Why should you donate?
Kinston Teens is launching a fundraiser to raise $15,000 to go towards purchasing a van for our organization. Plus, Facebook will be matching EVERY donation made starting at 8AM on Tuesday, November 27 in celebration of #GivingTuesday. So that means, whatever you donate to Kinston Teens, Facebook will DOUBLE it! 💰😄
Since 2014, Kinston Teens has made an impact on the lives of over 3,000 youth through our membership efforts, Youth Summit, community workshops, volunteer initiatives, leadership development seminars, and programs and assemblies at local schools.
In addition to our work in the community, we've also had some amazing opportunities to travel across the state and country. From attending TEDxTeen and the Nickelodeon HALO Awards in New York City, to meeting government leaders and visiting monuments in Washington, D.C., meeting with our legislators in Raleigh, visiting colleges across the state, or traveling to volunteer in other nearby communities — we've often had to hit the road, and we've had a great time on each trip, but almost every time it is a big challenge for us.
We're in need of reliable transportation to help get our group of young people to and from. We love to travel when opportunities arise, but it seems to get harder every time — having to travel to Greenville, Goldsboro or New Bern to rent a passenger van, having to gather funds to *afford* a passenger van rental, or asking other organizations or churches if we can borrow their van for a trip. We'd love to solve these challenges by having our own! It will allow us to provide our own transportation on out of town trips, to visit more college campuses, and to make sure our members can get to and from our service projects right here in Kinston and Lenoir County.
We really need your help in making this dream become a reality! Please remember, whatever you donate will be MATCHED by Facebook! That means, if you donate $50, Kinston Teens will receive another $50 from Facebook to make that total $100! We are so grateful for your support, and for companies like Facebook that choose to empower organizations like ours through initiatives like this.
