Paying it Forward: Let's show up for women and girls of color
Welcome to my Personal Page. Please consider making a donation on my behalf to support my fundraising campaign.
As many of you know, my mother passed away when I was younger from congestive heart failure and kidney disease. In honor of my mother, I complete an act of service each year during Mother’s Day Weekend. On Saturday, May 11th, I will be walking in the annual Highmark Walk for a Healthy Community on behalf of the YWCA of Greater Pittsburgh.
This organization is significant to me for many reasons. My father placed me in YWCA summer camps and after-school programs when I was a girl. Despite the chaos of seeing my mother enter and exit the hospital, the YW provided consistency to my young life. This was the place where I made friends, learned how to do my hair, went camping, attempted to learn how to cook, and got homework help. The YW taught me about college, helped me complete my FAFSA, and reviewed my application essays. This organization without a doubt was instrumental in me growing into a leader. I received an abundance of support at little to no cost to my father.
My personal goal is to “friend-raise” $300. I am reaching out because I need your help. Donations as small as $5 are able to be made through my fundraising page. It would mean the world to me!
The YWCA Greater Pittsburgh is dedicated to eliminating racism, empowering women and promoting peace, justice, freedom, and dignity for all. Through programming, the YWCA makes a difference in our Pittsburgh community each day. 100% of the funds raised for the walk go directly to supporting the YWCA's programming.
For every one of my friends that donates, I pledge an act of returning the kindness – whether it be buying you a drink at the next happy hour, a coffee on the next rainy Pittsburgh Monday morning or a slice of pizza on Pizza Fridays, I’ve got you covered.
I appreciate your consideration in advance!
