If you are looking for an alternative way of gift-giving this year, we have the perfect gift for your loved ones: donate!
Did you know that up to 25% of U.S. students are bullied each year? According to PBS.org, as many as 160,000 students may stay home from school on any given day because they are afraid of being bullied. Our young people are in crisis, more than ever before, and you can help.
Over the 2008-2009 school year, tens of thousands of students were taught about connection, love and respect in Challenge Day workshops. This year, we have 725 programs scheduled already, but there are still many schools that aren’t able to afford this important work due to cuts of already-tight school budgets.
Challenge Day, as a 501(c)3 non-profit, relies on your donations to keep bringing this crucial work to young people all over the country. With your donation, you not only help us to continue awakening young people to the possibilities of acceptance, compassion and understanding, but you will be experiencing the joy of charitable giving!
Your donation is tax-deductible, and makes a great gift! We are happy to send an acknowledgement letter to the person of your choice. To make a donation, please go to our website and Donate Online!. Thank you so much for your continued support. We would not exist without you!
