Together We Rise is a 501(c)3 non-profit organization comprised of motivated young adults and former foster youth. Our vision is to improve the lives of foster children in America, who often find themselves forgotten and neglected by the public. With the current rate of over two out of three foster children dying, going to jail, or going homeless within one year of turning 18, our job is more important than ever.
My name is Jason Rosa and I have been given the wonderful opportunity to intern for this amazing company. As an intern, I will be responsible for organizing a fundraising event for the company over the duration of the semester. For my fundraiser I will be working with the local community to raise money that will go towards the donation of musical instruments to foster homes throughout Rhode Island. As an amateur musician, I know first-hand the tremendous benefits that playing a musical instrument can have on a person. With over 80% of foster children having serious emotional problems, I believe that music could give them a way to cope with their problems through a positive form of self-expression. This is why I am asking for your support towards this amazing cause. I am looking for money donations, new or used musical instruments, or gift cards that will go directly towards foster children in Rhode Island. Every little bit helps tremendously!
My goal is to raise upwards of $3,000 by mid-December towards the purchase of starter guitars and basic equipment for over 50 foster children throughout Rhode Island. To donate, you can use this site, or mail the donation to me in a letter. My mailing address is as follows:
Roger Williams University Box #8159
One Old Ferry Road
Bristol, RI 02809
