WE did it! Thank you from the bottom of my heart to all of you who donated and helped spread this cause.
I really want you guys to know that you did not help me make a difference. You made a difference. You are going to be a part of these kids' lives.
All of you are going to be in my prayers for the upcoming future. The only suggestion I make to you all is that whenever you see a cause that you want to support, support it! It is truly a blessing to have the ability to give back so take full advantage of it.
A special thanks to everyone who shared the cause and/or donated while I was gone. I cannot thank you guys enough.
The donations are due June 1st so this is the last push! Keep plugging and God bless!
Hey everyone. These next two weeks are crucial because I will have limited access to a computer. I need you guys to be my voice. Some are going to donate twice but all I ask is that you keep this cause known. Facebook, twitter, email, talking...anything! Thank you guys so much. God bless
This summer NYCUP is teaming up with the organization Operation Exodus Inner City. Their mission includes promoting educational achievement and leadership skills to the young Latino community in Washington Heights. I have landed an internship with this partnership and have the opportunity to help! I will be helping these children review their school material, prepare them for the upcoming school year, and give them a new and positive outlook on education.
We often cannot help but believe that there is nothing we can do for these children. They are already 3 to 5 grade levels behind in their studies, attend schools with a sub 40% graduation rate, all in combination to their life in poverty. But I am telling you that Operation Exodus is really making an impact. There are countless stories of childrens' lives being completely transformed through this organization. It is never too late to make a difference and WE have the opportunity to do just that!
In order for this to happen I will need to fundraise $2500. Your donation will help NYCUP and Operation Exodus continue their mission in serving others. I know we all struggle financially but I just ask you to give these kids a second chance in school. Their surroundings tell them that they are not good enough and will never succeed. EVERYONE deserves a good education and a fair chance at life. You can make that happen! Even if you can donate a single dollar or simply just share this message, I will be forever grateful to you.
If you can not donate, share on your facebook, twitter, tumblr, and/or email. It's FREE and painless. And after receiving donations from complete strangers all I can say is that simply sharing can make a real difference!
****5% of every donation through "GoFundMe" is given to the website, =(. If you want ALL of your donation to go to the kids and/or if you cannot donate through "GoFundMe" but would still like to give, please visit THIS LINK. You search the name "Jaryd Regner" and I should come up. If you have any questions on this process please contact me!
If you have any questions, feel free to contact me through facebook, email, phone, etc.
