I am writing to ask you to join Education Plus 2 (a 501c3 community based organization) in its 2018 summer camp fund-raising efforts. Please help us spread the word by sharing this letter with your family members, friends, organizations and businesses. Tax deductible donations provide disadvantaged children and youth with six weeks of our health and wellness summer camp, known as “You Don’t Have to Be What You See – Go Green, Get Fit.” You will help EP2 in its continuing effort to create healthy families – one family at a time. Your donations will provide a safe, exciting, summer experience during which campers are even introduced to skills in the fields of aquatics and urban farming.
Your financial help is urgently needed! Many of our children/youth and their families witness and experience unnecessary drowning and water accidents due to little or no knowledge of water safety. Many of the children/youth and their families experience chronic generational diseases (high blood pressure, diabetes, asthma, obesity etc.) simply due to unhealthy lifestyles and poor diets. But with training in water safety and urban farming, youth are safer, healthier, and they realize they can seek employment – one day becoming lifeguards, pool managers, swimming instructors, urban farmers, and entrepreneurs.
The EP2 six week summer camp offers campers that training and necessary education while they have fun developing the very skills they will need to hold jobs, to make wise decisions, to be strong and healthy individuals and community members. An added bonus to introducing campers to the skills of water safety and urban gardening is that these young ones then immediately help their families and communities become healthier through fitness and nutrition.
Please mail your donations to Education Plus 2, Administrative Office, 1830 16th Street NW Suite One, Washington, DC 20009. Phone us at 202-689-5683 if you have any questions.
I look forward to your help in this effort to work for our children and youth and their families.
