As many of you know, for the past year and half I’ve been involved in a youth mentoring organization called Explore Austin. This program has been instrumental in helping underserved kids (our “Explorers”) not only learn team building and leadership skills, but also experience many “firsts” in their lives -
A first adult role model outside of their own family, a first community service project, a first mountain summit, and even overcoming a first failure.
Explore Austin is an incredibly life changing program and pushes the girls we mentor to dig deep within themselves and find the strength and courage that lives in each of them. In just one year, we have seen great personal growth in our girls. We are helping them become leaders and confident in their abilities.
On behalf of Explore Austin, I am asking you to consider making a gift to my Rally page supporting Explore Austin’s 2012 Annual Fund. With your help, I hope to raise $2,500 to pay for an entire year of program costs for 1 Explorer.
This provides: 9 professionally guided Saturday Excursions, a week-long adventure trip in Colorado, 1 plane ticket, and all the gear and supplies needed to change a life
Thank you for your consideration of donating to Explore Austin! I’m grateful for your support.
