Dear New Look Nation,
You know the saying, ‘It takes a village to raise a child’? Well, the village is on fire and we need YOUR help to build it back up. This Thursday, November 13th, can you help us meet our Georgia Gives Day goal and ultimately help more youth become #BIGGERTHAN their circumstances?
Each year, 1.3 million U.S. students drop out of high school. That’s a whopping 7,200 a day – One student every 26 seconds. Stats tell us, students who drop out are more susceptible to crime, unemployment and homelessness. Why is this happening? Because students aren’t getting the support and resources they need to achieve their full potential. The future is in the hands of these kids, and we’re letting them slip through the cracks. This situation isn’t going to fix itself!
That’s why New Look is at the forefront of the youth crisis, and YOU can be too!
Usher’s New Look is meeting kids where their interests lie and engaging them with rewarding, innovative and just plain COOL, CAREER and EDUCATIONAL opportunities. Our programs across the country are literally giving kids “new looks” on life through experiences they never dreamt possible, which is why 100% of students who complete our programs are graduating High School and 98% are going onto college… But we can’t do it without YOU!
On Thursday, November 13th, we’re going to need your help. We’re participating in the biggest online fundraiser we’ve ever done -Georgia Gives Day. Since 1999, we’ve served over 21,000 youth, but our goal is to serve 50,000 youth by 2016. To do this, we need to raise $25,000 by November 14th.
Will you be a hero? Will you help us save more students from dropping out?
