Yes, we’re at again. Our Global Giving Challenge is back, and we need your help. To continue to use this as our fundraiser platform, we need 50 different donors to contribute $4,000. This is for our Make Every Dream Count campaign, which is to provide middle school and high school students in the Vancouver-Portland Metro area an opportunity to identify, build, and live their dream.
Here are the steps:
- Click on the picture.
- Select the amount below the big orange “donate” button.
- Click the orange “donate” button.
- Enter payment options.
- Enter billing information.
For every donation, 5% of the proceeds will go to Hayes Freedom High School ASB in Camas, WA. This was our very first school that gave us the opportunity to help youth.
To live the “American Dream” is what the United States is known for. As Americans, we all have that opportunity. No matter what age, race, gender, or any other difference- you can live your dream.
However, as a global community we all have big ambitions, goals, and dreams. Everyone should, right?! So why aren’t we all living it, right?
It is because one little word… that word is, rejection. Rejection may be defined as a negative word, but it can also be defined to:
- Problem solve
- Encourage you to get help
- Try again
It should never ever discourage you to think you’re a failure- or even worse, for you to stop your dream!
As the founder (that’s me to the right), I founded this organization in 2004. Dream Big Community Center was started as a small goal with no identity, nor any money in the bank. We had very little supporters and a lot of naysayers. Matter of fact, the wall behind me is my rejection wall.
My rejection wall has all my official denial letters from grants and donations from reputable organizations. I look at it every day to serve as a reminder of how important our work is to our youth and the community. The reason why we’re still around is because I didn’t give up. If I would have given up, I would have missed out on all my supporters and smiling young faces.
Do Not Give Up!
