#CultureALLConnects Kids: How You Can Help on #GivingTuesday

#CultureALLConnects Kids - Lia's Story

Today is #GivingTuesday, and CultureALL is kicking off our #CultureALLConnects end-of-year campaign by showing you how #CultureALLConnects kids to culture – and to each other – through our programs.

The Goal

We’re asking YOU to help us meet our goal to raise at least $5,000 before midnight on Tuesday, November 28. Our newest Community Partner – EMC Insurance Foundation – has pledged $2,500 to help us towards this goal. Will you help us match it?

Lia’s Story

Check out this video to see how a CultureALL after school program helped a little girl named Lia who was struggling to fit in at her new school:

The Girl In the Pink Parka

Lia’s story comes to us from our Program Director Stacey Kimberlin. It was Stacey who first noticed Lia, dubbing her “The Girl In The Pink Parka” because she wouldn’t take her puffy pink coat off in class. Learn more about Lia’s story – and make your tax-deductible contribution to our #CultureALLConnects year-end campaign – on our secure donation page at Network for Good:


#CultureALLConnects Kids

The #CultureALLConnects campaign is all about showing you how your contributions are helping CultureALL bring people together to create connections.  A huge part of our work involves K-12 students.  When kids see that their culture is valued at school, they feel better about school.  They are more engaged, more capable of communicating and forming relationships with kids from other cultures, and and more likely to remain in school.  That helps keep them on the path to high school graduation and greater success as members of a global community.

#CultureALLConnects Kids - Lia's Story has a happy ending
