Goal

My goal is to help raise money for At The Crossroads by tackling a personal goal that’s been on my to-do list for a while: start a blog and update it at least once a week.

By supporting this campaign, you're going to donate to an amazing cause and you're going to help me to accomplish something I haven't been able to motivate myself to do for the past several years. It's a win. win.

Now here’s the deal: If you donate at least $25 to this campaign (which will go directly to support the amazing work done by At The Crossroads), I’ll send you the super secret link to my blog so you can subscribe and follow along with my adventures. And the fact that I know you'll be reading will help me to keep posting.

here’s what I can promise. Among other things, the blog will have:

jokes

recipes

pictures

stories

and lottttts of secrets

soooo, help me out and support ATC!

I chose this goal because

I love to write, and I have wanted to start a blog for a while. It's something that i think about all the time. I've even had the name of my blog and the site reserved for over two years. and yet, not a word has been written. This is a chance to make it happen. It may seem like such a small thing to do, but i know it will mean a lot to me to do it.

Having a blog will also help my family and friends track what I'm up to. I had a blog when I lived abroad that I updated regularly, and it brought me a lot of joy. It was a wonderful way to share my adventures with my family and friends back home.

Also, I have a crappy memory. real crappy. and when I go back and read my Chilean blog, it brings back so many memories that would have otherwise been completely lost.

To me, the I Think I Can campaign is about small change. It's about taking steps towards who you want to be. It's about recognizing something very doable in my life that I can change that will have a big impact on my happiness.

I'm helping because

ATC makes a difference. They reach out to young people at a time in their lives when they are most fragile. I'm helping because even though I don't know any of the kids that are helped by At The Crossroads, I want them to know that people believe in them. I believe in them.

and that people care about them. I care about them.

The people at ATC are changing lives, and I've known about their work for over two years. I've supported the campaigns of friends who have participated in the past, but this is my first year joining. I want to do whatever I can to support the great work done by ATC.

I'm helping because it takes more than believing and caring to make change.

About At The Crossroads

ATC walks the streets of San Francisco, reaching out to homeless youth and young adults on their turf. We work with young people who others have given up on, who would not get help without us. Since we started 19 years ago, we have worked with more than 7,500 youth, helping them build outstanding lives.
