Help Us Help Others 2017-18

We, the students of James Lick High School's World History AP and English 2 Honors courses are working together to raise funds for FOUR specific causes:

1. (local) poverty and homelessness relief

To support this cause, we are partnering with these local organizations . . .

*Loaves and Fishes -

*Habitat for Humanity East Bay/ Silicon Valley -

*St. Joseph Cathedral Office of Social Ministry -


2. (local and national) suicide prevention 

To support this cause, we are partnering with the American Foundation for Suicide Prevention, a nationally-recognized and highly-rated organization.

3. (international) Yazidi girls and women

To support this cause, we are partnering with YAZDA, a US-based charity that provides life-saving assistance in the form of immediate medical care and long-term rehabilitation for the the girls and women of a minority group in Iraq known as the Yazidis who have been sexually victimized by the terrorist group ISIS.

4. (international) girls denied education 

To support this cause, we are partnering with the Malala Fund, an international charitable organization founded by Nobel Peace Prize winner Malala Yousafzai that advocates — at local, national and international levels — for resources and policy changes needed to ensure all girls complete 12 years of school, especially in areas where girls have been denied their right to education.

Contributions through this site will be collected until the end of May 2018, and will then be sent to the organizations mentioned above. Any amount of money on your part will be greatly appreciated.

Thank you for your support in making this world a better place.
