This time of year I am normally helping out at my YMCA with their Partners With Youth campaign, sitting in a phone bank with other volunteers, calling people in the community asking for donations to help their cause.

This is a charity that helps provide funding for kids whose family can’t afford to put them into programs like before and after school care, swim lessons, or summer camp. In some cases this care is vital in making it possible for their parents (or parent) to be able to go to work. In other cases it makes it possible for kids to get to continue in those programs while their families get past a brief challenging time, like unemployment. One thing I like about this program is that it helps people right here in my neighborhood and community. Also that they are so efficient with the money. Over 95% goes directly to the need. I have been giving to this charity for many years. Then a few years ago, I found myself on the receiving end. My daughter has been going to the Y summer camps since about age 6. She just loves it and it would have been hard to tell her one summer that she couldn’t go. Fortunately Partners With Youth was there for us.

That time has past, and since then I have been able to resume contributing my time and money to the program. This year my business has been very successful. But my work has taken me on the road a lot and with all the travel I have not been able to help out working the phones to call for donations. So instead I will leverage what small influence I have in social media to try to help these kids. Please visit my official Donor Page and make a contribution. Even if it is just $5, it makes a huge difference. “How do you eat an elephant? One bite at a time.” How to I make my donor goal? One dollar at a time. On behalf of the kids you will help, I thank you!
