Hi.

My name is Brooklyn.
I've been buying pizza for teenagers  for 16 years.

I feel like it's time to invest in the kind that doesn't wreck everyone's intestines.

I'm serious.

I really just want to buy them pizza that doesn't suck.

A bunch of us recently started a church and there isn't a youth ministry budget yet. But I will never not buy pizza for kids. Which means, I'll usually end up being forced to buy crappy cardboard  $5 dollar siutations that leave all of us with nightmares and pizza hangovers. I really just want to get the good stuff, because teenagers are good people. 

I want to buy quality pizza next week.
A good pie or three. It might cost around $40. 
And just so I'm clear, I want to use the money to buy pizza, continuously.

It means a lot to me because supporting teenagers usually starts with simply liking who they are and investing some time and pizza money on them. 

We have the time, just not as much pizza money as we wish.

I'd be sooooo thankful to have the freedom to invest in lunch time pizza, dinner time pizza, any time pizza with the people we like so much--teenagers. 

Thanks for helpng us save childhood from bad pizza $1 dollar at a time.

Yours, 
Brooklyn

I just want to thank the beautiful people who understand the power of pizza in youth ministry--you know that ultimately relationships are the mojo, but pizza is the intro. We're well on our way to having a whole years worth of stress free pizza delivery. You. Are. The. Best. #PizzaPartners

You go ahead and splurge on GF pizza for that student like me who has a sensitive stomach . . . because not only does their story matter, but their stomach health does too. :)

I'm tired of kids being subjected to "crazy hair day" at school, car lines, and mostly...bad pizza. This is a good start to empower our children to be the pizza eaters they were meant to be.

For all the times I ate the $5 pizzas for dinner and breakfast as an intern. May you be blessed!

I said to myself... "I think it would be fun to donate the amount we spent as a family on pizza." Glad we like pizza.

I will gladly give money for teenagers and good pizza. Because both are important. Thanks for knowing that. And do this again, and again, and again if it means connecting with more students. I bet there are lots of us that would keep donating, I sure would.
