Dear LEVATUS Friends & Family,
This evening we are thankful for One Bead, a non-profit organization whose philosophy is near and dear to our hearts. Empowering young students right here in Boston, this innovative approach to programming takes service based learning and community impact to a whole new level. A service project is the catalyst for lessons on entrepreneurship, empathy, civic engagement, social emotional awareness, public speaking and leadership. The take away is self-confidence.
One Bead helps youth in Boston at the very granular level. From the second grader in East Boston who confidently stood up in front of the class and convinced his peers that gender stereotyping is a problem to a seventh grade class that designed and manufactured water bottles to help solve the negative effects of too many sugary drinks. By starting at a very young age, One Bead hopes to impact these children when it can make the most difference.
This year, the goal is to raise $3,300 at our annual Thanksgiving party. This is the private donation required to launch one new One Bead Youth Leadership Program (YLP) here in Boston. During this program students are given the resources to bring to life their very own idea for solving a problem that they identify in their community. This kind of social impact experience can be a life changing, positive catalyst.
We appreciate your consideration, every little bit helps, and hope to see you at Cheese for Good on November 28!
The LEVATUS Team
