Be a Hero this Holiday Season

The simple act of caring is heroic. Be a hero this holiday season.
With the holidays around the corner, you may wonder what this season is like for a student in foster care or just aging out and on their own. As a young adult trying to navigate school and independence without the support system many of us take for granted, the holiday season is more of a challenge and less of a celebration. While we can never replace a family, we can share a little joy and let these students know someone cares.

Share your holiday joy and help fill a Holiday Cheer Box for a student today! Please help us raise enough to send every one of these amazing students a little cheer and love.

Your gift is tax deductible as per your local regulations, as we are a tax-exempt organization. – 501c3 #83-1710717
