Hi there! My name is Rida and I am a part of the Class of 2018 Teen Leadership Corps at Cradles to Crayons (Philadelphia). Cradles to Crayons is a nonprofit organization that provides children from birth to age 12 with everyday essential items for them to thrive. I personally joined this organization because I wanted to benefit my community in a more tangible way. I now have the honor of being a part of a process where I get to see my volunteer work directly benefitting a child in poverty. This nonprofit makes a huge impact in a city like Philadelphia, where the poverty rate is at 26% (2016), and the deep poverty rate is at 12.9% (2016). And unfortunately, these numbers are only increasing. My goal for this fundraiser is to raise $500, or enough money to provide 15 children the proper necessities in order for them to thrive, feel safe, comfortable, and most importantly, happy. Each donation, no matter how small, makes a difference to the organization and the children they serve. Thank you for reading, and click above to donate to this organization.

Please help our 2017-18 Teen Leadership Corps members reach their goal!
These student leaders are supporting the mission of Cradles to Crayons to provide everyday essentials to local children in need throughout the Greater Philadelphia region. Each TLC member will be leading volunteer shifts in our Giving Factory warehouse and has pledged to raise at least $500 during their term.
Your donation on this page will go toward the entire TLC campaign, or you can choose a Teen Leader from the "Our Fundraisers" box on the lower right to support an individual student's efforts.
We are proud of their initiative and grateful for their efforts.
Thank YOU for supporting them!
