ACTion Alexandria's biggest action of the year, Spring2ACTion, begins at midnight on May 2, and we urge you to help us make it a record breaker. Last year, we all worked together to raise $104,000. This year, our goal is to help local nonprofits raise $200,000 in just 24 hours!
Starting January 9th, Douglas MacArthur Elementary School will be joining up with approximately 25,000 schools across the country in the Pennies for Patients program. Money raised from this threee week event will help those who are ill with blood cancers such as Leukemia, Lyphoma and Myeloma.
Way to go Team ACTion Alexandria! Thanks to you, we raised $1,000 for Higher Achievement, enough to send 90 Alexandria scholars on 4 well-deserved field trips!
Field trips are critical to the success of Higher Achievement scholars. They are able to build relationships with mentors, interact with the community outside the center, and feel recognized and celebrated for their academic achievement.
This success wouldn't have been possible without a $500 match from the RunningBrooke Fund,
Sunday is the September 11th Day of Service and Remembrance. It's a day we pay tribute to those who were lost and to honor the heroes who answered the call to serve on that day and in the weeks and months that followed through action.
I don't know about you, but this week's earthquake brought a new level of significance to our Healthy Families Alexandria Home Safety Kit action. There is nothing more important than making your home as safe as possible for your family. It also made meeting our goal that much sweeter!
Brain development in the first 3 years is critical to life-long academic outcomes and the language and literacy rich environment provided by the CAC developmental playgroups help address the gap in development of young children for some of the most vulnerable and underserved families in Alexandria.
We did it! You guys didn't need 5 days ys for our We Are Readers action last week. You donated 120 books in just 4 days! A record 35 people clicked on the Take Action button to donate books for this great program and The Reading Connection folks couldn't be happier. Executive Director of The Reading Connection, Courtney Kissell sent you this heartfelt message of thanks:
We're biased but we LOVE our new Spring2ACTion flyers. Not everyone is a fan of what I call "disco pink," but you can't deny it gets your attention. If you want to help us out by distributing this at your organization or place of business, let us know.The giving starts May 5th! Find out more at Spring2ACTion.org.
It tooks us a little bit longer to get our final tally for the Arlandria Health Center for Pediatrics Pedialyte action launched two weeks ago, but we finally got it. 20 Alexandrians took action and donated 320 single servings of pediatric electrolyte solution (192 liquid and 128 freezer pops), That's double our goal of 160!
