MEET ISMEYDA – Your $20 donation can change the life of a child!

Inspire a Child -EIGHT TO CREATE. We will profile one Arts to Grow student for EIGHT WEEKS through the end of the year to highlight how arts education can impact kids in at-risk schools. To date, our campaign has raised 470 dollars from 16 donors! And with your support, we can help inspire more young people by expanding our arts education programs next year.

Can you help today? WE NEED 75 SUPPORTERS TO GIVE JUST $20 EACH, so we can meet our year-end fundraising goal and continue our Theater Workshop Program for 3rd – 4th graders at a low income school in Cypress Hills, Brooklyn. 

IshmeydaThis is Ismeyda. A raw talent with her singing voice and acting ability, a limited reading ability first stood in her way.  Through rehearsals, she has reached a higher reading level, and gained self-confidence on the stage. She has an excellent command of theatre vocabulary and skill—she often would lead warm-up exercises and can explain curriculum to new students.  Ismeyda graduated IS 171 in June 2011 and is now attending Brooklyn High School of the Arts. 

As many of our supporters know, Arts to Grow plays a vital role in shaping the educational outcomes of at-risk youth. During November/December we want to raise $1,500 in online contributions to continue our theater workshop for 40 underserved 3rd – 4th graders at Cypress Hills Local Development Corporation’s/PS 7 After School program in Brooklyn. 

Currently, we have over 50 schools on our waiting list for dance, theater, music & visual arts programs. These programs are always NO COST to students.

DONATE NOW to support kids like Ismeyda, and you will play a vital role in boosting student achievement and self-confidence through creative expression.  THANK YOU for changing the life of a child!

Best Wishes,

Mallory King
