Hi, I am Jack LeGrow. I'm assuming by your presence on this page, you know me or of me to some degree. To give you some background, I am fifteen years old and a freshman at Campbell High School in Smyrna, Georgia. Since August of 2015 I have been a member of the Leader's Club at my local YMCA. As of December 2016, I have been president of this club. In our club, we look to expand our influence in the community and become leaders. One paramount part of being a leader is helping those who are in need. In my club, we spend much of our time serving the community and reaching out to those in need. Recently, I was given the opportunity to become part of the Metro Atlanta Teen Global Leadership Program. After an interview, I was accepted into the program on one of three trips, mine being to the Republic of Georgia in Eastern Europe. On this trip, several other teens and I will be working with teens in Georgia to run a camp with sports and other activities for young children. In Georgia, many children don't have the opportunities and commodities that we have in the United States. Working with them and providing leadership will have a profound influence on their lives.
One of the fundamental parts of this trip is to personally raise money to cover the expenses. To do this, I need your help. It is not a small feat, but every donation made, small or large, makes a significant difference. Your contributions will be going towards a very particular cause and to those very much deserving of our help. I can assure you that every dollar donated will have an impact on the lives of the kids I will be spending my time with while in Georgia.
The YMCA of Metro Atlanta makes a huge impact in our local community - every day. I'm proud to be a Y Champion to ensure more kids, teens, and families have access and opportunity to be a part of the Y. I am asking you to support me in my efforts to help give ALL people the opportunity to reach their full potential through Y programs.
Every dollar donated to this campaign will have a lasting impact on the people of the Republic of Georgia by ensuring that no one is turned away from the Y - regardless of ability to pay.
Please join me and support the Y by making a tax deductible donation today by clicking the DONATE NOW button on the right. Your gift will truly make a meaningful difference in the lives of those who need the Y most.
