On August 20, 2013, 870 children waited in fear as their elementary school rushed into lockdown mode. A gunman armed with an AK-47 was in the office with hundreds of rounds of ammunition. Would the nation face yet another school shooting story of tragedy? Who would be there to talk him down and save nearly a 1,000 lives? On that day, God chose me, Antoinette Tuff, for the job. The Ronald E. McNair Discovery Learning Academy did not sustain any injuries or fatalities when under siege by a gunman.
Since that faithful day, I have written my book Prepared For A Purpose and started a non-profit organization called Kids on the Move for Success. Kids on the Move for Success is helping every day students all over the world to have an educational opportunity that they would not receive on a normal basis. We strive to provide underprivileged children the educational opportunities to see the world through a new set of eyes. If you change their vision, you can change their lives! Thanks to the generosity of you supporters, we have been able to give out our first round of scholarships to deserving students this year.
Kids on the Move for Success along with its sponsors will be hosting the 1st Annual Antoinette Tuff Celebration of Heroism to commemorate the life changing experience that prepared me for my greater purpose. I would like to invite you to participate in the various events that will take place during the four day celebration from August 17th thru August 20th in Atlanta, Georgia. Please visit www.kidsonthemoveforsuccess.org and sign up for our mailing list in order to receive updates and information about these events. I would be honored if you would purchase a t-shirt to commemorate this joyous occasion. All of the proceeds from our T-Shirt Booster campaign will be used to fund additional scholarships. Please visit www.booster.com/kotmfs to order your shirts today. We only have 12 days left in the campaign and we have not met our goal of 50 shirts. Thank you for your support!
Hello friends and family. It's been a while since my last update but that's because I have been busy working on developing scholarship programs and my non-profit organization Kids on the Move for Success. Thanks to your generosity and support we have given out our first scholarships this year with more to come. Please tell your friends and family to visit the website www.kidsonthemoveforsuccess.org for scholarship and other opportunities for children. Thank you and God bless you!
The mission of Kids on the Move for Success is to provide underprivileged children with scholarships and educational travel opportunities to see the world through a new set of eyes. If you change their vision, you can change their lives! In an effort to accomplish the mission, Kids on the Move for Success will provide scholarships for college education to bright students with demonstrated financial need. Kids on the Move for Success will also provide scholarships for educational field trips such as college tours, educational and leadership seminars, mentoring programs and study abroad programs.
