Save the Children is a nonprofit organization that raises money for kids in need of anything from a place to stay to being reconnected with their families. In the US, Save the Children provides support in the following areas: advocating for children’s needs, helping kids from low-income families get ready for school, providing relief and recovery at times of disaster, and promoting kids’ social and emotional wellbeing. Save the Children also has global programs that address issues like health and nutrition, education, protecting children from violence and other hardships, emergency relief, and hunger.
I have chosen to raise money for Save the Children for many reasons. First, I could not even imagine being in the shoes of a kid in a natural disaster or being separated from my family. Another reason I chose Save the Children is because it supports a variety of programs that help children in many places with many different problems. Lastly, Save the Children has a great reputation for spending donated money wisely, and 90% of every donation goes directly to helping children and buying supplies for them.
I will be doing a 30-mile bike ride on the East Bay Bike Path in Providence, Rhode Island on Sunday October 21st, 2018 to raise money for Save the Children as my Mitzvah project. My goal is to raise $3,600. Please would you consider sponsoring my ride and supporting this important cause!
