We would like to thank everyone who participated in Teen Court of Sarasota's first #GivingTuesday #unselfie Challenge! From all of the social media "likes," "comments," and "shares," to everyone who accepted our challenge and posted an #unselfie explaining why they give to Teen Court, and especially to all of you who supported us by making a donation - YOU are the reason this campaign was so successful! Thank you!
Our Board of Directors, along with The John Chapman Law Firm, P.A., started #GivingTuesday off right with their generous Leadership Gift! Thank you!
Late Tuesday night, we received a large donation from CRM South Roofing Solutions, who had learned about Teen Court's programs and services through the story of Katy McBrayer, a Teen Court Board Member and alumni of the program. We are so appreciative of Katy for sharing her story, and to CRM South Roofing Solutions for their generosity!
With this being the first year Teen Court has participated in #GivingTuesday, we set our fundraising goal for $5,000, hoping we would reach it, but having no idea if we would. It is with utmost gratitude to all of YOU that we announce the total funds raised in the #GivingTuesday #unselfie Challenge is $7,000!!! Wow!
Thank you so much for giving the gift of a law-related education and a second chance at a bright future to thousands of young people in our community!
