I joined a Facebook Group today titled "Stop Killing our Children". I'm one of 39,000 people in this group.
Imagine if every one were to contribute $10 to a tutor/mentor program in Chicago. That would be $390,000 new dollars to fund programs like Cabrini Connections.
Imagine if everyone were to recruit 30 of their Facebook Friends to do the same. That would make the total almost $1 million.
Can you imagine what that would do for making volunteer-based tutor/mentor programs like Cabrini Connections available to more kids, in more neighborhoods?
I posted the graphic above, which is an animation that shows how volunteers become more deeply committed to the kids, and the programs, each year that they are involved. If these 39,000 interested people give $10 a year, and encourage the same from 30 of their friends, who recruit 30 of their friends, programs in many places will have the flexible operating dollars needed to coach this type of involvement.

Attend the Tutor/Mentor Conference on May 27 and 28 and learn more about how you and your friends can help make more and better learning and enrichment and career mentoring activities available in high poverty neighborhoods.
