Simply Solar Supports One Cold Night
Exactly 14 months from our communities devisating fires, on December 7th, Ben Goldberg of Simply Solar will be sleeping outside the SAY Dream Center to advocate for the many kids who go to sleep without a home every night in Sonoma County. 1000's of famlies lost their homes a year ago; however, these kids don't know what home is. Between now and then, Simply Solar is committed to fundraising for Social Advocates for Youth (SAY) and the thousands of youth and families they serve.
2018 is and was a difficult year for me personally. With my own personal challenges, growth, and changes I stand before you asking for your help. $10 , $50, $100, or even $500, it all makes a difference. The best way to support me personally is helping me with my fundraising efforts this holiday season. "I DO IT FOR THE KIDS"
For those ages 18-24, 88% percent are unsheltered and will sleep on the streets tonight.
The young people I’m sleeping out for may be escaping years of physical abuse, a dangerous human trafficking ring, a drug-addicted parent, a house overflowing with rage, or may have “aged-out” of the foster care system with little to no resources for self-sufficiency. And guess what? Most young people experiencing homelessness are unseen by me and you every day. They are sleeping on couches, they’re sleeping in a broken down car, or they’re trying to stay safe in remote places of the county that are unfit and dangerous for humans, especially young people, to live in.
SAY’s services help homeless and disconnected youth stabilize their lives, find safe housing, explore their educational goals, and develop the skills to become contributing community and workforce members.
Today I ask you to help me support the work of SAY and give all youth the tools and skills they need to achieve self-sufficiency. Please click the donate button on this page and join us in ensuring that the trauma of homelessness and disconnection loosens its grip on the deserving, at-risk youth struggling in our community. PLEASE DONATE.
On behalf of the lives you will change with your gift, thank you!
