Inspired: Pennies From Heaven
November 28, 2012
Our friends at YABU PUSHELBERG are coming together this holiday season to help others!
The Hetrick-Martin Institute is a safe place in New York City where at risk youth, ages 12 to 24, receive academic enrichment, counseling, clothing, meals and support.
The Hetrick-Martin Institute had expected to hold their annual fundraising gala in late October, but then Hurricane Sandy hit, forcing them to cancel this important event. Now, weeks later, this vital charity is struggling to re-coop a $ 400,000.00 fundraising shortfall! They’re hoping YOU can help.
George Yabu and Glenn Pushelberg organized something called Pennies From Heaven and would greatly appreciate any and all assistance you can provide.
On Monday, December 10th, from 10:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m., we’ll be accepting donations at Yabu Pushelberg’s Toronto offices located at 55 Booth Avenue. We’re looking for our family, friends and business associates to drop into their offices with their loose change – ALL loose change is welcome!
Here’s what you can do:
1) Collect as much loose change as you possibly can and bring it to our offices at 55 Booth Avenue on December 10th.
2) Enlist the help of all your staff members and friends to collect as much money as possible.
3) Make a more substantial donation – cheques are also welcome! Payable to the Hetrick-Martin Institute.
4) Promote our fundraising event within your business – We can supply you with posters to promote our event.
5) Forward this e-mail and our PDF invitation to as many people asking them to help too!
In this season of giving, we hope we can count on your assistance to help this worthy and greatly needed organization. Let’s all help Hetrick-Martin continue to help a group of young people see their way to a brighter future!!!
