Join me on Giving Tuesday to support local youth get outside!
As many of you know I'm a proud Board Member of Outward Bound California (OBCA) and deeply believe in their transformational outdoor leadership programs. This Giving Tuesday, I am raising funds to support Bay Area programs including our recently opened Ropes Challenge Course, built in partnership with SF Recreation and Parks Department to serve students from San Francisco's southeast neighborhoods. We have programs running RIGHT NOW - following all COVID safety guidelines of course.
OBCA is working to break down barriers and increase access, particularly for students from under-resourced communities and those disproportionately affected by systemic racism, school closures, and lack of access to safe outdoor spaces. These students need opportunities to heal, connect and build confidence after such a challenging year. Your donation will support students attending programs like the ropes course which is free of charge for almost all attending students, and help OBCA double the number of students they serve in California!
Everyone, especially today’s youth, needs the healing, basic human need for equitable access to the outdoors. That’s why I need your support! Any amount you can donate will help young people from economically vulnerable communities to get outside, challenge themselves, and discover that there is more in them than they realize. Even in this virtual space, we can be #ResilientTogether. Join me and give today!
