1000 Butterfly Miracle 2016

Miracles DO happen every day! And today YOU can help make a MIRACLE in the life of an at-risk student by sponsoring beautiful BUTTERFLIES!

On Sunday, November 13th at 2:00pm at Bluff's Park in Malibu, the EMILY SHANE FOUNDATION (www.emilyshane.org ) will release 1,000 BUTTERFLIES in honor of mentors and role models who make miracles in people's lives.

Each glorious California native butterfly is just $10 to sponsor, and all proceeds will benefit the the Emily Shane Foundation's  SEA (Successful Educational Achievement) Program in Los Angeles. This program pairs college students and at-risk middle schoolers for tutoring and mentorship at no charge to the student.

Each hour of tutoring's overhead costs are approximately $10, which is why YOUR SUPPORT IS SO NEEDED to keep these kids in school and succeding. The proceeds from your butterfly sponsorship go directly to the SEA Program. The Emily Shane Foundation (www.emilyshane.org) was founded five years ago in memory of Emily Shane who was killed at 13 years of age by an out-of-control motorist. Her joyous spirit and generosity is being honored by her foundation and the outstanding work being done by the SEA Program.

Please sponsor a butterfly in honor of someone who has made a MIRACLE in YOUR life! Your donation will make YOU the hero for all the students and mentors in the SEA Program!
