It takes a village to raise our children

Hello, my name is Eric Hughes and I am starting this fundraiser to assist with taking care of children in under served and impoverished communities. The funds raised will help to educate, empower and employ youth around the city of Chicago. This is an initiative that will hopefully start a downward trend in the amount of violence that youth in Chicago has experienced. I am prepared to take the first step in overcoming the violence that has plagued our city for so long, and with your help we can ensure a brighter future for the youth in our communities!
