by Athletes for Charity

Dear Friends & Family:

I have been volunteering for Athletes for Charity for as long as I can remember because the Founder of the organization, Ms. Laporte, is my next door neighbor.  Often time when I was little, I preferred going over to help Ms. Laporte with the many projects she would have going on which included organizing books to give away to local schools and going shopping at Staples and packing up school supplies to send to children in Haiti.  She always gave us books and had us
 participate in essay writing or drawing contests in order to win prizes.  I especially remember her helping me and some of the other children in our neighborhood once to organize a soccer tournament and donation drive to donate the funds to Make a Wish Foundation, after Ms. Laporte had showed me a video about a Make a Wish child being granted a wish.  My myself, my little brother and our friends, all organized a soccer tournament in my driveway and asked our neighbors and family members to donate. NY1 News even came and interviewed us.  I think we ultimately raised nearly $250 within a few hours then someone from the Make a Wish office came to my house to pick up our decorated donation box.  It was an amazing experience and we were so excited that the money would go towards helping to Make a Wish for another child.  

For the past 2 summers, I have served as an Intern for Athletes for Charity conducting research, helping to create databases and managing one of the Twitter accounts for the organization. Working with Athletes for Charity makes me feel great to know that everything we do goes towards helping underprivileged youth.  A few weeks ago I even did a presentation about Athletes for Charity in my Business Administration class.  I had to conduct a lot of research about running a non-profit and interviewed Ms. Laporte to learn more about why she chose to start the organization back in 2004.

I am reaching out to ask all of you to please join me in raising $1000 to support Athletes for Charity in our efforts to benefit underprivileged and disadvantaged youth.  Our goal is to use the funds to adopt a grade level in one of the schools in Queens, NY and to do the same at a school in Detroit, MI that has a high population of immigrant Bangladeshi students. We will purchase STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering and Math) themed books to donate to all of the students and also host a STEM essay or drawing contest for the students to win cool prizes such as LEGOs.

I would like to ask you to consider making a donation to support the my Fundraiser to raise $1000 to help purchase the Books and LEGOs for KIDS!!

No donation is too small!  $5 will help us buy a new STEM book for a student.

Your donation is fully tax-deductible.

Thank you for your time and consideration!
