UPDATE 12/1/17: Thanks to you, we raised $37,000 this #GivingTuesday, surpassing our goal by nearly 50%. Your donations will go towards providing Child Advocates for children who arrive on our doorstep, on their own. Your gifts will allow us to fight for their rights, for their best interests, to make sure that wherever they land, they will be safe.
We thank you for standing with the Young Center.
ORIGINAL 11/28/17: Happy #GivingTuesday! #GivingTuesday is a global day of giving in which millions of people come together to support the causes they believe in.
This year, with your help, the Young Center aims to raise $25,000 to provide Child Advocates for immigrant children across the country. Your contribution will make such a difference—for a 12-year-old girl from Guatemala, a 5-year-old boy separated from his mother, a 16-year-old girl fleeing a forced marriage. Please lend us a hand by making a donation in any amount.
Thanks to the generosity of board members, staff, and early donors, your #GivingTuesday donations will be matched up to $8,000—$10 becomes $20, $50 becomes $100, $250 becomes $500.
This #GivingTuesday, make your message loud and clear: every child deserves to be safe.
