Please Support a Great Cause

I am very excited to be fundraising for the Life is Good Playmakers again this year, and hope that you can all help me reach my goal! Last year, I raised over $700 for the Playmakers, and I am setting my goal even higher this year at $1,000. I hope I can reach it!

As you all know, I am a teacher in New York City and absolutely love working with children. Throughout my years in the classroom, I have seen the amazing effects that play and positive learning experiences can have on children. That is why I am so in love with the Life is Good Playmakers. Here is some more information about the Playmakers and my fundraising efforts:

Millions of our nation's youngest children experience profound suffering in many forms — domestic violence, abuse, neglect, natural disasters, extreme poverty, or severe illness.  Consumed by fear and powerlessness, traumatized children stop playing, connecting and experiencing joy in the world around them. Early childhood trauma devastates young lives and shortens life expectancy.  

I am fundraising for The Life is good Playmakers, who are providing innovative training and support to preschool teachers, early child care providers, Child Life Specialists, social workers, and adults working directly with kids who are struggling to overcome early-childhood trauma. 

My fundraising efforts are part of the 2011 Life is good Festival, which is a fundraiser taking place this September 24th and 25th.  With fundraising activities like Life is good's Backyard Challenge, arts and live music on three stages, 30,000 fundraisers are coming together to celebrate the positive impact we are having on the lives of kids. 

Please make a donation that will help support the front-line heroes who work every day to restore the greatest gifts of childhood — playfulness, joy and optimism — to a generation of hurting children.

If you would like to make a donation, please visit my donation page here. Thank you for your support in reaching my goal! Remember, every penny counts and no amount is too small a donation. 

I will be posting about my fundraising efforts several times over the next few months, so please bear with me if my posts get a bit repetitive. Remember, it is for a great cause!
