2 people have donated $500 towards this campaign's $500 Goal
This year, I have chosen to support Together We Rise in changing the way youth navigate through the foster care system with my online fundraiser. At any given time, there are approximately 430,000 foster youth in the U.S. with 1,200 new youth entering the system each day. Foster youth often have to face new and unfamiliar environments with little warning or preparation. On average, a child will move foster homes 4-6 times while in the system. Youth navigating this system can often lack a sense of normalcy or feelings that they can completely be themselves. Most foster youth do not have many possessions or have access to typical childhood activities. Together We Rise helps foster youth gain back this piece of their childhood by providing them with resources that they can call their own. By donating to my campaign, you will be joining supporting foster youth in regaining a source of joy and normalcy. We appreciate your efforts and desire to help transform how youth navigate the foster care system in our community.
