Save Lives - Curb Teen Suicide
Jimmy's Kids, a charity started in 1988 that serves 25,000 indigent kids by national youth speaker, Jim Tuman, is expanding its mission.
Teen suicide, teen violence and bullying are at an epidemic crisis resulting in tens of thousands of lost lives of children.
Several of Jim's programs dealing with these topics; Voice of Reason, Circle of Influence and goal programs already have a great track record of 15+ years of success in schools. His new endeavors, such as the national movie "A Girl Like Her" in which he had a role and a PBS documentary on Jim Tuman's work and his fight for solutions, provide great insight and call to action to alleviate these problems.
The goal of $15,000 is to expand these programs to encompass 100 schools. Many programs will be initiated and led by the outstanding high school sophomores who have attended HOBY Leadership Conferences (Hugh O'Brien Youth Leadership).
Because of the day-to-day crisis of these issues, we are looking for immediate donations to hit the ground running in the 2016-17 school year.
We are excited about the challenge and desperately need your help.
Picture this scene: A destitute child sitting alone on Christmas Day without a single gift or minute of joy. Believe it or not, this heartbreaking situation happens to thousands of innocent children every year. But you can change this picture and make a real difference with your support of Jimmy's Kids.
Since 1988, Jimmy's Kids has served the littlest ones, the disadvantaged who would otherwise be forgotten... those who are indigent, physically or emotionally impaired and in some cases, parentless. We operate with hundreds of volunteers to take care of these forgotten kids and families in need. And we don't turn anyone away.
Now, Jimmy's Kids receives requests for help from schools, hospitals, churches, neighborhood associations and families. Our goal is to provide a Christmas to over 25,000 needy children with toys, food and clothing items that spring from your donations. The need is urgent. Please send your contribution today along with the completed donation form and take the opportunity to honor a loved one with a special holiday gift.
