I've dedicated the past three years of my collegiate career to this cause. From serving on both the Board of Directors and the Executive Board, I've seen the hard work and dedication that goes into this cause—all to help our kids.
This past March, Jared Leto won the Oscar for Best Supporting Actor for his role as in 'Dallas Buyers Club'. Here is a snippet from my of my favorite accepatnce speeches of all time:
“To all the dreamers out there around the world watching this tonight in places like the Ukraine and Venezuela, I want to say we are here and as you struggle to… to make your dreams happen, to live the impossible… We’re thinking of you tonight.
And this is for the 36 million people who have lost the battle to AIDS and to those of you out there who have ever felt injustice because of who you are or who you love. Tonight I stand here in front of the world with you and for you. Thank you so much and goodnight.”
That's what I'm fundraising for.
For the 12,000 dreamers in the state of Georgia, for the children who would never experience a Christmas morning without our support, and for the smiling and appreciative faces we get to see at every HERO event.
These kids need, love, and greatly appreciate your support.
