My Fall 2018 charity is Together Rising. They are hard at work to reunite families that have been separated at the border. As they put it - "You see suffering in your community and around the world. You want to help, but don't know where to turn. Turn to Together Rising to transform heartache into action." I have been heartbroken over the families that have separated - in some cases parents deported without their children. Read HERE to learn what specifically Together Rising is doing to help reunite these families.
Summer 2018 Charity: Alzheimer’s Association - $2,075!! Thank you!!
By coming to class and cleaning out your change bin YOU made this possible! I am so grateful for all of you and beyond proud that we were able to give $2,075 to the Alzheimer's Association!
We worked with RivALZ who spent all summer competing in fundraising and finishing off with a flag-football game. It was a gift to work with these women who in total raised over $200,000! The day was made even more meaningful with a dedication to my grandmother, Sophia Gernes.
