Why contribute to Healthy Kids?
Because you believe that there is only one way to make real change… from the ground up. Every cent that you donate will fund our 4 community organizers, working in the field, based throughout the state. They are doing the high-stress, travel-heavy, one-on-one work of engaging kids, families, churches, community groups and other allies in the fight against child poverty.
You know LeeAnn, Lisa, Carey Jo, and Chris — because you have seen them in your community centers and neighborhoods, listening, prodding, and strategizing with you. And you have celebrated with them, as we have fought together to win 14 statewide victories in the last 2 years - from raising the Minimum Wage, to restoring children’s funding, to increasing physical activity in schools, to starting the Parents as Mentors program, to giving out 42 Try This mini-grants to promote healthy lifestyles.
We want to keep them on-board next year, and beyond… but it is difficult to fund community organizing. Not everyone sees the benefit of it. Some fear it is too controversial. But, you get it… and we are asking you to make a contribution and join us at next week’s celebration.
Thank you for your interest in supporting “A Family Celebration: The First Annual WV Healthy Kids and Families Coalition Fundraiser.” We are proud to be celebrating 14 statewide policy victories, the launch of the Try This movement (trythiswv.com), and more than a decade of advocating for universal health coverage for West Virginia children.
We have tickets available for $50 and $100, and some scholarship tickets available too (email firstname.lastname@example.org). Or, just log-on and make a donation. It all helps!
