Jimmy’s Kids, a charity started in 1988 that serves 25,000 indigent kids by national youth speaker, Jim Tuman, is expanding its mission.
Teen suicide, teen violence and bullying are at an epidemic crisis
resulting in tens of thousands of lost lives of children.
Several of Jim’s programs dealing with these topics; Voice of Reason, Circle of Influence and goal programs already have a great track record of 15+ years of success in schools. His new endeavors, such as the national movie “A Girl Like Her” in which he had a role and a PBS documentary on Jim Tuman’s work and his fight for solutions, provide great insight and call to action to alleviate these problems.
The goal of $15,000 is to expand these programs to encompass 100 schools. Many programs will be initiated and led by the outstanding high school sophomores who have attended HOBY Leadership Conferences (Hugh O’Brien Youth Leadership).
Because of the day-to-day crisis of these issues, we are looking for immediate donations to hit the ground running in the 2016-17 school year.
We are excited about the challenge and desperately need your help.
