Honoring What Would be Jesse’s 18th Birthday

Jun 12, 2024 | Donor News, Fundraisers, General, Scarlett's Blog

June is here and that means our annual fundraising effort in honor of Jesse’s would-be 18th birthday. This year is special as well because Jesse would be (should be) graduating from high school as well. What happened to Jesse was 100% preventable, and YOU and I are working to address the root cause of the suffering that led to what is still the worst mass shooting in an elementary school in US history.

We’re all here because we’ve made a commitment to the Choose Love Movement, and want to be part of the solution. I need YOUR HELP and hope we can work together to do better for our children. Choose Love is an opportunity for YOU to leave a legacy that extends far beyond yourself and your family.

General McCraven said in his famous University of Texas commencement speech (see below) that the average American will meet 10,000 people in their lifetime. If each one of us changed the lives of just 10 people, and each one of those folks changed the lives of another 10 people, just 10, then in 5 generations, 125 years, we will have changed the lives of 800 million people.

The Choose Love Movement is impacting millions of children, their parents, and educators around the world. You are part of this Movement, in fact leading it, and I am grateful that you have stepped up and are doing your best to further love in action. We are all connected in the want and need to love and be loved. When I Choose Love, I both offer, and receive, ‘Nurturing Healing Love’ to and from the world. This takes General McCraven’s admonition to the next level, through us!

To continue Jesse’s legacy of spreading Nurturing Healing Love around the world, we need your help. Choose Love is a small grass-roots movement that has grown organically because of people like you. This year, we have been given us a tremendous fundraising opportunity that we have never done before. To ensure sustainability for continued growth, our matching sponsor will match recurring donations of $20+ monthly! So if you give a gift $20 or more recurring monthly donation, Choose Love will receive a matching donation of $250, up to $10,000 by June 30th, Jesse’s birthday!! Wow!!

Share this opportunity on social and with friends and family. Sing your involvement with the Choose Love Movement from the rooftops! No one on the planet is doing more than we are to help create a safer, more peaceful and loving world!

Choosing love,
