The Chairman of the Miss America’s Outstanding Teen Organization sent out this touching letter encouraging fans of the respected teen scholarship program to give back…
Many of you are familiar with the US Dream Academy because of its founder and our friend and MAOTeen board member, Wintley Phipps. Wintley literally travels 100’s of thousands of miles each year, fundraising for his organization. He uses his God-given oratorical and musical gifts to call attention to the plight of the children of incarcerated parents. The after-school “Dream Centers”, located in 11 US cities are havens of security and learning for 600 boys and girls…and they need our help!
In the spirit of the Season and “MAOTeen Gives Back”, I would like to challenge each of you to take a moment and give a donation of at least $10.00 (more if you can!) and ask 10 of your friends/family to do the same. Let’s see if the MAOTeen family can fill this need.
Please click on the link www.mydreamleaf.com and make your donation. While you are there, watch the short videos…you may see someone you know!! Then forward this email to all of your family and friends. If you have Facebook or other social media sites, there are instructions to help you place the link on your sites. There is great power in numbers…let’s use our numbers to help the US Dream Academy!
Thank you to each of you for your continued participation and support of the Miss America’s Outstanding Teen organization. You are a valued friend and MAOTeen family member!
