The LittleBigFund continues being awesome….thanks to you!
It is a distinct honor to congratulate Global Youth United as the recipient of January's LittleBigFund. You all raised over $730 together to give this fantastic nonprofit and I'm sure they look forward to using it. When talking to their director, GYU had this to say about why they need the fund:
"GYU aims to increase its student participation rate, refine curriculum development, hire a full-time Executive Director and staff, and plan for program enhancement and expansion. The program that we provide is vital in filling the gaps in youth learning and development and we want to continue providing positive alternatives to high school youth, engaging them with role models, and empowering them to become leaders in their communities, that is why we need LittleBigFund’s help!!!”
The LittleBigFund is all about empowering you, a totally normal person, to work with others and turn lots of little actions into one big one. Small actions matter so much when they're combined and I'm thrilled every month we do that through The LittleBigFund. GYU is such a fantastic organization that truly engaged their community to win the fund this month. I dream of a day where we can raise enough to split the fund between all three featured nonprofits, but, until then, I'm so happy to help out at least one.
Next month's theme starts tomorrow! Is February the month you start giving back?
