SUBJECT:  Support Children of Promise NYC this Holiday Season!

Dear Friends & Family:

This holiday season, I hope you will join me in supporting Children of Promise, NYC (CPNYC), a nonprofit in Bedford Stuyvesant, Brooklyn that works to embrace and empower children of incarcerated parents.

I am working alongside CPNYC to highlight the organization's holistic approach to breaking the cycle of intergenerational through mental health services, family engagement opportunities, after-school programming, a summer day camp, and mentoring programs. CPNYC helps children cope with the trauma and emotional challenges  that stems from parental incarceration.

My goal is to raise $xxxx, which will ensure CPNYC is able to continue to provide the best, trauma informed care and services for our most vulnerable population - our youth.

In order to reach this goal, I need your help!! Please donate HERE.

I hope you’re as excited as we are to impact on the lives of this deserving population and help #BreaktheCycle.

Thank you!
