Dear Friends, Family and Foes:
STOP THE VIOLENCE MOVEMENT EC is proud to team up with ATHLETES FOR CHARITY to benefit the youth of EAST CHICAGO, INDIANA for this upcoming holiday season!  Our goal is to distribute 100+ gifts to EC Kids on Christmas Day (rain or snow) and we could use your help to make this happen!
Please consider making a donation of any amount between now and December 20th to help us reach $1000 to purchase 100+ gifts for the kids in our community ranging from LEGOs to Barbies, LOL Dolls, and other educational toys such as Snap Circuits and Leap Frog products for the little ones under 2.  Donations made through this site are fully tax deductible to you (you will see a charge from United Charitable on behalf of Athletes for Charity as they are the official 501(c)(3) org).  They will receive the funds and order the product for us to distribute to the kids on Christmas Day and we will be sure to share pictures! 
After we have raise the necessary funds, we will reach out to ask you to inform us of neighbors that you know are struggling this holiday season that could use some help getting some small gifts for their kids this year from Santa.  Toys will be distributed on a first come first to receive basis on Saturday, December 21st from 12 - 2 pm.  Visit www.facebook.com/stoptheviolencemovementec for more details.
If you have any questions feel free to hit myself or Christina up on Facebook or on 219-880-7032.  If you prefer to donate by cash or donate one of the toys on our preferred list, let us know and we can direct you to the person at the East Chicago Library who can collect the cash or product donations.
No donation is too small so if you only have $1 to donate, we will take it.  If we get 1000 people to donate $1 or 100 people to donate $10 by tomorrow, we will have reached our goal.  If we raise more, we will buy more.
Thank you for your time and consideration in your support of our efforts.
