Make Hope Tangible by Donating
We are accepting donations for students and kids who are growing up under adverse circumstances and who cannot afford books. We are also looking to provide workshops to at-risk students and children. The workshops will help students learn skills to transition back to school after the Covid-19 pandemic. The pandemic has hit children on multiple fronts including social isolation, family stress, a breakdown in routine, and anxiety over school closures and the virus itself.
Dr. Michael Allen and Gilbert Allen will create an environment for students to open up and talk about challenges they may face with returning back to school in the fall. They will also provide various mindfulness meditation exercises to help with self-regulation. Finally, they will share their story of breaking free from poverty, and how Michael adopted Gilbert to raise him and teach him important life skills to cope with everyday life.
