LOOK. AT. THIS. KID! ====>>>>>
See the piercing blue eyes? The orange hair cut in the most fashionable of fashions? The naive virtuousness of that smile? How could you ever refuse anything this little tub of cute asked for? I don't know either.
Fourth grade Mason wants you to dig deep in your pockets, search under the couch cushions, put off buying the next Real Housewives of Atlanta DVD box set, use some of the bourbon money you've hidden behind the flour in the pantry and DONATE TO THE YMCA!
I was a Y kid. I played soccer at the Y and I went to YMCA summer camp. Like thousands of kids every year in the Atlanta area, the Y gave me opportunities I wouldn't otherwise have experienced.
Donating to the YMCA helps give all kids, teens, and families access and opportunity to be a part of the Y – regardless of ability to pay. I am asking you to join me in my efforts to give all people in our community a chance to reach their full potential at the Y.
The YMCA of Metro Atlanta has been helping kids reach thier potential for over 160 years. 160 years! That's back before the internet, even before color TV! The Y works to ensure local kids have the help they need to prepare for kindergarten, stay on-track in school, grow as leaders, and learn how to contribute to thier community. Through wellness and hunger relief programs, the Y helps people of all ages stay active and healthy. But, the Y needs your support of the WHY IT MATTERS Annual Giving Campaign to make this possible.
100% of every sweet, tax deductible** dollar donated has a lasting impact on the people of our local community by ensuring the Y’s doors are open to all – regardless of financial ability.
I don't want you to give until it hurts, that's cliche. I want you to give to the point right before it starts hurting. Give until you get that tickle on your neck that tells you "I think if I give more it might hurt." Give to that point and your gift will truly make a meaningful difference in the lives of those who need the Y most. Thank you, and stay awesome!
