Pride Lasts a LifetimeAnnouncements & Press Releases . Events & Holidays . News . Video
I am working on the Easter Holiday Appeal for the Pride Lasts Foundation and in doing so I am reflecting on the needs of some of the kids we are trying to support. These are not kids that are starving or typically even homeless so the question begins to form why should we be interested in these kids? It is a good question. I came across this very poignant video, featured below, that really puts things in perspective on who needs immediate help. But there is a but that answers my original question, why these kids? The answer is actually pretty simple: contagious. We should help these kids because Pride is contagious and the more these kids believe in themselves the more they will do with their lives and the more they will develop the propensity to help others.
We are looking to make a small splash that will have a ripple effect on society. It is our belief that while helping these kids we are potentially having a bigger impact. That is not to say that this is a more Nobel cause or that we should forget the plight of the truly destitute, we should not. Help us increase the the potential of these children who are already struggling to make a better life for themselves. Helping those who demonstrate a desire to improve themselves IS a Nobel endeavor, for they improve us and our society and perhaps more important they serve as proof to their peers that they can succeed. We do it because their future is worth it.
If we do not support these children then the facts in the video I mentioned before will always remain just that, the facts.
Perhaps this is the beginnings of a strange appeal letter!
