During Amplify Austin 2019, I'm going to be #hereforkids who've been abused or neglected by supporting @CASATravis. I hope you will join me by donating to my Amplify Austin fundraising page! My goal is to raise $250 to recruit a new CASA volunteer to speak up for kids -or- $2,000 to give a child a CASA volunteer for an entire year (or your personal goal)! - your personal fundraising link

Kids can't do it alone. Every kid needs someone to teach them how to tie their shoes, to talk them through a hard day at school, to cheer them on at their soccer game… Kids who’ve been abused or neglected need even more help. They need the help of a dedicated CASA volunteer, so during Amplify Austin 2019 I'm going to be #hereforkids by fundraising for @CASATravis. Please consider a donation to my Amplify fundraising page! - your personal fundraising link

Dear friend,

Kids can't do it alone. Every kid needs someone to teach them how to tie their shoes, to talk them through a hard day at school, to cheer them on at their soccer game…

Kids who’ve been abused or neglected have an even greater need for a dedicated adult by their side. They need someone to come see them when they move to a new foster home, to make sure they get to see brothers and sisters when they’re living apart, and to be there when the scariness and confusion of the child welfare system feels overwhelming.

This year during Amplify Austin, I'm going to be #hereforkids by fundraising for CASA of Travis County. My goal is to raise....

I hope you will join me in being #hereforkids by donating at my personal fundraising page - your personal fundraising link. Your gift will ensure that children in foster care have a dedicated CASA volunteer by their side, so they don't have to do it alone.

Sincerely,

Your name
