Welcome to the first edition of The Latest!
Here’s where we will periodically share news about our Donors and donees, our activities, our valued Partner Charities, and staff.
one2one USA has had an active 2018 to date. So far, we have created over 20 Charitable Programs that were tailored to the causes that mattered most to our Donors. We have increased our number of Partner Charities to 30. Some of our goals for the next six months are to sustain our steady growth, to continue to improve the lives of donees by expanding our network of Donors, and to increase public awareness of our charitable work.
Partner Charity Spotlight
Some of our staff attended our valued Partner Charity Foster Pride’s 25th Anniversary Celebration in downtown NYC, where we were able to meet with one of our amazing donees and hear about some of the great work he is doing at his Donor-funded internship. Foster Pride’s mission is to improve the lives of youth in foster care by helping them develop their talents and build self-esteem through mentoring relationships and the arts.
An incredible Donor family with five school-aged kids approached us with the desire to assist low-income students who showed academic promise pursue their goals of attending top private high schools and colleges. Recently, we were able to pair this family with four amazing students from our Partner Charity New Jersey SEEDS, and we are excited to report that all four will be attending their chosen schools in the fall!
“The work you are doing is making it possible for these young adults to realize a brighter future. one2one is filling a gap that NJ SEEDS is simply unable to fill”
