Coaching Give-Away & Fundraiser
for Youth Literacy
Dear parents and educators,
As the year is coming to a close, I am reaching out with a new opportunity and to ask for your support.
Some of you may know that I am a volunteer board member with Get Lit-Words Ignite, a Los Angeles based education non-profit that's doing valuable work for youth in my community and globally (see video below).
I've seen first hand how this student-centered approach to teaching literacy transforms apathetic teens into highly engaged learners who discover their passion for reading, writing and self-expression. Over the last 15 years, Get Lit's program has graduated over 100,000 high-school students, trained over 500 teachers, and worked in over 700 middle and high schools.
This month Get Lit is hosting their annual fundraiser and my personal goal is to raise $2k - that's the cost of bringing Get Lit's in-class poetry program to two new schools - including curriculum and teacher training.
Thank you in advance for considering making a gift of any size to help support the amazing work of this organization that is so close to my heart! I will email all donors within 24 hours to schedule our session for a time that's convenient for you.
