I’m a program director for Full Circles Foundation, a non-profit based in Raleigh, North Carolina that aims to create and implement girls’ empowerment programming to girls facing structural obstacles to realizing their full potential.
In other words, we put on empowerment-centered summer camps every year where girls learn how to have a strong self, how to be a strong neighbor, and how to create a healthy earth.
Our girls are ages 5-17 and often come from families facing poverty, abuse, substance abuse, etc. I wholeheartedly believe in the power of the work that we’re doing, as well as the amazing gifts our girls offer the world. I have been personally blessed with the opportunity to spend my summers with these girls, and I am thankful, every day, that I have the opportunity to share my life with them.
However, we need every bit of help we can get when it comes to fundraising! Our campers come on scholarship, because we want to give these opportunities to girls who otherwise might not have them. For some perspective, $5 will provide one day of breakfast and lunch for one camper, $10 will cover bus fare for one week for a camper using public transit, and $500 will cover one camper’s entire summer expenses. You can donate as much or as little as you can spare! Every little bit helps.
If you can’t donate, please signal boost this post and tell your family and friends! Tis the season!
