Dear Friends & Family,
I am excited to share that Downtown Streets Team is once again hosting our Second Annual Downtown Dropdown fundraiser and that I will be rappelling down the side of Adobe headquarters (16 stories) for a second time - I can't wait!
2017 was a BLAST and with your support (community leaders, sponsors, partners, staff, board and individual community members), our event raised close to $200,000! Every dollar raised last year was used to support DST's work to end homelessness here in our community.
This year our goal is to raise $150,000 and I am not only pledging to go over the edge, I have committed to raising $2,000. The vision of Downtown Streets Team is to rebuild the lives of people who are experiencing homelessness by providing them with work-experience and the necessary tools to help them off the street for good. No one should ever experience homelessness, and I want to make sure that those who are have the opportunity change their life.
$2,000 allows DST to provide work experience for 20+ Team Members.
My goal is to fundraise $2,000 for Downtown Streets Team because it will help 20+ people secure employment and housing, bringing hope and dignity back to the lives of people who are experiencing homelessness. It seems like a lofty goal, but it will help so many people get off the streets. It is far more expensive for someone to live on the streets than it is to get them housed and off the streets.
How can you help? By making a 100% tax deductible donation to my fundraiser. Check out my fundraising page and please consider making a donation to help me reach my goal of $2,000 by September 1, 2018.
