For GIVING TUESDAY, support other kids like me who desperately need help and hope so they can get their life back on track and build a better future.

I know how it feels to be alone. 
At school, I was bullied, judged, and ignored because I was a timid person. 
Plus, my mom was in a tough financial situation. 
And my uncle, who was like a father figure to me, died.

They say that you need two things in order to survive high school: friends and adults that will be with you, no matter what. 
I found both of them at the YMCA.

So many people don’t know that the YMCA is much more than a gym! 
In fact, the Y was there at many pivotal moments of my life. 
Like a parent to me, showing me what I could be.

I’m sharing my story with you today because I know firsthand what the YMCA means to so many kids.  

Offer her a welcoming place to forget about her problems and get the help she needs.
Help him stay in school and graduate.
Help him participate in activities that they would otherwise not be able to access.
Help him gain healthy habits that they will keep forever.

By supporting the YMCA, you’re giving youth who are going through a hard time a safe place where they can get together and grow up together. Where they can make friends and be themselves, without being judged. A haven that makes life easier.

The YMCA is a haven for youth experiencing tough times. 
Like a refuge where they can get together and spend time together to make their lives easier. More survivable. They’re not alone thanks to your kind and caring gift. 
They’re with other people who will support them, no matter what.
