50/50 Take 2: School Uniform Drive

Hello Friends and Family!! 

I'm excited to be gearing up for this year's school uniform drive...50/50 Take 2! With your help, we will once again provide (2) brand new school uniforms to 100 Chicago Public Elementary School students in fragile communities across Chicago. 

Last year, we received 82 donations, raising $4,130 ($76 over goal) within 30 days!! The following is the link to last year's campaign https://www.crowdrise.com/help-50-boys-and-50-girls-in-30-days--school-uniform-drive

This year, we will AGAIN provide 100 children (50 girls/50 boys) with two uniforms and one sweater each. Each child will receive (2) approved uniform bottoms, (2) approved uniform tops and (1) approved uniform sweater. Five schools have been identified and have confirmed the families that will receive the uniforms. 

A small yet practical way to support parents and students in starting off a great academic year, is to help provide their child with clean, well-fitted, presentable clothing. 

We have less than 60 DAYS to make an impact and it starts with a meaningful donation from you: 

$1,000 donation helps EIGHT boys and EIGHT girls with two pair of uniform pants, two uniform shirts and one uniform sweater. 

$500 donation helps FOUR boys and FOUR girls with two pair of uniform pants, two uniform shirts and one uniform sweater. 

$100 donation helps ONE boy or ONE girl with two pair of uniform pants, two uniform shirts and one uniform sweater. 

$40 donation helps ONE girl with one pair of uniform pants, one uniform blouse and one uniform sweater, and helps ONE boy with one pair of uniform pants, one uniform shirt and one uniform sweater. 

$25 donation helps ONE girl with one uniform jumper or skirt and one uniform blouse or ONE boy with one pair of uniform pants and one uniform shirt. Donations of ANY amount are greatly appreciated! 

Deadline to give is the 23rd of August!! 

Uniforms will be distributed to families on August 25th to ensure that students have their uniforms prior to the start of school. 

Thank you once again for your generosity and support!
