Hello family, friends, and donators! We are Ark of Safety and we have been selected by USA TODAY to proceed in the competition to win $25,000, $50,000, or $100,000 for the use in our Box and Ball Mentoring and Tutoring Program!!! There are also financial incentives at the end of every week if you raise the most money for that week. That's why we need your help!
Box & Ball M.A.T is a program designed with youth ages 6-17 in mind. Our goal is to reduce the amount of violent crime in our community from our youth. For this program, we will be training and educating youth in the areas of boxing and basketball as well as providing beginner games/meets for them to compete in across the USA.
As well as our physical component we will also have a mentoring and educational component. Youth will have mentoring provided by our trained staff to help them deal with many conflicts and issues that arise as an at-risk youth. Academics are a top priority for us. We long to see these youth that have been counted out, rise to the occation. So we will be offering tutoring in the core classes. The more funding we receive, the more youth we can reach with life-changing programming.
We couldn't be more excited for this opportunity! However, we need your help. As a final step in the vetting process we are required to raise $3,000 for our organization that will stay with our organization to aide in programming. Our grant sponsor wants to see that we have community support before giving us such a hefty amount.
Will you help us in our endeavor? All you have to do is donate a minimum of $10 OR MORE to our campaign to help us reach our goal of $3,000. Then click the share button and ask your friend's and family to do the same. We are always saying how our inner city youth in Indy need something productive to do and this program is sure to create a positve impact. Let's do this for our youth and community!!!
