fundraising page!
Donating through this website is simple, fast and totally secure. It is also the most efficient way to support my fundraising efforts.
Why I'm doing this:
As many of you know, Manny was this year's Chill assistant coordinator for LA! Through this experience, many kids had the chance to head to the mountain week after week and pick up a sport that they wouldn't otherwise be able to experience. And of course they learned valuable life lessons along the way as well. Their weekly themes consisted of patience, determination, respect and others (and these are just from memory because Manny shared the weekly successes of the program!). i truly believe in the value of this program and would like to see its continued success!
Why I'm asking you to donate:
Chill is a great program and I'm really happy that I was able to observe the inner workings from week to week! Many of these kids are growing up in areas where they can't stay out after dark, can't talk to kids from different blocks, and have limited access to recreational activities. Chill shows them that there are greater things beyond their neighborhoods, and that there are several people willing to help them along the way! Manny was a mentor to these kids throughout the program, and I know that these kids will remember their experiences with Manny, Jen, their instructors and chaperones for years to come! Your donation will help secure funding for the staff, transportation, lift tickets, lessons, and gear.
We greatly appreciate your support for such a fun and worthwhile program! And please remember, every little bit helps - $5 can go a long way!
