Jenn's Penguin Plunge!

THE STORY:

I will be plunging into the very cold Atlantic Ocean on January 1, 2017 to raise funds for You Gotta Believe's mission of connecting older youths in foster care with permanent families that will love them unconditionally. More than 400,000 children are in foster care in the US and every year as many as 25,000 of them will age out of the foster care system. In NYC alone, more than 1,000 young people will age out of the foster care this year. YGB is one of the few organizations in the U.S. and the only one in NYC that focuses on finding permanent parents and families for young adults, teens, and pre-teens in the foster care system. I am honored to be part of the YGB organization and proud of my co-workers' commitment to YGB's mission - it is never too late for family!
