EVENT DATE: Jan 01, 2016
I am jumping in the freezing sea again on January 1st! Sharif is going in, too, and Everett will be there in spirit. Sharif has in fact devoted the entire past year advocating for kids in his role as an advocate for YGB and I am so proud of him. He is working with youth and educating the public, workers, child welfare leaders, elected officials and the public about the urgent need for families for kids in care. He has his own page and if you donate to him instead, I won't be hurt. It helps no matter what!
Why do this freezing stunt? Because we ALL need family throughout our lives. This is our mission at You Gotta Believe....to connect young people to parents and families that will love them unconditionally and support them throughout their lives.
It is a tremendous gift to be able to work with youth and families...and to help them connect. Of course, my own life has been transformed a thousandfold since becoming a family in this way and I can't imagine it any other way.
Every contribution toward the cause helps us to raise awareness and supports our incredible team in their work with youth and families. Join me in working to ensure that more young people have a warm and loving family to welcome them home for the holidays next year. The amount doesn't matter - $5, $50, $500 or $5,000. Every single dollar is deeply appreciated!
Thank you so much for your ongoing support of our work!
