We’re asking you to help Do the Bright Thing for a couple of reasons. First, because childhood homelessness is a problem that’s too often overlooked. By bringing it to light, we can get more involved people in the fight to end it. Second, because this work is truly about creating a brighter future—both for the kids we serve, and the community we all call home.
In the past year, the need for our services has grown faster than our ability to meet it. Homelessness has increased by 27%. Pandemic learning-loss has left thousands of children struggling to stay on track in school. Without consistent support and guidance, these children are at risk of falling hopelessly behind.
But we won’t let that happen. Children have a right to an education, and we’re committed to making sure they get it. So we’re calling on supporters like you to help us expand our giving circle so we can expand our reach. Stay tuned for more details on how you can help.
