In collaboration with Downtown Hollywood’s Party with a Purpose, fellow JAB member, Anielya, and I raised $580 for Joshua’s Heart Foundation. Our project, a school supply fundraiser, was meant to assist students while they prepared for school. We are students ourselves and we know how important it is to have new clothes and supplies. We realized we could start making changes at a local level. Provide students with the tools to get an education and you empower them to become leaders.
Hollywood’s Party with a Purpose is held once a month at different Hollywood businesses. Not only does the event showcase small Hollywood businesses, but also promotes nonprofit organizations. To raise money, I created gift baskets to raffle off at the party. I sold entry tickets and raffle tickets as well.
With the funds from the event, Anielya purchased fresh uniforms for students in Miramar. I purchased school supplies such as notebooks, folders, pencils, sharpeners, pens, glue and packs of paper. I have also been collecting books and hope to distribute them along with my supplies to make a greater impact.
