Do you remember the person in your life who gave you a chance at success?
You can be that person for Idaho kids this Thursday, May 7. Join us for Idaho’s biggest one-day, state-wide fundraising event—Idaho Gives!
Your gift today is a lifeline to kids on the edge, kids like Emily, for example. At 14, she’s already seen more violence at home than most of us see on TV. She’s lonely, hurt, scared, and trying to cope with all that pain by acting more like 20 than 14 and looking for love—but in all the wrong places. She’s starting to take risky chances with guys much too old for her, getting used and exploited, and on a dangerous path toward disaster.
With your support, Emily will get the help she needs to face and heal the pain she’s running from. Instead of self-sabotage, she’ll find healing, hope, self-respect, and a path to a promising future.
Here’s how you can be part of the IYR promise to Idaho kids:
Spread the word. Forward this email along to family and friends and ask them to join you in giving on May 7.
What’s more, your donation on May 7 has the potential to be multiplied many times over thanks to generous contest prizes and matching awards that will be given out throughout the day.
Thank you for helping us change kids’ lives!
